It will be one of three things: #1 faulty Wax/Lift circuit board that controls the lift motor,#2 the motor itself, or #3 a faulty home switch, which is the white plastic switch in the base of the machine which senses the home position or zero degrees elevation.

My 9500 next generation treadmill elevation not working

Usually its the display panel not sending the proper signal - look under the display panel on the left side if standing on the belt, there is an access opening and there will be 3 plugs or connectors, it is the smaller 2 prong connector, just unplug and replug to clear the connection, that usually fixes mine, while in there unplug and replug all 3 plugs just to be safe.
