Inside the saw, on the end of the trunnion is a stop that is adjustable to zero the saw in to exactly 90 degrees. Either there is sawdust or something accumulated there or it needs to be adjusted. You say you cleaned it out, So you'll need to unplug it an have a look up in there. See how there's a geared piece of steel that moves when you crank the saw over to 45 degrees. Usually there's a bolt or stud with a locking nut on it, either on the trunnion itself or the lower surface of the table top. You need to break the nut loose and screw the bolt in or out to adjust, then crank the saw over to hit it, check for square with a known square, crank it all the way out of the way and readjust, etc. Until you get it right. Make sure to tighten that lock nut when you're done.

If your saw still has the original bar and chain, it was supplied with a .325" pitch chain and you'll need a 3/8" round file with a sharpening guide to properly sharpen it.
Here's a link to the Husqvarna site to the Rancher 455 models so you can select the correct manual to download, that matches your particular saw, based on the year of manufacture, etc.
There is some excellent information about maintaining your saw, along with a really good guide with step-by-step instructions for proper sharpening.
If you're having trouble figuring out the right manual for your saw, use the online Customer Support page and they'll reply.
Hope you find this Very Helpful - Best regards!

Hello. First of all adjust your saw on straight cuts so that it is spot on 90 degrees. Then go to the 45 and test it again. Being off a tiny amount at 90 degrees is compounded when you go to 45 degrees.

To adjust the bevel, (blade angle), loosen the black lever at the back of the unit, tilt the blade housing using the handle (this may require a fair bit of force) until the arrow on the scale is at 45 degrees then tighten the black lever.
