what model and year? and what is preventing you from measuring it?
switch off the machine and better still unplug it as well from power (positive insulation)
retract the bit till is flash with with the table slide or below, crank it till it is flush with surface. that is your zero point, crank it now till installed cutting blade is fully extended, measure exposed bit - that is your maximum cutting (effective) depth, never, ever use your cutter on maximum depth on single go, you will burn the blade, most probably destroy the piece and lucky if not burn the motor...
if your exposed blade high is greater than 25mm (1") on single or two blades cut in two or better three stages, if you have three or four blades and machine will support that power, you cut that then in single bit
do not overheat bits, it is better to plunge slowly and retract to allow waste removal than in single go destroy bit and material...
I have the same router and the same thing happened to me. I had to take it in and get a new switch put in it. The tech told me that mine was under warranty and it did not cost me anything for the repair.
Hi There my name is Larry Boccioletti from Ontario Canada.
I am a Freud service dealer.
Your problem is in the speed control module located under the cap.
Because it is a sealed unit it is not repairable.
But they are replaceable.If you can let me know the colour of the cap I will let you know which one you need.
They made some changes so the colour is important.

Here's a link to a 43-370 HD shaper manual (13mb), but that's the only one delta seems to have online. (See search results here.) For older machines, you may find something useful here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
This is a common issue with these kits. Some guys put a little shred of paper in the threads as they screw it together.
Try to reach inside the base and grap the knurled ring with a pair of channel locks and you should be able to get sufficient grip on it to tighten it enough to keep it from spinning loose.
If it still works loose, you could put a little rubber cement or Spray adhesive on just a bit of the threads, let it dry, and then screw it together. It will be harder to undo, but should keep it from vibrating off.
Finally, if you have a lot of work to do with the template guides, try to make a point to check it occasionally. In this way, you are more likely to catch it before it comes loose enough to do any damage. I don't believe it could spin off all the way, but it can loosen to the extent that your work is damaged.
I hope this helps in some respect.
