If the Tick Count be same number as max value the scale be weird. In the snap shut below you can see 4 are missing.
This is a consequence of trying to fit nine values (0 to 8) into eight ticks.
Good to hear that you already figured out how to configure it with the correct tick count.
I took the liberty of changing title from "GAUGE ERROR" to "Gauge tick count"
