It would be called a Needle plate or Throat plate. Good luck finding them, I've never seen anything in the domestic machines... and industrial machines are just as difficult to find. Check with whomever you purchased it from. Perhaps they can direct you to a parts place.

I have a Juki8700 it does not seem to be feeding the fabric thru on the feed dog

ck presser foot tension. even with sightest presser ft tension goods should feed. next ck that your feeder plate is not loose or broken. take off the plate and see if u can move the feeders with your finger. tighten screws makinf sure the needle is centered inthe feeder plate hole. if this is not the problen then youe=r feeder plate teeth are too low or worn out. look up how to raise the feeders. the should be 1/8" above plate.

Are the feed dogs disengaged? Look for a slide switch or button on the back or on the front near the sewing area.

I have borrowed a 5700 from a friend who is currently unavailable to talk to. The problem is that I have no manual and the feeder is below the surface of the plate therefore the material won't feed...

There is sometimes a slide on the front base of the machine to raise and lower the feed dogs. It might have a symbol like triangles on it?

The feeder won't work right.

The machine is old and may not have been maintained. The feed dogs may be rusted.

Remove the needle plate and bobbin. Lightly mist the feed dogs with wd-40. Wipe away the excess with cotton swabs.

The feed dog switch is on the back side of the machine, on the base. It is on the base, near the area of the needle arm. Try switching the setting of the switch
