If you’ve had your scale for a while and it no longer is working, check that it is positioned on a stable, level surface. Using the scale on a location with an uneven floor surface can cause the scale to register an instability error on the display or provide an inaccurate weight. Do not place your scale on a carpet; Taylor digital bathroom scales do not have “carpet feet,” so they cannot provide precise readings on carpeting.
Taylor USAs digital bathroom scales utilize strain gauge technology to provide accurate weight readings, but several factors can affect a scales accuracy and reliability. Whether your scale is new or several years old, it may require troubleshooting from time to time. Understanding how to address common issues such as recalibrating your scale, stabilizing it or replacing its batteries can help you get it back in working order as quickly as possible.
Your digital bathroom scale won’t work properly straight from the box if you don’t initialize it. Because it moves during the shipping process, some of the internal parts must be recalibrated to provide accurate results. Set the scale on a hard surface, such as a wood floor. Place one foot on the scale, using just enough weight for the display to show dashes or zeroes. When the display turns on, remove your foot. Once the scale turns off, step back onto it with both feet to see accurate weight.
If you step on the scale and it doesn’t turn on, you may need to replace the batteries. Taylor digital bathroom scales have a low-battery indicator, so a “lo” or “bat” icon appears on the display when battery power is getting low. Display readings usually become dimmer as well.
Your digital scale may show an error message or an inaccurate reading if the unit is overloaded. Each scale has a maximum weight capacity, so if the user weighs more than the maximum, the scale is unable to provide a weight. If you receive an “EE” error or “Error 2” on the display, you’ve exceeded the maximum weight. Immediately remove the weight or you may do permanent damage to the scale. Most Taylor digital bathroom scales have a maximum-weight capacity between 300 and 400 pounds, but you should consult the instruction booklet to determine what the maximum weight for your particular model is.
Do I have to store the scale flat?
We recommend keeping the scale in the same position at all times, on a flat, hard surface. If you have to store it, the scale parts may shift causing you to have to initialize the scale during your weighing process.
It is highly advisable to place the weighing scale on a fixed location rather than moving it around as you will need to recalibrate it if you move it from one place to another. When you change its batteries, you will need to recalibrate it as well.
Sometimes, the scale would come up with errors. If this keeps on happening, then perhaps it would be best to reset the scale to ensure the correct and precise measurements that Taylor is known for. It is best, too, to understand these error messages. Many people get confused on what the scales say. However, the errors are easy to understand. Check out below what each error means.
So many people make the mistake of just buying a weighing scale and failing to understand how the tool works. To fully utilize a scale, it is best to know how to operate it properly.
Taylor scales are popular because they provide accurate measurements, and are easy to use. Plus, some of their variants can even measure more weight compared to its competitors. The Taylor scales are reliable and even durable as the company has been manufacturing measuring instruments for over a century now. Many people, however, are unsure of how to reset a Taylor scale after buying one. If you are one of those who have questions about using the device, then this article will offer you the information you need.
Measuring the body’s fat as against your lean mass is a good way to know and understand your body and health. Scales that measure body fat have two electrodes situated under each foot, and these electrodes send a low-level electrical current via the body. However, do take note that the electrical current transmitted is a harmless one. The signal goes through the lean mass fast, and on the other hand, the fat slows down the current. As a result, the scale can estimate how much fat is in one’s body as well as what is the percentage of the lean mass.
