Search fFITNESSREPAIRPARTS.COM for a key. Otherwise any "rare erath" strong magnet should be strong enough to set the sensor off.

If I understand correct, the treadmill will not run correct unless you have the safety key in. Well yes this is correct because once the safety key is removed the treadmill will stop. If your treadmill is running extremely fast just by turning it on, you may need a new speed sensor.

SOURCE: My Proform 8.5 personal fitness trainer will no longer work

Hello there, It seems that you have a stuck button or a problem with the ifit card area. Yes I know you probably dont use it but just listen. If you have the demo card for the unit try putting the demo card into the ifit slot and press it in and out a couple of times. This will sometimes correct this problem. If that does not correct it then you will need to replace the console or possibly disconnect the ifit section from the console itself. Either way you will need to remove the console.
If more info is needed please leave me a note here and I will get back to you asap.
Good Luck! Tim

Testimonial: "Tim, Thank you very much for your help. I already had the console apart so I just unplugged the ifit section and it works perfect. Randy"

I would think that it can't hurt anything to try another magnet but if you end up needing to buy another one here is one website that sells them: Sportsart TR20F safety key

1) test the outlet wall with a desklamp, if the lamp turn On THE circuit is o.k otherwise, the problem is fuse blown or c. breaker tripped, reset or replace fuse.
2) test the power cord for open or faulty. with VOM usin continuity
3) test the fuse y/o c.breaker inside of machine and reset or replace.
4) Turn on the machine if the machine keep the same simpton, test the key(magnet) the key is a magnet, test vs your magnet from seal magnet of your refrigerator for atraction or repulsion, if doesnot pass the test replace the magnet from some hardware like home depot.
and PROOF again, can be work. see the block,
Otherwise if the problem keep you must call some tech profesional, maybe you have Main switch open or defective and need replace, or power supply, capacitor, transformer, etc defective. or faulty.

I lost my safety key for crosswalk advanced 525x. How can I turn it on without the key?

1) I do not recommend to do this. because you must bypass the electronic circuit and you can damage many ICS. if you do not have knowledge in electronic digital. Remember the treadmill fitness is very High Tech machine delicated.

2) will be better go to www. go to customer service and then parts & manual and order the parts, the best solution.

Do you have to have key for proform xt70 to use it?

The short answer is Yes , it will not run without the key being in place. The key lanyard clip are designed to shut down the treadmill should the user fall while using the treadmill to help prevent serious injury. The long answer and I would not advise anyone to do this , but it is possible to take the console apart and bypass the safety switch. I would only do this if I did not have a key and wanted to test to see if the machine worked . Some models can be tested with a round magnet in place of the key others need a plastic card trimmed down to fit the slot .
Hope this helps and remember safety first !!
