SOURCE: clamping a blade in the saw
it's either a cylinder behind fence,twist it to open,let go so it close's. or there is a lever on the side that you lift up to insert blade let down to hold in place

I would look at the battery contacts first for burnt/discolored contact, if so clean with something like a pencil eraser, look at the contacts on the tool also. If these are acceptable then I would think a loose wire inside the handle area is causing. Before disassembly hold tool level and GENTLY tap with a soft hammer to see if you can get it to work and that would be a first indication of a bad connection

REMOVE THE BLADE !!!! take the handle apart and lift out the switch. keep track of the lock slide button and how it is installed. unplug the switch wires. carefully touch the wires you just unplugged onto the battery terminals. these wires lead directly to the motor. BEWARE.. if the motor components are good , the saw will run at FULL SPEED. you only need to tap the wires, DO NOT jamb them onto the battery. If the motor runs then most likely the switch is bad. If you know how to use a continuity tester then you can also check the switch. Bad moter likely culprtet is the brushes are crapped out.
