When I turn on my Brother xl3500i sewing machine, the light comes on but, when I press the presser foot nothing happens

Do you have a stitch picked? Did you read your manual? I think that you should look at the site if you do not have the manual. Unless you read the instructions you will get nowhere fast

How do i set the tension on my brother xl-3010 sewing machine . the bottom thread is always in knots but the top stitch is perfect. i do not know which wheel to turn for the bottom tension.

I don't have this machine, but the tension on the bobbin is usually set by the tiny screw on the bobbin case. insert the bobbin into the case so that the thread unrolls counter clockwise. Make sure that there is no lint in the bobbin area.

I need new needles and bobbins how do I find right ones

You can use Schmetz needles and the bobbins are Class A or Class 15. Both can be found where sewing notions are sold.

You choose the needle size according to the type of fabric you are sewing. This should be in the manual.

If you need a manual, you can download from the Brother website.
