Just calibrate it dont junk it. But why are you using a drop unit for
that much land, or maybe you are not it is a rotary unit, are you sure
its not rotary, my cheapo scotts rotary does near 4x as much in one
pass as a drop unit, so I walk 75% less. I called scotts to calibrate
mine as it came set to high [ Scotts makes alot more money this way]
Best is calibrate and underfeed always, that "scotts system" of a bag
a season is unessary in my opinion for most. Actualy for many, and me,
lawn treatments are a scam. Best is mulch grass, and mulch leaves and
you are fertilised and done, You still didnt remove the house and
everything else from your sq ft figures.
Time you take out the house, driveway and other non-lawn areas there
won't be enough space left of that lot to get a full head of steam up to
get the rotary to spin and half the product will end up either in the
street, on the neighbor's yard or the driveway.
You could effectively fertilize/seed/whatever that area w/ hand casting
by the time you got the spreader filled.
Well, there ya' go...
1A --> 43,460 sq-ft (5280^2/640) * 0.11 --> 4,360 ft^2 for the entire
lot, less the house, plantings, driveway, etc., etc., etc., ...
That's well over double the suggested rate...

If you're so damned concerned about your lawn the least you could do
is some research on how many square feet are in an acre so you know
how much you should be applying.
You've got two choices:
1. Leave it alone and it will grow back.
2. Dig it all up and start over.
It's up to you. Just be aware that the lawn will green up in a couple
of weeks on its own. If you dig it all up, it will look like hell for
the REST OF THE SUMMER.
Is it possible that you got a product intended for another
part of the country? You might not know because who you purchased it
from may have many locations and the product may have been fine for
the grass types in some areas where they have locations, but not
