could be nothing more than some grunge/dust/dirt in the contact for that push / pull pot.  (It sounds like that's what you're set up has)

first thing to do is carefully remove it from the cavity  (don't disconnect) and see if some electronic contact cleaner and a few minutes of rotating the pot all around helps.  (cover the guitar with a towel or something first.)

What Kidblast said - or - somehow the wires got crossed up in the push/pull pot.  The only reason I say this is that usually when you pull the knob up you are tapping or splitting the coils and the sound gets a little thinner (single coil as opposed to both).
