First list the accounts:

> eth.accounts

NOTE: Even though you have mentioned that you want to set account 3 as default, selecting the account from the list displayed from the above command is important because there is a chance that the index of accounts is changed. 

Now to set the default account to account 3, you the following command:

> miner.setEtherbase(web3.eth.accounts[3])
