    You need to zero xy and z axis after you adjusted the spindle and base.

    There are two possibilities, First one is that your stepper motor is broken. Second is that the thread rod was not inserted into the coupler properly. There are two small screws in the sides of coupler, Look at the picture.Click image for larger version.
