    If you still have problem a couple things to look for, UNPLUG saw are the inner and outer flanges on correctly? Is the spacer behind the flange, check the position of blade in reference to upper guard. It should be close to center try these first

Look around on the saw. There's probably a safety button that keeps it locked down when not in use. You may have to hold down on the handle of the saw while pushing the button to release it. Check out here: mitersawbuzz.com Best Miter Saw Reviews Real Man Miter Saw

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

How do I replace the blade guard on a Dewalt DC390K saw


Remove the clip behind the back blade flange holding it on to the housing and lift it up of the return spring, replace the opposite way remembering to relocate the return spring. Make sure you get the model number correct as the 390 and 390k are different.

Change blade Makita LS1030 10-Inch Compound Miter saw


There is an 8mm bolt on the front of the guard. Loosen/remove this and the central guard mount will drop slightly. Behind the metal guard is a slide lock for the blade spindle. Push the lock bar and turn the blade untill it catches and is held solid. Then remove the blade fixing bolt and bobs your uncle. Alternativly, with all mitre saws, you can just pop an old bit of wood on the work base and then use the spannrer/allen key supplied to turn the blade so it bites into the wood as if you are trying to cut it. This will hold the blade steady and you will also be turning the bolt in the right direction.

I have a DeWalt miter saw. It has begun making a loud scraping noise when I release the handle. Any idea what this might be?


It could be a bearing starting to fail. Take the blade off to make sure there is nothing stuck behind it and then see if it is still making the grinding noise. Could also be a bent guard catching on the blade.

HOW DO i UNLOCK MY MITER SAW TO LIFT THE BLADE AND ARM


If all you are trying to do is get the blade arm up so you can use the saw in the first place: Press down a bit on the entire blade arm and that will allow you to pull the locking pin to the out position -- the pin is on the left side toward the rear, smallish, and shiny silver in color... you should be able to reach out to the pin with the left hand while pressing down with the right hand.

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.
