12.3.2 Replacing the Load Cell
IMPORTANT: Turn the scale off and unplug the power cord before beginning the following procedure.
After replacing the load cell, it may be necessary to have the scale re-certified. (Refer to local regulations.)
1. Remove the weigh platter.
2. Remove the two screws underneath the scale and
remove the front printer cover.
3. Remove the three screws underneath the scale that
secure the cover.
4. Remove the screw fastening the cover.
Tip the cover forward.
5. Lift the collar on the keyboard cable connector.
Disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove the two weigh platter support screws.

7. Use a soldering iron to remove the load cell cable
from the A/D board.
8. Remove the three socket head bolts (4mm) and
remove the load cell assembly.
Install the new load cell.
9. Use a soldering iron to solder the load cell cable to
the A/D board.
10. Position and fasten the weigh platter support.
(Note: the solid tray support is in the right, operator
side corner).
11. Check four-corner adjustment. Place a weight equal
to scale capacity (30lbs/15kg) plus 10% (3lbs/1.5kg)
on each corner of the weigh platter. If necessary,
rotate each of the four corner adjustment screws
so that they barely make contact with the limit stops
when the weight is loaded.
12. Lift the collar on the keyboard cable conector. Insert
the keyboard cable in to the main board connector.
Push the collar down to secure the cable.
