I am not sure why you took the guides off in the first place,   That is definitely related to the problem but is it possible that taking those guides off created a deeper problem?

How can I cut wood 3.5 inches thick with Dewalt Scroll saw?

nope... throat on scroll saw is of fixed height... beside, all scrollsaw blades are of fixed length, i would suggest use of bandsaw with very narrow blade with minimal kerf. do not use pressure on the blade! you will then have same cut through the thickness of the wood! setup bandsaw correctly, do not overtension it - see my other instructables pertaining to the bandsaw and regulation/setup of it

if you find my solution helpful - do not me shy... give some points... :-)

Blade walks off the drive wheels

If the blade is walking off the wheels, the wheels are out of alignment with each other. This can be caused by loose screws that hold wheels on their pulley shaft, a worn or lose pulley shaft, worn or broken bearings, ect. Anything that holds or supports the wheels can be lose or worn to the point the wheels are out of alignment which affects the tracking of the blade.

Bandsaw blades keep popping off,could it be heat related?

Blades slip off the wheels on these saws is because one or both wheels are not turning true to the blade. This can be caused by:
- Missing or worn tires on the wheels. The rubber tires have to be on the wheels and they have to be in good condition.
- Occasionally the screws holding the sprocket on the driven wheel come loose and the wheel will wobble causing the blade to come off.
- Both wheels ride on bearings and shafts that, if seized, worn or broken, will let the wheel wobble enough that the blade won't stay on.
- If the blade is stretched or twisted from use it won't stay on very well.

D28770 dewalt does not turn the blade. Light works and switch works but not even a hum from the motor.

Check the brushes, if they are worn down to where they are not making good contact with the armature, the motor won't work.
If the brushes are OK you may have to have the armature tested to make sure it doesn't have a short in it.

Over-tensioning the blade can and does cause the blade to "crawl" off.
