From your description I cannot say for certain, but it sounds as though you are not locking the blade correctly, or the blade lock mechanism is broken. You can tell if the blade-lock is working by clicking it. It should make an audible "click" that you can feel. Also, you can pull on the blade ( with the saw UN-plugged of course!) and feel if it is properly seated. If you are operating the blade-lock according to the instructions and it still doesn't lock positively, see a service center before you use the tool again. A broken blade-lock could be dangerous.

Pull up the knob on the front at the top of the machine and push the yellow bit forward. Theoretically you should turn the knob anticlockwise three turns but it doesn't seem to make any difference on my one. Then take hold of the blade, ease it forward and turn through 90 degrees. You should then be able to pull it out. Replacement is, as they say in all the best manuals, a simple reversal of the procedure. When you are turning the knob clockwise this time it's supposed to click in place but my one doesn't do this and still seems to work.
Best of luck

YOu can download the user manual in the following links
The blade can be replaced by unscrewing the screw found on the shaft.

In the handle directly over the blade is a deep hole. You insert a long thin bladed screw driver into this hole all the way down. Twist slowly and it will locate with a screw. Undo the screw and then twist the remaining piece of blade 90 deg and pull. Replace new blade in the opposite way. Twist it so that the cut is to the front and then tighten up the screw. Do not tip up the unit while doing this as the screw might drop out and you might loose it
