SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off
I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

If you are like most people, (from your description you probably are), you might be feeding too fast. I did the same thing, and many other people I know did also. I learned by trial and error, and using scrap, watched from the side as I fed. Sure enough, when that little blade bent just a little too far...SNAP. It is much slower sawing than I imagined, even with the coarsest blade. I learned the best and broke the fewest with spiral blades. I always set the tension by sound. Again, trial and error. Take your sweet time! Have fun!!

It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.
Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.

Go to Dremel.com or call toll free1-800-437-3635 and tech service might be able to get you a schematic and wiring diagram. It does sound as though the switch is either wired incorrectly or put in upside down. If I have helped you on this would you please take the time to rate me accordingly and Thank you
