Probably a worn bearing. The only other thing that I have seen cause this is a bent spindle. This would usually occour if the machine has had an impact or if the blade has been suddenly jammed against a nail or something in the work that has caused it to jam and/or jump up.
A good indicator for bearing wear is to see how much play is in the blade in an up/down and side to side movement (unplug saw, safety first).
To check spindle, remove blade and run machine without the flanges etc on. Rest a scredriver gently on the shaft as it spins and see if you notice any (uniform) vibration.

Does the switch not have color words on the back of it? They used to. Go to Dewaltservicenet.com and look up your model number and type number. Wiring diagrams will be found there. Lemme know. Please rate me

Relace the switch.
I am presuming the lock button has not been inadvertently pressed ... Check that first.
The condition you deacrive is dangerous. Please fix it before you use it any more.
If you require additional assistance, let me know.
Otherwise, check RepairClonic.com for parts and technnical instruction from their crack crew.
Thanks for the opportunity to lend you a hand

Mastercraft's help line is 1-800-689-9928. However this saw is no longer in production and parts are available only until stock is depleted. It was supplied by an european company called WMH Tool Group that apparently doesn't supply CTC any longer.
