What model of saw are you using? BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER CORD. There is usually a brake that you push in to lock the motor, it is usually located between the upper blade guard and the handle, on the motor. It should be spring loaded, push it in and hold it in the loosen the nut on the blade, counter clockwise CCW, righty tighty, lefty loosey.
If you still cannot find a brake, put a screwdriver into the curved part of a tooth behind the carbide tip and 90 degrees to the blade near the front of the lower blade guard. It should be below the main shoe (plate that the saw sits on while cutting). When you turn the nut CCW, the screwdriver will lock the blade against the main show and the blade nut may then be loosened and the motor shaft should not spin.
If all this fails, read the instructions and look there for a brake lock.

SOURCE: Compound Mitre Saw Motor turning, spindle isnt.

I have went to 3 different sites and cannot find the model number listed on them, I did look at a Ryobi saw and they indicate it is an assembly. but before I did that I would try and removing the gear from the spindle. It is possible that when it spun it put a burr in the parts and you would have to use a little extra effort to remove them I would suggest going to a repair shop and having them press them apart and see what you canfind that way. Sorry I couldn't find more for you

SOURCE: blade stops spinning

It most likely is the gears that are bad. Usually it sounds real bad first and you can hear the grinding gears. Sometimes spindles snap. You might have a hard time buying parts for Craftsman stuff. And often times it might not be worth it. First take the blade and flanges off. Around the spindle there should be screws holding the spindle hub onto the body. Un screw that and take a look inside. (There might be a retaining ring holding that on too)

If you can see broken gears or metal shavings inside, then you'll need new gears. Always replace the two gears that run together as a set. And of course replace the grease so you don't have metal shavings in there.

SOURCE: The blade on my Mac Allister circular saw spins on the spindle when not powered. It appears the spindle nut doesn't tighten on to the blade enough. Should there be a washer either side of the blad

Yes, there must be a washer between the blade and the nut. On many saws this washer has a D-shaped hole to match a flat spot on the shaft. The back-side of this washer usually has a recess so that when the bolt or nut is tightened down it presses down on the saw blade, not the end of the shaft. Sometimes these washers are of the beveled spring type. Good luck!

Northern Tool 10" compound miter saw. How do I change the blade?


remove the power cord from the socket in the wall first
if there is a small hole in the blade , place a phillips screw driver in that hole and turn until the driver is locked against the depth guard
use the correct size spanner /socket and undo the spindle nut holding the blade on
if there is no hole ,then place the screw driver in the teeth of the blade to lock it

the motor will spin so that the teeth cut against the direction of cut ( up into the guard or up through the depth guard ( blades normally have a arrow for rotation direction)
tighten the spindle nut and if no hole in the blade use a hammer and hit the spanner with a hard rap

Loss of power when blades engaded.


Remove deck belt from blade pulleys and Tri to spin blades by hand. If they don't spin freely, you probably need new spindle bearings but if you do need a new spindle I would replace the whole spindle housing... Just make sure the one (s) you buy has housing, spindle, bearings, nut and washer.

Disc removal


The button does not disengage the blade, it only locks the blade/motor from spinning so you can remove the locking nut. Lock the spindle/motor/ blade, from moving and then remove the locking nut or disk. Should be counter-clockwise.

Need to change the spindles on model 917.273220 craftsman tractor


The job is much easier and safer with compressed air and an impact. I would try really hard to find someone with air to borrow but if no air is available then wedge a piece of 4x4 between the blade and deck to keep the blade from spinning. BEWARE, the board can pop out and the spinning blade can be dangerous. Remove the deck from the unit. Remove the pulley first, hold the blade with your hand ( only if you have air/ impact) to prevent the spindle from spinning. Note the washer under the pulley. Then remove the blade, then the spindle bolts. Most AYP replacement spindles now come pretapped but if not place spindle in a vice and use one of the old spindle bolts ( they are self tapping) to make threads in the mounting holes. Then mount the new spindle in reverse order being sure to instal the washer between the spindle housing and the pulley. Again hold the blade with one hand and securely tighten the pulley nut with an impact. Also the unit probably has a blade brake arm and the spring holder is mounted by one of the spindle mounting bolts. Pay attention to its positioning before removal. If you have a heavy duty replacement spindle the notch on the bracket may not fit the new spindle. with a file or grinding wheel enlarge the notch on the bracket to fit.

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?


With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

Can't find my owners manual. How do I change the blade. Bolt hits on a guard that covers the arbor. On a DW713 combination saw.


Removing the Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Raise the arm to the upper position and raise the lower guard as far as possible.
3. Loosen, but do not remove guard bracket screw until the bracket can be raised far
enough to access the blade screw. Lower guard will remain raised due to the position
of the guard bracket screw.
4. Depress the spindle lock button (Fig. 3) while carefully rotating the saw blade by hand
until the lock engages
5. Keeping the button depressed, use the other hand and
the wrench provided to loosen the blade screw. (Turn
clockwise, left-hand threads.)
6. Remove the blade screw, outer blade clamp, and
blade. The inner blade clamp may be left on the
spindle.
Installing a Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. With the arm raised, the lower guard held open and the
guard bracket, place the blade on the spindle against
the inner blade clamp with the teeth at the bottom of
the blade pointing toward the back of the saw.
3. Assemble the outer blade clamp onto the spindle.
4. Install the blade screw and, engaging the spindle lock,
tighten the screw firmly with wrench provided. (Turn
counterclockwise, left-hand threads.)
5. Return the guard bracket to its original position and
firmly tighten the guard bracket screw to hold bracket
in place.
WARNING:
• The guard bracket must be returned
to its original position and the
screw tightened before activating
the saw.
• Failure to do so may allow the guard
to contact the spinning saw blade
resulting in damage to the saw and
severe personal injury

Blade won't spin


Check the blade with it off the base and make sure that it spins freely. Check the spindle on the base and see if it feels hard to turn. If the spindle turns too easy , then the connection inside the base is broken and needs replacing.
