    Or you doing this while it is holding something up?
    It will do that if there is no load on it.
    However if it is doing that while holding a load you have a problem I don't have the remedy for.
    Recap. With a load on the jack you will have to jack it down, until the load is released at which time the jack will slide all the way to the bottom quickly.

    Put a load on it and it'll hold. If you have it set to lower and there's no load, it'll drop to the bottom.

    Likewise, if you have it set to raise up with no load you can lift the jack part and it'll slide up until it hits something and will hold there.

    As designed.
