Thank you for purchasing the American Weigh
SHIP-330 digital shipping scale. Please read all operating
instructions carefully before use. Scales are precision
measuring devices and should always be handled with
proper care. To ensure years of reliable service, keep these
simple tips in mind:

Do not exceed the scale’s maximum capacity.
Overloading your scale can permanently damage it!
Avoid exposure to extreme heat or cold. Scales
perform best at normal room temperature. If
temperatures have changed dramatically, calibration
and adjustment may be necessary.
Allow your scale to warm up for 30-60 seconds before
performing calibration and adjustment(if available).
Store your scale in a clean, dry location. Dust, dirt,
and moisture can accumulate on the weighing
sensors and electronics causing inaccuracy or
malfunction.
Avoid using your scale in close proximity to strong
radio wave emitting devices such as computers, cash
registers, and cordless phones.
Always weigh on a flat and level surface, free from
vibrations and drafts. The corner of a room is usually
the most stable.
Gently apply all items to be weighed. Do not drop
items onto the weighing platform.
Avoid dropping your scale. The warranty does not
cover damage due to rough treatment or overload.
Check the batteries first if you are having any trouble
with your scale. This simple step can remedy most
scale issues.
Do not disassemble your scale. This product contains
no user serviceable parts.

platform.
2. Press the TARE key once. The display will then
reset to zero. If the container is removed, it’s weight
will be displayed as a negative number.
3. You may now fill the container with the quantity to
be weighed. The display will show the net weight of
the contents.
4. To return to normal weight display (gross weight),
remove any items from the weighing platform and
press the TARE key again to re-zero the scale.
