Question about Hitachi Saws
I have a Bosch, and I am not really familiar with your model Hitachi. However, I do know that most compound miter saws have a locking pin that clicks in at frequently used settings like 90 and 45. This pin must be released (pulled out) before the bevel can be changed.

Hi, The legs on the stand should have leveling pads on it. at the bottom of each stand legs, there is a hole which the pad goes in. you can adjust the pad by unloosening the top nut. put a level on the saw base and adjust the pad up or down to level your stand.
If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

Yes spark in motor compartment is normal. You only need to worry if you see a lot of sparks flying out of the motor compartment! Most power tools will spark inside the motor compartment (particularly if carbon brushes are used).
Bevel and miter could be off... Consult your manual for how to adjust these correctly, but usually the bevel has a 0-degree setting screw or adjustment, and the miter adjustment on the saw is usually done by altering the fence position... Again check your manual for specifics on your saw.

It is left hand thread and if the lock won't hold what you can try is put a 2x4 on the table and pull the head down against the wood and with a good socket and ratchet loosen it that way.. remember to tighten to loosen
