With the saw unplugged - The blade needs to be locked in place so it will not turn when you put a wrench on the nut located on the left side of the blade that holds the blade on. This is done with a locking pin on the right side of the blade. Push the pin in and rotate the blade by hand until the pin locks into the blade and prevents it from moving. With the pin pushed in put a wrench on the large nut on the left side of the blade and turn it. This may be reversed threaded, so you may have to turn the nut clockwise in order to loosen it. When tightening the nut after replacing the blade, you will have to once again lock the blade with the same pin.
Perhaps this video will help you locate the locking pin.

How to change the blade?


I don't know if this will help you much but I've got a DeWalt 14 inch chop saw and a 10 inch miter saw and they both have a small lever on the right hand side of frame just behind blade If you depress this lever and slowly rotate blade until it drops into place this locks the blade for changing. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

This is common IF the blade clamping nut becomes loose... the blade will free wheel on the arbor after the motor stops. It can tear up the arbor so investigate this possibility immediately.

Either the blade or the guard is out of alignment. You will have to check and find out which one is the culprit.
