Question about Health & Beauty

I just purchased a Healthometer Weight & Body Fat Monitoring Scale. I successfully setting up my scale, I think? When I turn the scale on and weight for the 0.0 to appear, I get on the scale and it turns off automatically in about 10 seconds without indicating my current weight. I need help.

    I just tried your suggestion and it didn't work. I got on the scale about ten times and was very careful to place my barefeet on the sensor pads and I didn't move. Could my problem be an incorrect setup? How do I start the setup from scratch?

    Thanks Muebe,

    I believe that I have a defective scale. Just to let you know that this body fat scale with sensors doesn't work for all people. People with heavy callous skin on their feet.

These scales use sensors to measure the electrical resistance of the human body to calculate body fat. If you are not stepping on the scale barefoot then that might be the reason why it is timing out. These scales require you to step on it barefoot so it can take a measurement through your feet. And using the height and gender information in combonation with the resistance measurement it can calculate your approximate body fat precentage. If you are stepping on the scale barefoot then make sure that your feet are properly placed into the sensors and avoid any movement. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Set-up should be pretty straight forward. Mine you have to input the numbers each time you want to weigh in for body fat(Male or Female,Height) then step on the scale. It will then take your weight and then use that to calculate the body fat. It is possible that your scale is defective.

I keep getting e on scale dont know what i did wrong setting it up Model bfm884dqn-60 it is for 4 users height of 5 3 1/2 is displayed pls HELP Thanks


I think that those numbers are for the spacing of the feet? I'm not sure what that number is, but anyway you have to push select 3 times and it will save and then the scale will zero out. After that you can push one of the four buttons and program you height/age/gender. I think they really made this scale kind of user difficult.

I have a healthometer model bfm884dqn-60 and i have already set the height the first time. how do i change it?


Took me a minute or two to figure this out. You hold the number of the user that you want to change (1-4) and then, while holding it down, you press and hold the 'select' button. The screen will blink, and after holding both down for a few seconds, a flashing 'Erase' message will appear. Select YES, and then you can enter new information.
