To change the regular blade on the DW321 type 1, unplug the power tool. To remove the blade, pull the knob on the top of the jigsaw up about 1/4". Rotate the knob counterclockwise until the clamp opens. Do not force the knob after it stops. Insert the blade making sure that the back edge of the blade fits into the support roller. Rotate the knob clockwise until it clicks and then push it down.
There is a blade release that you have to push up while inserting blade. If this isn't the problem, there are many types of blades for different jigsaws. You need the one for your brand. Take an old blade with you when you purchase. Good luck
Sorry Gavin, but you have posted this solution word for word the same for a number of jigsaws. the KS656PE does not have a knob to pull or turn so you do not know this model and your suggestion is wrong. I cannot advise a correct solution as the advice in the manual is wrong! regards - Mark
well the sawzaw will be drastically different from the jigsaw, but the jigsaw will have either a round twist lock that needs to be turned a little to remove the blade, or two screws that hold a flat plate that clamp the blade. and as for the sawzaw, it will be a twist lock, or a latch lock, the latch lock will look like a lever that needs lifted to remove the blade, and the twist lock is the same as the jigsaw.
On the top of the Makita 4304T is a knob, (Top/Front) This is the blade Installing Lever.
Viewing the jigsaw in the direction you would use it, the Installing Lever is turned towards the Right. Keeping it turned, you then install the jigsaw blade. Once you have the blade up in the Blade Holder, gently release the Installing Lever.
