you are unlocking the holding clamp before you attempt to change depth setting, ain'tja???
if you have force turned the depth knob past it's stops you have probably broken the retainer E clip...
if the motor isn't correctly installed into the base's keyways adjustment will be very difficult...
if the locking lever is over adjusted it won't allow the motor to move freely...

Start on page 11 of your owner's manual and make sure the motor is installed correctly in the base...
Make sure the coarse adjustment lever is adjusted correctly...
Center the fine adjustment screw w/o the motor in the base...
if it still turns hard w/o the motor in the base - you tore something up by force turning it...

now reinstall the motor... (page 11)
refer to page 12 for depth setting...


.
I have torn nothing up ,,,,not forced anything ! It is correctly installed !

Hi Flutemaker

Sounds like your router is faulty and should returned for warranty repair.
