I got a Vario-W last week.  great grinder and love how easy it is to grind by weight.  i have had one small issue that has been a pain the butt and want to see if it is something i am doing wrong, an issue with machine, or a typical issue other people have.

i find it very difficult to Tare the weight to zero.   the machine is very finicky.  if i hit the tare button, it will show 0.7g or something around there.  if i go to push the button, just the pressue of my finger changes the weight to 2+ grams.  i have to very finely adjust the location of the tray to get it to zero.  sometimes this can take multiple attempts and is quite a pain in the butt.

am i doing something wrong?  anyone else have this issue??

make sure that the catcher is not against the back of the machine. It should be 'floating.'

Thanks brianl...I was having the same problem and it was fixed or at least not as annoying once I did not have the catcher all the way in the machine and floating like you suggested.  That little sucker is sensitive.
