Unpacking and Assembly
When unpacking your Digital Scale, check to make sure that the product is intact and undamaged.
If any parts are missing or broken, please call HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS at: 1-800-444-3353.
Your Digital Scale requires no assembly. It is important that you read the entire manual to become
familiar with the product BEFORE you use the Digital Scale.
Place the Scale in a sheltered area when in use as air movement and breathing on the scale
will affect accuracy. Always place objects on the platform gently.
Installing and Replacing Batteries
1.
Turn the Scale on its side. Remove the battery compartment cover by pressing the tab towards the cover and lifting it off.
2.
Insert four 1.5V “AA” batteries into the battery compartment. Be sure to align batteries with the corresponding polarity.
3.
Replace the battery compartment cover.
Using the Adaptor
Your Digital Scale can also be operated with the AC Adaptor that is included with the Digital Scale.
1.
Connect the Adapter plug to the receptacle located at the rear of the Digital Scale.
2.
Plug the Adapter into the wall outlet. The Digital Scale is ready for operation.
Operation
1.
Place the Digital Scale on a flat surface in the work area.
2.
Press the ON/TARE switch once. The Scale will start operating. When “0” “and” “ 0 ” appear on the digital display, the Scale is ready for weighing.
3.
Gently place the item to be weighed on the platform. The weight will appear on the display.
4.
When weighing substances that must be put into a container (such as powders or liquids), place the empty container on the Scale platform. Press the ON/TARE switch. The digital display will return to zero, eliminating the weight of the container. A “ 0 ” readout will appear in the lower left corner of the display.

Changing Weight Unit
You can change the Digital Scale’s weight unit from “g” (grams) to “oz” (ounces) to “lb” (pounds).
1.
When turning on the Digital Scale, the default weight unit is always “g” (grams).
2.
When there is no item on the platform, the “g” indicator on the upper right corner of the digital display will light on and point to “g”.
3.
Press the MODE switch to change the weight unit from “g” to “oz” or to “lb”.
Examples:
If weighing an item less than 454 grams (such as 387 g) then 387 g will appear in “g” mode. 13.65 oz. will appear when switching to “oz” (or ounce) mode. And .852 lb. will appear when switching to “lb” (or pound) mode.
If weighing an item more than 454 grams (such as 1326 g.) then 1326 g will appear in “g” mode. 46.75 oz. will appear in “oz” mode. And 2.922 lb. will appear in “lb” mode.
Calibrating the Scale
1.
To Calibrate, or balance, the Scale, press the CAL button for three seconds. Once the display shows “CAL”, stop pressing the button.
2.
Press the CAL button again. Place an item that weighs 5.5 lb. (2500 G) on the scale. Press the CAL button again. The display will show “0”. Keep the item on the platform.
3. Place another item weighing 5.5 lb. on the platform. Press the CAL button again. The display will show “ACC”, meaning the Scale is successfully calibrated.
Maintenance
1.
Protect Scale from rough use; it is susceptible to damage from being dropped or other abuse.
2.
Protect the Scale from exposure to water or corrosive materials. It should be kept clean and dry. Occasional cleaning with a clean rag will extend its life and good appearance.
3. Store in a dry location to inhibit rust. Keep out of the reach of children.
4.
To remove the platform for easy cleaning: Rotate the table slightly to align its tabs to the notches on the mount below, and lift the platform free.
