many times there is saw dust and sap build up and can get on stops and the lead screw that tilts the saw, and some times there could be a small block of wood stuck up in there, from falling through the throat plate, I would suggest a good cleaning and possibly some non sticking lubricant on the moving parts, some times the residue that build up will need to be scraped off or soaked off with paint thiner,
some times presparying the moving parts with WD40 before trying to adjust helps, it soaks in to the residues and if there hit or moved they mosly will break off, or fall off, and it helps lubricate the moving parts,

Thanks, I did the cleaning and there was still a problem. Then I noticed that the shaft for the blade cover was still in place at the back of the saw and was blocking the motor and blade from tilting all the way to 45%. I removed the shaft and that solved the problem. What the heck it was time to give the saw a good cleaning anyway.
