Question about Craftsman 10" Table Saw
If I understood correctly, you started using your husband's table saw and while ripping boards, you managed to stall out the blade AND motor?! If that's the case, you probably have a very dull blade and are binding your board on the blade. Neither is safe and it sounds like trouble is brewing.
First and foremost, get someone to show you how to safely and properly use and adjust the saw if you are new to wood working and power tools. That saw is capable of turning your lumber into a high speed missal if you do things improperly.
It also sounds like you tried installing a new 10" saw blade. Changing the blade requires 2 wrenches. One to hold the arbor and one to tighten the nut. The blade itself should rest on the arbor between two large washers. Also make sure you install the blade so the front face of the cutter teeth face you and rotate toward you. Make sure the saw is unplugged when changing the blade and never turn on your saw with a loose blade.

you need to grab the blade with something.maybe some pliers(if you are not going to refurbish blade) and loosen the nut in the center of the blade. i think it is a left hand thread(cw to loosen) because of the rotation of the blade. if the nut is on the left when looking from the front it is probably left handed. make sure it's unplugged and wear leather gloves so you don't get cut. install in reverse...

SOURCE: I have a 10'' table saw
If it cuts straight it's fine. It's likely just some play in the bearings. I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts to cut not so straight...

Testimonial: "thanks, I thought I was going to need to spend money for repairs. "
Maybe it's under-wired?
When you start it up, if the lights dim, and the saw takes 2 or 3 seconds to come up to speed, then your wire is definitely too small and/or too long. 14 gage wire is almost always too light, although a very short 14 gage extension cord plugged into a circuit wired with 12 gage is OK. The cord on the saw itself is probably 14 gage.

Could be the motor burned out. That shouln't happen and if it did craftsman is really good at replacing damaged tools. I'd return it for a replacement.

The nut is binding on the arbor because the threads are buggered up or clogged with something. It could be the nut (which is probably brass and soft) or the arbor (which is steel). If it got a little cross threaded, the damage will be on the nut. It might be the arbor if the arbor took a whack. Once you have it apart you should be able to see it - although the damage might be pretty small. You aren't likely to have a tap and die to run through the threads, but you can probably fix it with a little rotary tool (like a dremel) using a small disc. If it is the arbor you can use a triangular file. Or you can buy a new nut. I hope this helps.
