Gold's Gym 480 Treadmill

I've believed quality has been built into Gold's Gym products until I purchased a Model 480 Treadmill. Assembly takes time but is not difficult and once it ws assembled and running it is a great machine for the price of $377.00 but the problem lies in that after a couple of weeks the machine fails to power up. The chip boards in the console are of poor quality, I've read where this has happened to other machines. Plus I purchased an extended warrenty and when I called the company I was passed on to other departments and no one ever answered my calls for help, now I'm stuck with a machine that does not work and I cannot use my warrenty.

I will never purchase another Gold's Gym, they do not stand by there products.

What a waste - Gold's Gym 480 Treadmill
by: Anonymous

I PURCHASE GOLD'S GYM TRAINER 480 AND AFTER A FEW MONTHS OF GOOD OPERATION , IT BEGAN TO HAVE MULTIPLE PROBLEMS.

SOME OF THE SPEED NUMBERS DID'NT WORK , THE INCLINE WOULD CHANGE POSITIONS , THE SPEED SETTINGS WOULD CHANGE BY IT SELF.

THE WORKOUT SETTINGS DID'NY WORK .

THIS THING JUST GOES NUTS.


I WAS TOLD BY A TECH THAT IT WAS IN DEMO MODE .

I HAVE HAD LESS PROBLEM WITH INEXPENSIVE TREADMILLS.


I WOULD'NT RECOMMEND A GOLD'S TREADMILL TO A CHIPMUNK....IT'S JUNK.

Golds Gym 480
by: bthomashrselvr

I too was fooled by this piece of junk.

I am stuck with a treadmill that doesn't work.

The speed motor will not come on. I have tried everything I can find. Nothing works....

Very disappointed in this product and its reliability. If I could I would drive it to Icons. door step and leave it.

not working
by: Anonymous

Gold's Gym Trainer 480 model is not working. Was having problem with keyboard did trouble shooting like book said to go.

I checked alignment of magnet inside of the machine. It worked for a little while.

Then only the highest settings would work and incline was going up and down by itself. No other functions on keyboard would work.

Tried to align magnet again and now I have nothing happening. Not even any power. I called the number on the manual to see if they can recommend anything else I could try and the guy told me to call Walmart.


Why would I call Walmart store they can not help me??? This was after almost a half an hour of going throught automated options then leaving my phone number so they could call be back.

The guy told me I did not press the right options during automated message???

Then I tried to send email to address on the manual. I did get a response quickly but not one of much use. They did give me another telephone number and some crazy prices for a technician to come out for a repair.

I do have a warranty plan on my treadmill. I just wanted to see if there is any thing else I could try myself before I had to go down the road......
