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.

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.

Im wondering if there is supposed to be a big magnet on my safety key for my eks treadmill because i went away for the weekend and had house sitters in and i returned to turn my treadmill on and its not...


Shannon-

Yes, EKS uses a magnet in the safety key for their treadmills. You may be able to find replacement magnet at your local hardware store. A dab of glue and you're all set. There are also a numerous online retailers that will sell a replacement EKS safety key. A google search will reveal a number of options.
