Safety keys are pretty much required for all treadmills.

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

How To Calibrate the Lift Motor on Quinton ClubTrack Treadmill

The following describes the steps required to calibrate the lift motor on a Stairmaster (Quinton) ClubTrack.
  1. Enter service mode on the treadmill by using the following keys at the same time:
    • Faster - Slower - Stop Belt
  2. Allow the lift motor to free spin by removing the bolts from the metal block on the jack screw.
  3. Press the up arrow on the control panel until the incline is at 5% then press the down arrow and take it back down to 0%. This will allow the lift motor rheostat to find its range.
  4. Spin the metal block on the jackscrew to allow 1 - 1.5 threads to be exposed from the top. Secure the lift motor back to the frame by inserting the 2 bolts through the bracket holes and into the metal block. NOTE: Double check the spacers on each side to make sure they are flush.
  5. Run the treadmill incline up to 15% and check the jackscrew to verify it has not bottomed out before reaching 15%. There should be around 4 - 6 threads exposed. Bring the treadmill back to 0% where there should be the same amount of threads exposed from the top of the jackscrew. If you see the correct amount of threads the lift motor is calibrated.
NOTE: If there is an error on the display panel, ex. E211, you need to manually turn the jackscrew back to 0%. To perform this unscrew the 2 bolts from the bracket securing the metal box and jackscrew allowing it to freespin. Use a shop rag or towel to wrap around the jackscrew to prevent damage to the threads. Using a pair of pliers (channel locks or vice grips recommended) manually turn the jackscrew back to 0%. Once this is accomplished run through the above steps to perform the calibration.

Why does treadmill work without the console key

Do you have another magnetic object around it? That may cause the treadmill to work without the safety key.

PLO5 error message on Quinton Clubtrack treadmill

Try to clear the error message. God bless you

1 )Locate the reset switch on the underside of the treadmill console. Usually the button is large enough to trigger with a pencil eraser or Q-tip. Plug the treadmill plug back into the wall. Use the Q-tip to press the reset button. It may be necessary to hold the reset button down for a few seconds. "CL11" will appear in the display of the treadmill.

  • 2

Press the reset button one more time with the Q-tip. "CL21" should appear on the screen. Press the enter key. The display will change again and show "CL22." Keep pressing the enter key until the numbers cycle through to the number "CL26." Press enter one more time. The letter E should appear on the display screen.

  • 3

Press enter twice more. The letters "SS" should appear on the screen. When this happens, press the start/stop key. Making sure to keep well away from the tread, press enter to start the treadmill. The treadmill will start on its own. The treadmill will stop on its own after a few seconds. When it stops, press the power key two times. Remove the safety key and put in a safe place. Your treadmill is reset

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!
