SOURCE: How do i know battery is dead

the scales may have a malfuction to it, perhaps wherever you brought it may have dropped it and put it on the shelve anyway and also you may want to see if it has a reset button that may reset it and if none of that works if you havent had it long and still have the receipt take it back to where you got it and if you dont have it just get an exchange. hope ive helped in some way, let me know and good luck!

SOURCE: Body Fat Reading Changing Drastically

The fact of matter is those devices are inacurate for some reason more so on smaller females. But if you recently took a bath or drank water it will alter the results, they suggest taking it first thing before bath or eating in the morning at same time everyday to get a more acurate reading.

This may be getting personal but implants will also affect the reading making it totally useless for you to use. I have them and the electrical impedence devices read me much higher then what i am, a few minutes later will read me lower.

I would head down to your gym most of them will do a free body fat test with the calipers which is more acurate (as long as they know what they are doing).

SOURCE: My scale adds anywhere from

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.

Are you talking 31 "Stone"? If so, I believe that comes out to 434lbs. You are lucky if your scales can read that high. For testing purposes, remove your shoes or more if you think your right at the upper limit. Or let a slightly lighter friend try it. I assume your talking "Stone" as used in the UK. Are you from there? (I,m in the US, in Florida.) Also, there should be a switch on the bottom of the scale (upper left corner) allowing you to switch between lbs, st and kg. You can try that as well, although the limit should be basically identical. If you tell me more, I can help you more.
(By the way, I weigh 197 lbs right now, that's 14 stone.)

My scale shows that i weigh about 30 pounds lighter than i do.

If this is showing your weight, how do you know how much you actually weigh?
Also, you should be testing on a flat, SOLID surface (bathroom tile works well).

Can get burners to light but there is no presser.cleaned and blew out all parts, replaced regulator with no luck. what should i try next

Try turning off the tank, disconnecting it, then reconnecting it. Then very slowly turn the gas tank back on. Also make sure your tank isn't almost empty! The empty weight of your tank is stamped on the collar as T.W. (tare weight). 1 gal of propane weighs 4.25 lbs. Put it on a bathroom scale and see if it weighs less than the tare weight + 4.25 lbs. Let me know if that solves it. If not, we'll dig deeper. Douglas

Charmglow propane patio heater class iiia2 25000 to 40000 btu;s pilot won't light

Ok, let's get the easy to check things out of the way first.

1) Is the tank empty? Take it out and weigh it on a bathroom scale. Most empty tanks weigh approx 18 lbs. The TW (tare weight) of your cylinder is stamped on the collar. If it weighs within a few lbs of your tare weight, then you simply need to refill it. Propane weighs 4.25 lbs/gal, so it would weigh approx 22 lbs with 1 gal of gas left.

2) Did you turn the tank valve on too fast? Close the tank valve, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the tank valve back on. Try lighting the pilot and see if that helped. If not, try #3.

3) Your pilot orifice is dirty or has a spider web. Grab a can of compressed air (like you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the dust or web from the pilot assembly, which is where you light the pilot flame. Try lighting it and see if that solves it.

One of these 3 tricks should fix it. Douglas

The weight jumps around. If I get off the scale and on again, the weight changes by 5 pounds. I am sure neither weight is correct.

You're only suppose to weigh yourself once a week. Make sure you're doing it after you've gone to the bathroom in the morning and with no clothes on. Other than that, I'd make sure the floor you set the scale on is level and that you are holding very still while weighing.

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

I have lost my instructions for my Salter glass bathroom scales 9103. I have a EE on the digital mode what does this mean and what can I do to fix it so the correct weight shows

The scales display EE as they are reading a negative weight.

With the scales switched OFF place 2 glass plates on the scales and press ON.

The scales should now display 0g.

If this doesn't work add more weight and try again.

There is also 4 screws on the underside of the scales which hold the weighing bar in place, if you loosen the 2 smaller screws this should relieve some of the stress so less weight is needed to zero the scales.
