Why My Digital Scale Won’t Weigh

I have a digital kitchen food scale. Seems to work fine except when I try to use it with my gold pan. It seems to show different weights depending on how full the pan is, even w/ the same item in the pan each time. Also, if I set it down on something metal or glass, it registers that weight on the scale, and then when I try to pick it up again, the scale registers the weight of the metal/glass object as well.

The digital scale won’t weigh

A digital kitchen food scale is a handy tool to have in your kitchen, but it will not weigh your gold pan. The scale weighs the weight of something else, such as a metal object or glass, that is close enough to pick up its signal. Digital scales require calibration before use and most have a zero-out function that allows you to zero out the scale for accurate results. If the zero-out feature does not work properly, the scale may need to be replaced.

The article does not mention how to calibrate a digital kitchen food scale. To calibrate a digital kitchen food scale, you must first determine its weight. Place an object of known weight on the scale and note its reading. Next, subtract the known weight from the reading to find the weight of the unknown object. A cloth measuring tape can be used to measure the weight of an object within a larger object, such as a gold pan. Simply place the smaller object on top of the larger object and read its weight from the scale.

Next, find the calibration point on your kitchen digital food scale by pressing and holding it until “0” appears on the screen. Then, place the unknown object of weight on top of the scale’s calibration point and push “ON/ZERO” to zero out the scale. The display should read 0 even though there is an object on it.

Finally, place your gold pan on the scale with nothing inside it. If you are weighing something light, such as a coin, you may need to wait at least three seconds for the scales’ reading to stabilize. If weighing something heavy, such as your jig, you may only need to wait one or two seconds for an accurate reading.

What are the reasons that your scale won’t weigh?

Scales are a necessity in the kitchen. But, unfortunately, for some people, it’s not always a necessity to have a scale. For a lot of people, scales are the bane of their existence. Weighing scales are a pain. Why? Because when they don’t work, you’re stuck without a weight measurement.

The thing is, you can fix the majority of scale problems with a bit of troubleshooting and by fiddling with a few buttons, dials, and switches on the machine. What’s even better is that most of the most common reasons your scale isn’t weighing are super simple to fix.

What went wrong with my digital scale?

I’m a big fan of digital scales because they’re much more accurate than their counterparts. But I recently found out that some digital scales may not be as accurate as you think. I bought the Taylor Precision Products Digital Scale, Model No. TPR-1200, to weigh my medication, but it did not weigh what I put on it. I put it on the scale and expected it to weigh the same as the package, but it did not. I wrote to Taylor Precision Products to find out what was wrong with my scale and this is what they said:

Why did my digital scale weigh something?

If your digital scale weighs something, you may be wondering what the **** is going on. Well, the truth may shock you. Digital scales work by using an electric current to measure the force of attraction between the object being weighed and the earth. The same thing that causes your digital scale to not work right is the same thing that is causing the earth to pull you down towards it. Gravity. The reason your digital scale weighs something is because a gravitational force is pulling it down.

Note: Digital kitchen food scales weigh in both ounces and grams. If the scale has a “GR” button, you can press it once to change the readings from ounces to grams and vice versa.

One potential solution to this issue is to calibrate your digital kitchen food scale. To do this, first determine its weight by placing an object of known weight on the scale and noting its reading. Next, subtract the known weight from the reading to find the weight of the unknown object. A cloth measuring tape can be used to measure the weight of an object within a larger object, such as a gold pan. Simply place the smaller object on top of the larger object and read its weight from the scale.

How to test a scale with coins

Next, find the calibration point on your kitchen digital food scale by pressing and holding it until “0” appears on the screen. Then, place the unknown object of weight on top of the scale’s calibration point and push “ON/ZERO” to zero out the scale. The display should read 0 even though there is an object on it.

Finally, place your gold pan on the scale with nothing inside it. If you are weighing something light, such as a coin, you may need to wait at least three seconds for the scales‘ reading to stabilize. If weighing something heavy, such as your jig, you may only need to wait one or two seconds for an accurate reading.

Now one can pick up gold pan without it registering weight of object on scale. One can also use cloth measuring tape to measure the weight of an object within a larger object, such as a gold pan. Simply place the smaller object on top of the larger object and read its weight from digital kitchen food scale.
