Ironman 150t (Keys Fitness)

by John
(TX)

I bought this treadmill about a year and a half ago. From the reviews I read, it was built solid and had a decent (not great) reputation for being a well built treadmill. I have used it on and off for about a total of six months since I purchased it. It had one of the best warranties in the industry. 10 years on the motor, 1 year on all other parts, lifetime on frame.


After a few months, I realized it was time to get back into my workout routine. One morning while cruising along at about 4.2 mph, it just stopped. I almost fell off.

After trying to contact the manufacturer(Keys Fitness), I found out they went bankrupt. So, to further troubleshoot the thing, I pulled the cover off to look at the motor. I found out that the motor was shot and was sparking inside.

I found the manufacturer of the motor, contacted them, they say they no longer make this motor, no longer stock this motor and do not sell to the public. Hmm, so much for the ten year warranty?!

Very upset customer!

Seemed like a heavy duty, well built machine. Very heavy. Numerous problems, #1 noisy, squeeky deck. Key's fitness (before bankruptcy) suggested spraying silicone spray around all 8 rubber deck bumpers. At approx. 1,000 miles, rubber bumpers disintegrated. #2 motor would stop abruptly, Key's fitness had me dismantle lower control unit. When elevated to 10 degrees, negative wire for the motor became tight and eventually became loose. #3 motor began slowing and speeding up. Motor eventually stopped with a burning smell. Called Key's Fitness, message said bankrupt. They would order me a new motor for $299.00 + shipping and handling and it was on back order for over a month. No guarantee. So much for the lifetime motor warranty. I can't believe Keys is still listed on various treadmill websites.
