Hi, The reason for a down cutting blade is to see your cut on the finished side of laminates ( which include veneers, plywoods, plastics, formica . When using an upcutting blade on laminates the smooth cut is on the bottom, which you can not see till you are done and turn the work over. Reversing the teeth allows that smooth cut to be on the top. This is usually done on smooth flat surfaces as you have found out and does not work with orbital or tight scrolls. As far as the pushing or pulling, smooth cuts in laminates require the saw doing the work at a speed that allows the teeth to cut and remove material with biting. So if you are biting, (This is a much slower process than pushing your jigsaw through regular wood) check that you are not pushing too hard and that your blade is still sharp. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!

From your description I cannot say for certain, but it sounds as though you are not locking the blade correctly, or the blade lock mechanism is broken. You can tell if the blade-lock is working by clicking it. It should make an audible "click" that you can feel. Also, you can pull on the blade ( with the saw UN-plugged of course!) and feel if it is properly seated. If you are operating the blade-lock according to the instructions and it still doesn't lock positively, see a service center before you use the tool again. A broken blade-lock could be dangerous.

are you using the "T" shank blades and also are you loosening the spindle enough to allow the blade to turn, sometimes you have to push up a little to turn it and also pull away from the roller guide. Let me know and also there is a TINY spring in the top of the spindle that has a nasty habit of breaking and winding around itself not allowing proper operation.

There's an exploded diagram of a similar model here. Don't let it confuse you though. I mention it, because it shows the clamp screw which hold the blade in place (35 on the diagram).
Unplug the saw before you change the blade.
In the handle directly over the blade there is a hole with a clamp screw at the bottom. Use a long thin blade screw driver to loosen the clamp screw.
Once the clamp screw is loosened, twist the blade about 90 deg and you should be able to pull it out (don't cut yourself, by accident)
Put the new blade in with the same orientation and twist so the blades are facing the front of the saw.
Tighten up the clamp screw and you're good to go.
Be careful not to tip your saw over while the screw is loose. If it falls out and you lose it they're a bit of a nuisance to come by.
