    maybe u should try using the strength from your wrist more... thus making your smashes steeper.....

    you're probably not using forearm pronation

    Probably timing issue - try to consciously tell yourself to contact the bird more in front of you (and higher). The racket face angle would naturally give you a steeper smash.

    this deosnt work for everyone depending on how they smash, but try following through the whole way with your arm swing motion.

    That was a correct decision.Try to move behind shuttle as fast as possible, you will have your smash steeper

    My advice is to get a coach , and practice the shot until you are happy with it. None of us here can help you without seeing you in action and standing right beside you. It would be helpful if the members on here could make a video to demonstrate the technique , otherwise it is just words

    Try getting further behind the shuttle, and leaving the "zip" phase of the swing till later (but getting your feet behind the shot is more important).

    What I notice from many self taught players that learnt with a long grip tend to be somewhat panhandle. The problem with panhandle is that you don't get to learn the proper use of the forearm. The other thing with using a correct grip is that you learn to manipulate the racket face angle and can adjust depending on the contact point with the shuttle.

    Default it's your timing

    When you clear you usually want to try to hit it at a 11 o'clock position. If you want a more steeper smash, you have to imagine hitting it at a 10 o'clock position. Basically, just change your hitting angle

    Point of contact between the shuttlecock n racket face should at least be 11 o'clock position, viewing sideway. For high clear could be at 12 o'clock or even 1 o'clock (if you are a bit late in yr footwork/reaction). You have to use yr wrist for really steep smashes. Watch Lin Dan or Fu Hai Feng's slow motion.

    grip
    position of the body
    not enough wrist pronation
    timing
    arm extension (reaching the highest point)
    mishitting
    footwork (not getting behind the bird)

    all these and more can be the cause
    as mentioned by other bc-ers, best bet is to get a coach to correct you or post a video and hope for the best
