Issue with New Jet Drill Press...

I recently purchased a 16.5" jet drill press. I got to the end of the assembly and I noticed that the arbor would not go down fully into the chuck. Upon putting the arbor and chuck into the spindle, I turned it on and had a large wobble in the chuck. The bearing seems fine, but as I look into the open end of the chuck, I can see that the arbor hasn't reached the mating surface that it should meet. I took the machine back, got another and had the same problem. Any suggestions?
