I don't know about Cleveland, but a while ago I replaced the bearing on my Sears Craftsman saw, and it wasn't a hard fix. I would expect any competent repair shop could do the repair easily. If you can get the arbor off and take it to the shop, that would be ideal. It only takes loosening a few bolts to get it off. I first removed the cast iron top from the sheet metal base so I could turn it over, but it can be done from the bottom, too. Just be prepared to eat some sawdust. The most specialized thing the shop would need is a bearing press to get the bearing in and out of its seat, and many shops would have these; they aren't very expensive. Maybe a good machine shop which does small jobs could do it for a small fee. A good place to find these is at your local auto parts store, such as NAPA or O'Riellys (here in MIssouri, anyway, but you get the idea). Your auto repair shop probably knows one or two they use for 'turning' brake drums, etc. BTY, I didn't have a bearing press and I did the job with carefully tapping the bearing back on with a sleeve made from a piece of scrap pipe. Tauton Press makes a great DVD on tuning up your saw after this fix, as you want to make sure
it is square with the table in two dimensions - parallel to the miter saw slots and perpendicular to the top. Good luck.

How did the blade get out of whack? Take the blade all the way up, put a straight edge against the blade, measure to the miter slot front and rear, if it is not the same, you will have to lightly loosen the carriage underneath and bump the thing over one way or the other with a lead hammer. Get it straight, then torque it back up. You should be all set. You can set your fence to the miter slots the same way. lock it down and check it, if it isn't right, adjust the fence, all fence adjust , from the cheapest to the best. Hope this helps.

If you lost the instruction manual go to dewaltservicenet.com and you can download them, but in the meantime there is a lever that removes the guard lift up on it and then towards the back is a slot for the pawls, depress the button on them and insert into the slot making sure they lock replace the guard and make sure everything moving freely up and down movement of the saw and free movement of the other safety devices. Let me know if you need more assistance.
