Still cannot tell what make and model....I need that to be able to tell. In any case you can buy it online....just search for the safety key for your make and model.

SOURCE: can you get power to a treadmill without the

Hello there. Yes you actually can use a magnet. (thats all the safety key is) It will need to be strong enough to make the switch inside the console activate. I use one from a telescoping magnet used for picking up small screws (available at the big box stores) when I dont have one on service calls.
Just to let you know a refrigerator magnet will not be strong enough!
Good Luck! Tim

SOURCE: I lost my safety key

I just found out I had lost my key too. I have a Merit 710T. I called the company and they directed me to their website.

http://store.horizonfitness.com/c-33-safety-keys.aspx

On the page there is a link to a chart which will tell you what key is right for your model. They are cheap, only @ $13. Not sure about S&H though. I've also heard that if the key is a magnet you MIGHT be able to use another magnet to complete the circuit. I'm going to try this when I get home to tide me over till I get my next check and order a new key.

What is the safty key


the SAFETY key attaches to the console of the treadmill usually by a magnet and is linked to the users clothing so if they fall they pull the safety key off and the treadmill automatically stops. The treadmill will not work without the safety key in place

Two lines appear on the console screen and incline starts going up, then when key is removed all lights go on but nothing works.


I assume you are talking about the safety key. It should have a string attached to it and a clip on the other end of the key's string.

The key is a safety feature and the key should be in the control panel and the clip attached to your shorts or shirt when you are using the treadmill. If you fall of the treadmill, the clip pulls the string and the key is pulled from the panel on the treadmill. This should stop the treadmill instantly by cutting main power to the unit. Main power is shut off because the key is a safety device and it MUST work every time. To help avoid design errors or unreliable stops when the key is pulled, a good designer will shut everything off, not just the motor for the tread belt. I would say your unit was designed by a good design team since everthing goes off when the key is pulled.

From my point of view, it is working as designed unless you are talking about a different key.

I know someone who did not wear their safety key and they slipped on the treadmill, the treadmill threw them into the wall behind the unit and they were stuck with their leg against the treadmill. The belt on the treadmill wore their skin down to the bone on their knee in only a few seconds. Lesson one, keep your treadmill at least 3 feet from the wall. Lesson 2, use the safety key and clip.

Is it possible to operate a Nordic track A2550 treadmill without the key? If so, how?


First thing I'd try is just using any magnet. I'm sure that's all the key is normally. If that doesn't work, no you cannot use a treadmill without a key. It's a safety measure created by the company.
Here's the key for sale on amazon that goes to your treadmill.

Hope this helped!

I have a Weslo Candence treadmill and I too lost my safetly key and I recently folded up a leftover valentine's card from my child's kit box and to my surprise it worked. I just folded to the size of the key and inserted and the treadmill started up with no problem. YEAH!

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. www.AtlantaFitnessRepair.com
