So bottom line: Saw broken?

If you can do your own repairs it might be worth looking at, the parts are available. Sometimes a seised bearing can spin in the housing making the saw trash anyway.

are you sure the blade isn't installed backwards ? Remember that a circular saw cuts on the upstroke ( for want of a better word ) If the blade is put on backwards, it will still cut but hard and slow, you also can knock off the carbide teeth, and if not carbide, burn the teeth, as well as knock it out of balance
