Question about Seca 700KG Balance Beam Scale With Wheels, 220 Kg Max

2 Answers

Balance beam wants to stick at about 300 lbs. not smooth moving

Do we need to be greasing or oiling something. When a person of 300 lbs. gets on the scale, something feels like it is rubbing and doesn't want to give a true weight. Also I can't seem to find a manual for the seca 700 on the website. Am I crazy? Thanks

Checked the bottom of the scale to see if all loops are in place in the four corners. if they are in place load the scale with a body weight the heavier will be better and the look in between the platform and the frame see if there is room. if the platform is rubbing the frame the scale is worn out. chipper to buy a new one.

I contacted the manufacturer and here is there reply.

No need for oiling or grease, but tip the scale on its side, and look
under the base. There will be four "connection points" where pivot pins
connect to the linkage assembly; see if any of those pins or linkage
points are bent or look different from the other ones.

Then, note down the serial number of the scale located on the side of
the base, or behind the column of the scale at the top or bottom of the
column, and call our Maryland repair center at 800-542-7322 ext. 111 and
speak with Tyson Long from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Maryland time to describe
the issue and for further troubleshooting over the phone.

I have attached our new catalogue in PDF format as well. FYI: The model
703 is a very popular, extremely heavy-duty, high-capacity digital
column scale that is a popular alternative to the mechanical physician
scales in the gym and schools environment.

UP TO HOW MANY POUNDS CAN BE MEASURE IN THIS SCALE


I don't know specifically for this model, but for most like this, 300 or 330lbs is typical. To test a working scale for its max capacity, let a heavier friend try it or carefully hold a weight in each hand and stand very still when its a digital scale. A gallon plastic milk container weighs about 9lbs, so one in each hand,even if filled with water will give you an extra 18 lbs of testing room. You can also let the heavier friend or other person hold the weights to help you test the upper limits.

get out the operation manual and look in the index or glossary for the "calibration" routine. it is a failry simple process of recalibration. As these units age the solid state components inside chage a little bit. it needs to be reset, that's all

I dropped the box holding my Ohaus ruby series scale and now it only shows E. Is there a reset button or anything I can do to resolve this issue?


Sorry there is no reet button. Make sure the battery contacts are still making good contact. If so try to calibrate the balance. If that does not work the balance should be replaced.

For the Health-o-meter physician's beam scale, how do you know when it is in balance? What should you do to get it in balance?


For any scale you need to have a known weight to calibrate the scale. Try using something like a 5lb bag of flour or 10lb bag of potatoes.

On the top of the scale set the scale to whatever known weight you have on the platform and see if it agrees, if it is just slightly off, then use the adjustment screw to fine tune the scale, it will be at the end of the left side of the arm.

there should be a dial on the sides to zero it out. if it doesnt, then it has something to do on the actual scale. does it have a menu or settings option? you should be able to zero it out.

My health o meter doctor's scales model 230 will not balance at zero


Hi. Cldchasr is talking about an electronic scale, not your beam scale. Coachphil was helpful but inaccurate for this model. I have a 230. Use Coach's method but there is no screw on the left to adjust. Instead, use the black zero balance at the upper left. Move the black slide on the silver bar until the scale balances.

New Scale out of box will not weigh correctly


Take a 5 pound bag of sugar, flour or what have you. Put it on the scale. If it is off, turn the scale so that you can check every possible place for an adjustment. Adjust and go for it!!! Good luck...Lee

Need a manual to find out how to set the scales back to pounds


I'm afraid I can't tell you how to re-set your scales, but these days the UK is part of Europe, and like it or not, we all need to get used to thinking in kilos (and, for that matter, in metres instead of yards).

1 kilo = 2.2 lbs. So all you need to do is to take the kilo figure and multiply it by 2.2 to get your weight in lbs. So if, for example, your scales show 60 kilos, multiply that by 2.2 and you get 132 lbs.
