Question about Home
I don't have the manual so I don't know how to calibrate it. I suppose you'd have to press some kind of sequence with the power button, apart from that I've no idea. It doesn't have a mode button like most kitchen scales, which is used to change the metric unit and also to calibrate the scales. Instead this scale changes the metric unit with the power button itself.
On my model, there is a button on the bottom that slides back and forth to choose the wanted setting. My scale is about 5 years old.

Press the Set and Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Release the buttons, the display will flash. Press the Arrow button to cycle through each weight mode until just the mode that you require is displayed. Then press Set. The display screen will flash to confirm your selection and store in memory.
Note: If weight mode is set to pounds or stone-pounds, the height programming mode will be automatically set to feet and inches. Similarly, if kilograms is selected, height will be automatically set to centimeters.

I had already solved this after a lot of playing and research, put I thought I;d post it on here for others as the answer was different for other scales listed here. What I did was press the 'Button 1' and 'Button 2' together for 5 seconds. This powered it up and then the display showed 'Cal' with a number on the screen. I pressed 'Button 1' again and it said 'Zero' and then displayed the numbers '0000'. Then I added 1kg of weight and it said 'Cal1'. Then I added 3kg of weight. It said 'Cal2'. Then I added 5kg of weight. It said 'Cal3', then 'Pass'. It then returned to normal mode and now started weighing correctly. I calibrated the weights (Flour and Sugar packs) on another set of scales first, but they were only a few grammes wrong so would be close enough anyway. I hope that helps!
