Question about 2006 Ducati ST3 Abs

1 Answer

ST3 Q&A owners?

Still looking at the ST3. Maybe you owners could answer some questions. 1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag? 2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing? 3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes? 4. What are the recommended service intervals? 5. How expensive has dealer service actually been? Thanks for your anticipated replies.

    Canadian owner. The tank is steel and I use a magnetic bag. I can get about 300 kms. on a full tank of gas. The manual said 21 litres but I usually pump in about 19 191/2. Recommended service intervals every 12000 km. Parts and labour just under $1000 can. Parts shims and timing belts.

1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag? Steel - I use a bag that mounts to the fuel filler and does not touch the tank. 2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing? City, low light comes on at 125 miles (stop start 20 mile commute) takes 4.0-4.2 gals each fill. Highway, light comes on 150-170 miles, same fill. 3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes? Never experimented with it. Book says just over 5, I have never put more than 4.7 in it. 4. What are the recommended service intervals? 600 mile and then every 6000 5. How expensive has dealer service actually been? 600 about $320, 6000 about $600 depending on work 6. Fun factor? Lots

Tassimo low water light will not reset

The problem is because Tassimo water tanks have a floating magnet in them which operates the water level switch inside the body. The magnet gets weak over time. Replacement tanks cost too much to be worth the cost. The simple answer is to stick a fridge magnet on the back of the unit (just above the power switch) using blue tack or similar (you can experiment to find the right position). Our unit has been working fine like this for a few years now. :-)

1. Where is the lever located in the Saeco Incanto De Luxe located? 2. How do you decalcify the same same product? Thank you for your help

Hello Dolls36,

I understand you have two questions the lever question I assume you are taking about the steam lever. The second question is how do you descale the unit.

Lets answer the first question first. The steam lever is not a lever but a knob. The knob is located on the right side of the unit.
1. Put container under steam tube turn knob downward to open until you get steam
2. Once you get steam turn knob upward to close
3. Put item you want to steam under steam tube and open valve back up to steam

Now to answer the question about how to descale the Incanto De Leluxe. When you are ready to descale the machine follow these steps.
1. Hold down the "x" button for 5 seconds, the machine will tell you it is ready to descale
2. Remove the filter
3. Fill the water tank with your descaling solution
4. Insert a container under the steam tube and open the steam valve
5. The machine will display descaling and finished
6. Then it will prompt you to fill tank with clean water for rinsing.
7. Press the "x" button once tank is full
8. Place container under steam tub and turn knob to open steam tube
9. When finished press "x" button one more time to confirm done
10. Replace water filter and fill tank

I hope that I have answer you question as for question 1 I assumed that is what you were asking about. However, if that was not the right question please post back to this tread and I will be more than happy to answer the question that you specify.

Thank you for choosing

Have a Delta band saw 28-245 and looking for an owner manual on-line if possible. George

Here's a link to a parts diagram and list at Delta. Unfortunately, no manual online there.
Look through the list here and maybe there's something you can use instead.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

"add water" error message.

problem solved! the float in the water tank has a magnet in it that the main unit senses. the previous owner cleaned the tank before shipping and installed the sensor upside down. if you disassemble the water tank, it is very easy to install the float incorrectly.

If it was 1/2 full, and is now 1/8 full, that means 3/8ths was removed. So 3/8ths of a tank = 420 gallons.

Divide by 3, and you get 1/8th = 140 gallons.

Multiply by 8, and you get 1120 gallons total capacity of the tank.
