I have the same lift and the same problem. What happens is the vibration causes the mechanism to slowly lower the router on lifts that have seen a lot of use. Woodtek must have recognized the problem because the newer models have a lock that is operated from above the table. The simplest way to stop the movement is to thread a stop nut on to one of the elevator screws. I 3-D printed a plastic hand wheel with a 14 - 1.25 thread. It adds time to the set up but definitely prevents the movement. Of course you could buy a nut to fit yours and make a wooden hand wheel. I only engage it on long cuts where bit height is critical.
