Default Need help with sewing machine part?

So I have had a question about a sewing machine part? while baby sitting my nephew took it off the top cover of my sewing machine. It has been missing for a while know and hasn't really bothered me all that much until lately when I needed to use other stitches for a project. I know I could order it if I could figure out what it is called and were I could maybe order it from. It is the top cover to my sewing machine that holds down the stitching disk in my machine. Here is a picture of it!

What brand is the machine and what is the model number and/or name? There is just no way we can help you find anything for a machine that we don't even know at least the brand and model.

For such a specialty part, you will probably have to go to the manufacturer. If you give them your model number and serial number, they will probably be able to sell you the replacement part. You may be able to find it on their website.

No booklet that tells what things are? Have you gone online and looked for a manual for your machine? I would start there.
Good luck.

The stitching disks are called "cams." I would call it a "cam cover."

If I remember right, a guild member has this machine and she rarely closed the lid when sewing. Do you have to have it to change the cams?

This is the manual for a 5050. Another website comment said that the 5050 and the 5050C were the same machine. I hope this will help you.

Thank you so much I guess I don't need it, I'm hopping it shows up one day. I finally got the disk to sit down so that it doesn't come lose when I'm stitching.

I was looking at your photo and noticed that your sewing area tends to get dust and lint everywhere including all over the machine. Until you find/buy a new cover, consider taping a piece of paper over the area normally covered by the door to keep all the lint and fuzz from getting in the machine and causing repair bills. Just my thought.
