Scale shows incorrect weight

Scale shows incorrect weight

Place a weight of around 40kg in the centre of the scale, note the reading, then move the weight to the four individual corners.

Are the weight readings for the corners the same to within +/-0.2 kg? If yes, recalibrate the scales. If no, check the corner showing the lowest weight for mechanical binds. Check the motor power cable is free and not causing a mechanical bind as it passes from the scale section to the non-weighing section. If the problem still exists, open a support ticket for further assistance.
