Beware of nordic track / icon fitness, these people are professional "rip off artists" and liars. I purchased a 7100r tread mill some years ago, it was delivered badly damaged and I had to fight to get it replaced. It was replaced and serviced 3 times by a authorised nordic track repair service, it has never been right since day one, the speed does not remain steady, the pulse grips give erroneous heart rates, and recently the tread mill ceased worked.
In speaking with nordic track over the past 5 weeks, and every time we called their story changed, it was diagnosed and decided that the speed motor controller board was defective and needed to be replaced. We asked "if the part was in stock" and was responded with, yes it is, "I checked inventory and we have several in stock, your will go out monday via ups" I provided payment via credit card, and then several days later called and decided that because nordic tracks story in the ease of replacement changed every time we spoke to them, I would have a professional install the board.
I called nordic track, and arranged for a service call @ $ 148.00 and then the next day I received a confirmation on the part, it stated "out of stock", I immediately called back and demanded they not charge my credit card, they gave me the typically nordic track song and dance, claimed they would reverse the charges, of which they said they did on the 13th - no such luck, they are a bunch of liars, I checked with visa, no credit issued.
Furthermore, why would you arrange for a service call and charge a customer for service when you dont know when you will be able to provide the part?. I made numerous phone calls, and basically they claimed they couldnt do anything. At this point I also found out that there is a descrepancy with their shipping, apparrantly they use ups to ship to your post office and then the postal office delivers it via your carrier! They told me ups would deliver it, not hoppalong cassidy-by doing so delivery would take longer, and I clearly identified I have a heart condition, exercise on the treamill is crucial to me, and I needed the part right away-
Look at all the other complaints against them, they are unexcusable.
Nordic track famous words, "im sorry"- here"s more information, these people are scam artist, when I provided them with the serial number, they claimed it wasnt on file, they had no information.in past when I called they treated me as though I was a liar. (A) they replaced the 7100r through their service organisation under warranty, and we had to battle with them to get that done (B) the display and pulse grips board was replaced, (C) the speed does not remain consistant (3) service calls were promppted by nordic track warranty repairs, the (Authorised company sent out by nordic track) nordic track claims they have no records of the new treadmill being delivered to me, they also claim they never sent out a authorised warranty service to make repairs.
Guess what! In trying to get my tread mill repaired, I found the people nordic trac sent out to me.! There are records that support everything I claimed-
After receiving numerous promises they would notify me about the part, I received an email yesterday, that the part shipped - again when I called ups to confirm we found out they lied again, they printed a label, the part did not ship. I sent an email asking they escalate the delivery process, they did nothing-
These people are clandestine liars, one bigger than the other. I am very dissapointed that I have to file a complaint like this. I clearly identified that I have a serious heart ailment, and I desperatly needed the treadmill repaired, all they provided me with is a bunch of aggravation and bs-
There are other manufacturers that have much higher regard for their customers than nordic trac has for their customers. I have a nordic track lemon, be very cautious with icon fitness, they have an excuse for everything, and their"key" personell in management are not available to the general public, you either have to send a letter or deal with the liars in customer service, and it is cllear they dont know what their doing.
