Top Fathom TF100A Skimmer Setup: Help Needed!

I'm having trouble setting up a TF100A skimmer from Top Fathom.

For some reason, I can't seem to adjust the water level. It doesn't seem to matter how I position the water level control coupling.
Here's a diagram from a similar model:



Could it be that the pump is too powerful? I doubt this because the the pump was used by a previous owner with the skimmer.

What else could I try?

Many thanks,
Jeff
