SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off
I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

SOURCE: Band Saw Blade won't stay on
A lot of the larger band saws, and I don't know about your particular model, has an ajustment on the bottom wheel that tilts the wheel in order to track the blade. It is right at the axle and tilts it from there. If the back guide is a roller bearing I woud think you would want to roll all of the time. If a solid bearing block natually a small space where it will not hit is enough.

cut freehand. A bandsaw blade will always run off to one side or the other, even using a fence.
The rip fence is intended for re-sawing only, and very thin strips
