If your new Ohaus Defender shows “Err 8.2”, you have probably not yet removed the shipping spacers. These protect your scale from damage during transport, but have to be taken out before use.
1. Remove the stainless stainless steel platform pan. You’ll see 4 red plastic shipping spacers wedged between the overload protection screws and the upper frame of the platform:
2. Remove these spacers by hand or with an adequate tool (without turning the overload protection screws):
3. Place the stainless steel pan on the platform. Your scale is ready to weigh.

wonderfull solution.thank you!!!!
My spacers were removed however my scale still shows this error after a year of usage. IS there a way to find out what is causing it?
Err 8.2 means “Weight reading below «Power On Zero» limit.” The service manual says you should add a load to the scale or reset this limit by calibrating the scale (if you have the necessary calibration weights).
