The problem is either in the lower control board or the lift motor. I would start by replacing the lift motor. Then if that does not fix it, replace the lower control board.

Technically, the Incline Trainer and the treadmill are two different type of machines. The incline trainer raises much higher so the card that is designed for the treadmill will not work on the incline trainer unfortunately.

Unplug unit remove motor shroud then start calibration procedure.
Press the Stop and the Speed Up keys down while inserting the safety key. If you cannot get into calibration then upper console needs to be replaced.
Press the Stop key one time. The Time window should read EP:2P. Some newer models may also say FP, Pass, or the like. This means that it passes the EPROM test. At this point if it show 2F FF or Fail then upper console needs to be replaced.
Press either incline key and the incline will calibrate automatically
BE CAREFUL, THE TREADMILL WILL RUN AT FULL SPEED IN THIS NEXT MODE! DO NOT STAND ON WALKING BELT.
Press the Speed Up key and hold it down until 85 is shown in the Distance window (some models may show the 85 number in another window).
If the top speed of the treadmill does not match the displayed speed on the computer console, adjust the max speed potentiometer (pot) on the motor control board. This is the board that the red and black motor wires connect directly into in the motor area. The Max Speed pot is clearly labeled.
The max speed potentiometer is a small square with a mobile center and is located in one corner of the board and is labeled MAX SPD. It is near the harness that carries the speed signal labeled H,W,L. Using a small insulated screwdriver adjust this potentiometer clockwise to speed up and counter-clockwise to slow down the max speed of the treadmill. A tiny turn of this potentiometer will make a big difference in speed so be careful when making adjustments.
It is not important to get the speed set exactly at the max speed of the treadmill but do make sure to get the speed within .2 MPH of the max speed of the treadmill. For instance if the max speed of the treadmill is 10 MPH, make sure to have the speed set between 9.8 MPH and 10.2 MPH. Some models have a 12 MPH top speed, so please check your manual if you aren’t sure.
After completing calibration of the speed, press the Speed Down key. The treadmill will automatically return to 0 MPH. Please allow the unit to stop completely before continuing.
Press the Stop key once and remove the safety key.

SOURCE: When standing on treadmill, if incline # ie:5 is entered, bed raises, pauses, then lowers back down while #5 continues to be indicated. this occurs with all incline #s but not a problem if I'm not sta
If your incline is not working it can be a few different things.
1)There may not be any signal from the console which could be a damaged cable tight the flexible cable vs keypanel( spray too with contact cleaner spray) vs display board.
2) the console itself has failed :tigh the connector comming to lower board (main motor controller board).
3)The motor control board may have failed from a worn treadmill belt and deck(exchange it) Test if the Voltage with DVOM is there present 120VAC
4) the motor may have burnt out Test the motor with 120VAC.
5)also a potentiometer geared to the motor so the console knows what height the incline is at ADJUST IT.
6) the gearing can slip, giving the console false information which can cause chassis damage FAULTY.
Now with the block diagram you will have strong resultant for determine what is wrong. This I did for people like you, and to know how the main motor board controls functions by 90% aprox of any treadmills. sincerely.
