Push the lever all the way to the floor. Pull it up without
pressing the button, until it goes one click past where it was before (you should hear/feel the click). THEN press the button while pushing down.
If the service tech over-applied the lever, you will have to pull up farther than you think the lever will go. But trust me, it will go. You can't apply enough force with just your arms to break the lever.
