Question about Metabo Saws
Here we go. I looked online for this saw, and it looks to me like most others. First, be sure you blade is not stretched from over-tightening or worn out. Either of those can cause your problem. Then, take your blade off and visually align the wheels , or even figure out a way to measure the wheels to see if they align. Then install the blade and turn it by hand to see if it is tracking true. You may need to do this for a while. One it turns true by hand (make the adjustments of the top wheel to cause it to be straight), then you will need to set the guides to support the blade in it's correct position. The should be guides above and below the table, probably both behind the blade and to the sides of the blade. As many as 6 adjustments, on some machines.
Usually the guides should barely touch the blade to hold it true.

SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off
I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

I have the same problem and am having no luck in finding replacement parts. Did you have any luck find the part?

the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.

Do you still need the manual? I have that model (now broken) with manual. I can copy it for you (just a few pages in English).
