Go to and under the service portion select the download manual area and then type in the model number 6232. I haven't heard of the -6 but they have numerous schematics for this tool according to the serial number. If you are looking for a part in particular let me know. I worked for them for 16 years and will try and help. Good luck and if I have helped you would you please rate this solution accordingly and thank you.

The blade won't stay on even though I have it on properly it comes right off when I turn it on

I have no experience of portable bandsaws but do have some experience of workshop bandsaws.

One wheel is generally movable in order to "steer" the blade and careful adjustment is needed with the blade guides retracted until the blade runs full on the wheels. The blade guides are then brought back to prevent the pressure against the work from pushing the blade off the wheels.
