You don't mention the brand or model #, so hard to give any specific advice, but could be it needs some oil to loosen it up a bit so it can slide. The curved trunnions under the table where the arbor swings can use some 30wt. motor oil applied with an old fashioned oil can or a spray of wd40 in a pinch. Make sure to unplug the saw before getting in there to lube it. Also lube points where the wheels that raise /lower the blade turn and rub against metal, and any gear-like teeth on the raise lower mechanism where worms gears engage as the saw goes up and down. Probably just stiff from lack of use, unless the lock mechanism is not unlocking.

I couldn't find much online other than discovering Ace Hardware is a retail consortium - a buying group that isn't big on spare parts for the stuff they sell.
If you bought the saw locally you might have more luck approaching the local outlet. Such saws are often bought in from a generic source (often of far eastern origin) and label engineered, consequently there are usually few spares available though many such saws arrive with spare brushes in the box along with a wrench and instructions, etc.

All is not lost as there are companies dotted around the world specialising in motor repairs and making brush sets to order from a drawing or copying a pattern. I bought a such a pair a couple of years ago for a very reasonable cost.

When I bought my table saw I had to take it apart and rebuild it somewhat more sensibly than the Chinese who had thrown it together.

Hello Derek, it seems that your motor or motor brushes have failed please contact the manufacture about replacing the motor brushes.
