when i ran the zero. The spindle moved down but did not stop when it touch the plate. have to hit the page up for it to go back up.
been using a piece of paper to zero.

On the last page of the mach screen you can view the inputs. Touch the plate to a good ground while watchine the inputs. Sometimes older routers don't ground through them after lots of running. If the input works as shown on the screen, I would suspect the router is not passing ground. You can replace the router or use a ground wire clip on the bit if that is the case.
