My Arcosteel kitchen scales will no longer turn on

My (expensive) arcosteel kitchen scales no longer turn on. I've checked the battery (It's OK). Any ideas on how to fix?

Hi @wom_bat ,

Just a suggestion.

How old are the scales?

Don't know about Arcosteel but other makers offer up to a 10 -15 year warranty on their scales

Check the warranty statement (usually in the User guide) for your product as Arcosteel doesn't seem to mention it on their website. Neither the scales or any warranty information.

There's a five year warranty that expired last year.

In the meantime, I've pulled the thing partly apart, and replaced the on-off switch which was stuck open-circuit.

This is a hard gadget to get apart. However, removing the three posidrive screws (one under a `warranty void if removed' sticker) allows prying the case apart enough to get at the on-off switch. It's a fairly common 3mm square button switch; I replaced it, and the scales work again.
