Lowering valve is sticking. It has to be energized and opened to lower. Usually on the cylinder, check it for voltage. If it has voltage and does not open, it should be replaced

Lowering valve is in the end of cylinder where the emergency lowering cable attaches. The solenoid has to open to lower. If it has voltage, replace the valve.
