Question about Brother XL-3500
I am not sure what my tension is suppose to be set at
Hi, and welcome to FixYa. Normally, the default top tension setting on most machines is between 4 and 6. Brother manuals usually contain detailed information about tension and how to determine if your tension is set correctly, so check that section of your manual when you have time....if you don't have your manual...
you can find a copy to download for free on Brother's website (I added a link to the web page below). The same web page has other information about your machine that you might find helpful now or in the future. Even if you have the manual, it is worth a visit.
If you and other readers have a minute to rate my answer, it helps me better understand what readers are looking for when they come to the FixYa site for help.
Best of luck, and enjoy your machine. Don't hesitate to comment if the link doesn't' work, or if you have more questions. Cheers!
