Hello there, The calibration mode for a nordictrack is as follows.
With the safety key out, hold the stop and speed up arrow at the same time while inserting the key. Release the buttons. You will then be in diagnostics.
You then press the stop button one time.
If you are trying to calibrate the incline you just need to hit the incline up button and the machine will do an incline calibration. The unit should go all the way to the top and return to the bottom when completed.
If you need to calibrate the speed you will need to press and hold the speed up button on the console until the display reads 85. The machine should then be running at its maximum speed (either 10 or 12 mph depending on the unit)
The display will show a speed on the console and should be within .3 of the maximum speed.
If it is not then it will need to be adjusted using a potentiometer on the control pwb.
To access the control pwb open the hood cover. Should be 3 screws in the rear of the cover and 2 screws on the bottom of the unit.
Once inside the cover locate the control pwb. On the control pwb there will be a yellow/orange potentiometer. This is the adjusting part.
Use a non-metallic phillips head screw driver to adjust the potentiometer either clockwise for faster or counterclockwise for slower.
Hope this helps!
Good Luck! Tim

Testimonial: "Although I haven't attempted this solution, but it makes perfect sense and will attempt it as soon as I get back to the treadmill - Thank you"
My wife had the same problem with her treadmill. I turned the beast on it's side, and unscrewed the plastic casing that houses the motor, computer, and all the electronics to the treadmill. I unplugged the incline/decline motor. Then on the bottom of the treadmill the long threaded rod that causes the incline needed to be moved. So I unbolted it from the catch, and manually screwed the rod back in with a wrench. Now the treadmill works fantastically, of course the incline/decline mechanism has been disabled, but I would rather have a treadmill with the incline disabled than have one always on 100% incline. Hope you found this helpful :)

I can't help with the manual. But, if you reach under the area where the readout is, push up on the cord or any of the opening underneath the display will pop out. You should be able to find the battery compartment. The unit uses 2 AA batteries. If you find a manual, let me know.

I have the same unit. First, remove the hood. Then, the motor has an adjustment screw on the belt side of the motor. Loosen the nut a little, adjust the motor up or down to make the belt as tight as you can by hand, then re-tighten the nut. This always fixes mine.

SOURCE: Is it possible to operate
First thing I'd try is just using any magnet. I'm sure that's all the key is normally. If that doesn't work, no you cannot use a treadmill without a key. It's a safety measure created by the company.
Here's the key for sale on amazon that goes to your treadmill.
Hope this helped!

o The Nordic Track C2050 allows users to change the incline of the treadmill with a simple touch of a button. This treadmill features both increase and decrease buttons for the incline. The incline of the machine will change by .5 percent every time the buttons are pressed. With each press on the incline buttons, the machine will take a moment to actually reach the incline setting that was just selected.
Capacity of Weight
o Users who are larger than or weigh more than the average person will be pleased with the added capacity of weight that the Nordic Track C2050 allows. Unlike most treadmills in its economy class that only allow a weight limit of 200 to 250 pounds, this model lets users who weigh as much as 300 pounds use the machine safely. Larger people can get the benefits of a cardiovascular workout on this treadmill without worrying about damaging it.
Heart Rate Measurement
o This Nordic Track model allows users to measure their heart rate. All the machine requires is for users to place their feet on its foot rails and grasp the metal contacts with their hands. The Nordic Track C2050 then works to determine your pulse, and the symbol of a heart will eventually show up in the display. After a couple of dashes show up, your heart rate will be displayed. Users who want to be certain of getting an accurate reading should ensure their hands are clean when gripping the metal contacts.
sincerely. God bless you.
