Question about Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill
My treadmill had stopped with the deck raised too. I had to pull the wires to the motor to drive the deck back down, then turned the unit off. My motor has three wires going to it, Up, Common, and Down. To lower my deck I disconnected the Up and Down wires. Then I connected the Down wire to the Up plug on the control board. Thereby when the control board told the motor to go up it went down.
After lowering the deck my fix was to lubricate the treadmill deck using a kit from a famous Sporting Goods store. Then the unit passed calibration and its been running well since. I had never lubricated the deck and track. I couldn't tell by rotating the treadmill tread that it needed lubrication. Nor could I tell a difference after lubricating the tread.
Why the machine raised the deck and wouldn't lower it because the tread needed to be lubricated is a mystery. I think in my case I obtained a speed error, probably due to a little too much drag from the tread. Then failing calibration for speed must have corrupted the up/down calibration. Then turning on the unit caused it to raise the deck and not allow me to lower it.
Please be careful if you are rewiring your motor to lower the deck. Unplug the unit first. Make your changes, then plug it back in. Then unplug the unit to return the wiring to its original position. When the Up wire is disconnected make certain that it does not short out or touch anything. It might be safer to connect the Up wire to the Down command, ie switch Up and Down as suggested by Art. (On my machine Up is Red, Common is White, and Down is Black, so Art's suggestion of switching Red and Black would be correct.)
If rewiring your up signal to drive the motor down works, then your motor is okay and there most likely is an issue with the down circuit. Or you are lucky and just have to lubricate your deck/tread, then recalibrate as I did. Good Luck.

I would check the main wiring harness, from the motor board to the console. Check the connection where the main frame connects inside the right upright bar. Remove the triangle shaped plastic cover bolt and side it up the upright bar. You will see the harness. Pull it through the acess hole the check the connection.Make sure all connections are tight.inclines motors rarely fail. To get it down you can reverse the red and black wires from the incline motor to the motor controller. Then run the calibration, once it's down just pull the safety key. It could be the display board or MCB
