Camera not working?

I have just recently bought a Canon EOS 4000D and when i try to refocus a video when it is already recording it just can't do it and only if i'm in manual focusing mode does the camera enable me to readjust the focus.
Is there something wrong with it or is it meant to work this way?
PS: I was using an EF-S 18-55mm DCIII kit lens, is it the problem?

See page 163 and 174 of your manual.

There is no problem with your camera. Unlike more advanced cameras, the 4000D does not have contuinuos AF during video shooting.

"There is no problem with your camera. Unlike more advanced cameras, the 4000D does not have contuinuos AF during video shooting. "

 

OP said he was trying to refocus, I assume via shutter button.

 

That camera will do that if that feature is enabled.
