You didn't find the sections titled "Adjusting Depth of Groove" and "Fine
Adjustment" on page 7 to be useful?
Look again, specifically at those two sections -- particularly Figure 3 --
and also at Figure 12 on page 10. If you're cutting #20 slots with the turret
set at 10 or 0, the depth stop rod isn't hitting the stops on the turret that
it's supposed to hit. The rod is either maladjusted, broken, or missing.

This should be straight forward simple. The turret is suppose to be stopped
by an adjustment screw when you plunge. This screw is mounted on the motor
housing plunge section directly behind the turret. That adjustment screw
should engage the turret at the different indexing positions on the back end
of the turret.
Perhaps the screw is missing.
Take it apart and check the spring behind the depth guage.
Mine shifted over the plastic and left it all the way open.
(#20) It will also help you understand how it works and
what to look for the next time it screws up. And it will.
