Treadmill: Console powers up but the treadmill won't start

Insert the safety key to start the treadmill; without the key, the treadmill powers up but won't start. If your treadmill has a magnetic safety key, place the key over the round area marked with a key icon to start the treadmill.

If the motor won't start with the safety key inserted, the motor, motor controller or console is defective.

These repairs may help solve your Treadmill problem:

Replace the console display
