Customer Question

I own a Singer 8500 Q sewing machine. I have only done 1 quilt on it and now it won't run. I get an error message 16 I noticed that there is a piece of metal that comes out over the bobbin area then I get the message. I can push it back in but as soon as I turn it back on it pops out again.
