CNC cutting Problem

I am trying to run my first project with

CNC cutting NYC and consistently find the machine cutting too deep. I am using 1/2? MDF (12.5mm) and I use the manual controls to get to the origin of the workpiece. I send the gcode command “g92 x0 y0 z0” to reset the origin and I run my gcode program generated from “image-to-gcode” (utility included in LinuxCNC). I looked at the generated gcode and see the minimum Z depth is -7.0mm but when I run the program, the machine seems to want to go right through the workpiece (just keeps cutting deeper and deeper). It is as if it is using machine coordinates (when the controller is powered on) rather than the reset origin. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance.
