Hate to say it but being low on fluid should not cause the motor to settle.
More than likely you have some internal valves leaking by.
Are you sure the manual release is closed off completely?
Low fluid level would mean you have a leak to the outside through seals, and would not let it raise all the way or foam up by mixing air with fluid.
have you seen a leak or any signs of a leak?
