Unplug the saw and take the covers off the wheels. See if any of them show excessive end play or deflections when gently racking them from side to side. You may need to shim the wheels. Ideally, you want them all to track in the same plane, and you can check this with a straightedge.
There should be a tracking thumbscrew locked with a wing nut or some such on the back of the upper wheel. Put the blade on so it rides in the center of the tire, (move the guides out of the way if need be until you get the blade to track correctly), and turn the wheel by hand to see how the blade rides. That way you can make adjustments before it pops all the way off. By moving the bolt on the back of that upper wheel in or out you adjust the pitch of that wheel and change the way the blade tracks...
After you get the blade tracking smoothly under tension, you can move the guides back into position to support your blade during cuts.

SOURCE: blade popping off front wheel
Is the axle tight? Has the tool been dropped to warp the frame? But a quick fix if everything else is OK is to loosen up the axle and put a THIN metal shim on the backside of the axle and then tightening it back down.
