Ohaus Trooper TR6RS and TR30RS with problems...

I have two Ohaus Troopers.  The TR6RS is showing Error 1, Error 2 and Error 14 and the "bubble" for leveling in the back has no bubble in it  and it no longer works! TR30RS isn't always measuring accurately unless you move what you are measuring into a different position on the scale.  It also can only measure 0.2. 0.4. 0.6 etc. and not the numbers in between and I needed it to be more accurate when I am measuring small sample batches.  I need a scale that can do this and I also need to measure soap batches or 48 bars which weigh about 300 oz.
So, is trying to repair the TR6RS worth my while or not?  It is close to 20 years old but doesn't get used all the time.  I'm looking for any suggestions that you might have to help make the decision!  Thanks!


  • We use Ohaus Troopers and have found them very robust and reliable. And we have a company that services and calibrates them annually. We think this is important.

    If you have someone who can do service and repairs, and are not too expensive, I'd give it a try. From past experience, the issues you have described may be easy to repair, if you know how.
