SOURCE: I have a Delta heavy
I have the same saw and love it. There are mounting bolt under the table between the blade and the motor. There not ment to be used for adjusting but there is some play. The way to get the best cut is to adjust the fence to the blade. I have a Bessimer fence that adjusts easily with two allan machine screws the push plastic pads against the arms rail. I get cuts that look like DA with 220 was used. Enjoy the saw and good luck.

Inside the saw, on the end of the trunnion is a stop that is adjustable to zero the saw in to exactly 90 degrees. Either there is sawdust or something accumulated there or it needs to be adjusted. You say you cleaned it out, So you'll need to unplug it an have a look up in there. See how there's a geared piece of steel that moves when you crank the saw over to 45 degrees. Usually there's a bolt or stud with a locking nut on it, either on the trunnion itself or the lower surface of the table top. You need to break the nut loose and screw the bolt in or out to adjust, then crank the saw over to hit it, check for square with a known square, crank it all the way out of the way and readjust, etc. Until you get it right. Make sure to tighten that lock nut when you're done.

Two easy possibilities are that the blade is dull or that the wire is too small. The wire is likely to be a problem if you are using an extension cord. You could move the saw near to an outlet that you know to be wired with 12 gage wire (not 14). Or you could buy as short as possible 12 gage extension cord.
If being underwired is the problem, you will notice that the motor comes up to speed much faster when wired adequately.
You might also buy a cheap new blade to rule out the dull blade problem. If neither of these fixes the problem, then the motor has become "weak" because it has overheated just enough to cause some minor shorts between the windings. (If the shorts are major it won't turn at all and will trip a breaker.) In this case the motor can be rewound, but it will probably be cheaper and easier to just replace the motor.
Good luck, Al K
