Thank you for your question on the tension releasing as you are using the saw.

Because of its age I would say that the rubber bushing under the tension knob has lost some of its damping tension.

I would replace that part first to see if it will cure the problem.

Rubber bushing .

You will need to press the pin out of the knob and then remove the washer and replace the rubber bushing under that washer.

Then replace the top washer and reinstall the pin in the knob.

This should fix the issue for you.

When the tension lever is flipped up the whole tension rod moves up and down about 1/2 inch. It has been that way from the first time I used it. I have only used it 3 or 4 times, and It is very frustrating. It feels like something is loose underneath the cover, because it has so much play in it. I probably should have returned it when I realized something was wrong, but is there anything I can do to fix it now?

Thank you for the update. In looking at the parts for the tightener the long rod has threads and I think you may be able to rotate the knob either clockwise or counter clockwise to increase or decrease the tension for quick release. I am not 100% sure but that would seem logical to me for a fine tuning adjustment. I would release the knob and then rotate the knob a couple of turns and then try to relock it to see if there is more tension. I am not sure which direction to turn the knob. Please let me know what you find out. Sam A.
