There's a small hole in the blade. Insert a nail or screwdriver through the hole and tutn blade until it stops. Ypu can also use a piece of wood place in one the blade teeth and turned until it stops at the show plate.

SOURCE: blade stops spinning
It most likely is the gears that are bad. Usually it sounds real bad first and you can hear the grinding gears. Sometimes spindles snap. You might have a hard time buying parts for Craftsman stuff. And often times it might not be worth it. First take the blade and flanges off. Around the spindle there should be screws holding the spindle hub onto the body. Un screw that and take a look inside. (There might be a retaining ring holding that on too)
If you can see broken gears or metal shavings inside, then you'll need new gears. Always replace the two gears that run together as a set. And of course replace the grease so you don't have metal shavings in there.
