One side of the blade has an angle much higher than the 30 degree setting, you have to grind that down if you want to sharpen at 15 degrees. It will take a long time with the medium stones as in likely hundreds to thousands of passes.
You can :
-get a more coarse abrasive
-switch to the 40 degree setting
-tough it out on the 30 degree setting with the medium rods until it gets sharp (long time)
