Hi guys, my FitBit Aria scale sensor had stopped working.
For a while, after every weigh in, I had to keep tapping on it to select myself as a scale user then lift the scale from the ground slightly, to release the pressure on the scale legs, until the scale would settle on my name, otherwise it would keep skipping between all scale users with similar weight without even touching the scale.
It had gotten worse and worse until it would fail with a battery warning, every time it tried to sync the weight to my account, despite the fact that the batteries were brand new.
I’ve followed this video on how to open apart the FitBit Aria scale, and I started to check out the 4 legs to realise clearly 2 of the 4 white plastic discs the scale sits onto, were broken.
Since Fitbit have no spare parts for sale and the scale is out of warranty, it’s pretty much good to go into the rubbish bin.
The scale wasn’t cheap, so I was determined to design the broken part so I can 3D print it in attempt to fix the scale.
I have printed replacements for the 2 broken legs, replaced the originals and voila!
It Worked straight away and the issue went away completely.
kizinfo had mentioned in the product description that after 5 months from installing his and using the scale multiple times a day, they were still going strong. Fingers crossed, mine work just fine for now.
Here is my acknowledgement to his design.
And now, as a small token of appreciation, I’d like to give back to the world a little something and hopefully make someone happy out there.
I’d like to print the broken parts for 20 families at no cost (except postage). (Australia only please, since freight overseas will cost a bit of money and if the parcel gets lost I can not offer any refunds since I’m not selling anything and I don’t want to seem untrustworthy just because the post/courier had misplaced the package.)
Please make sure your scale is out of warranty before opening it up and contact FitBit first. If they can’t help, then come back here and post below your request for 1,2,3,4(max) pieces, and make sure you type in a valid email address so I can contact you back in regards to the shipping details and my PayPal account for the shipping fee.
Please play fair and only post one request per family and only the broken parts.
