The switch is bad or the upper control board is malfunctioning. You would have to have a meter to test the switch or a good switch to replace it with to test it. If the switch tests ok replace the upper control board.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I have a meter but don't know which wires to test across or how it should read. I was hoping to jump the switch altogether; the safety key is a stupid pain in the butt.
Exercise Equipment Technician: treadmilltech, Technician replied 8 years ago
I am not sure off hand what the wire colors are but I would have to advise against jumpering out the switch. There should be 2 wires off of the switch itself with the key out it should show an open circuit and with it in the circuit should be closed. If the switch is a flush mount on the board you still may have to replace the upper control board. If it is a separate micro-switch then you can replace the switch.
