Question about Craftsman Saws
Have you tried to lubricate it? Some times a shot of WD40) will do the trick. The threads get dry and dirty as well a little rusty. if you have an air compressor I would also blow all around the area to blow the dirt out.

Is the blade secure on the arbor, or is the motor itself bogging down?
If the motor is bogging down, make sure you let it come up to speed before making your cut...then let the blade do the cutting, instead of forcing it through the material. Also be sure the material is securely resting against the fence and the base of the saw, so as not to pinch in the middle of a cut.
Make sure you have a good power supply to the motor, and not a long skinny extension cord or the like.
I guess it's possible, if the saw is older or has been under heavy use, that the brushes are worn out and need replacing, but it's also possible the motor is just worn out. (Altho I have rarely if ever seen this occur.)
If you rule out operator error and power source, and the brushes are good, and of course the blade is sharp and clean, the I guess the motor must be at fault, and should be checked at a local service center.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Sounds like the wood your cutting through is to hard for your battery powered saw....try one with a cord they work much better, especially for hardwood's.

Did you fully charge both batteries before using them the first time? If not then they may not be able to hold a charge. It sounds to me like the batteries are either dead or defective as obviously the saw now doesn't have the juice to cut the board. If it's still under warranty take it back and get a replacement. Also, how powerful are the batteries? Even an 18V saw will struggle sometimes cutting a 2x4, they just don't have that much power. The plywood is easier to cut obviously.
