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.

You can go to ToolPartsDirect.com or eReplacementParts.com
Both sites have a listing and a blow up diagram of your saw. So check there if the part is not on the diagram you may be able to call them and there may be a universal one or the right one available. They were the two most promising sites I could find.
