RL1050 Handle on down stroke goes to far down

On my RL1050 when I go to pull handle on down stoke it hits the bottom of stroke and then goes 1 inch further. The top of press hits the shell plate nut and the handle is still on down stroke.

How can I get my RL1050 press handle to go to the correct down stroke point and then back up. If I judge it I can get perfect strokes but I usually push the handle down till it stops and then let it return back up. That causes the handle to go 1 inch past stop point.

If I look below press I could put piece of wood on bottom to stop the down stroke and return back up. What would you say is the problem? Do I need ot send it in for repairs or can I do something here at my house.
