If it’s the same base I’m used to, there is a lock nut on the cam lever that locks the base to the motor. That may need adjustment.

Also, be sure to adjust the router upward to the proper setting. If you need to lower it, drop it down below the needed height then bring it back up. There is always backlash in the adjustment mechanism of handheld routers.
