Q:

Circular saw blade keeps rotating even after I turn it off

A:

The model number of the saw would be a good start - How long have you had the saw? - Do you have an Owners Manual?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

In order to provide any assistance, we will need to have the model number of the saw. You also mentioned you tried tightening the blade so I must assume the blade is not freewheeling on the motor shaft after the motor and shaft comes to a stop.  Depending on the type of motor and if it has any type of breaking, it could have a faulty motor or on/off switch. 

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post along with the model number of the saw.

Not all Circular Saws are equipped with an electric brake - - - Page 6 Item 6 of the Owners Manual --- 6. ALWAYS make sure that the lower guard Is covering the blade BEFORE placing the saw down on a work bench or floor. - - - An unprotected moving blade will cause the saw to walk backwards, cutting whatever is in its path. - - - Make note of the time it takes for the blade to stop spinning after the switch is released.

Ashwini: Thank you for the model number. Based on the model, this circular saw does not have any type of breaking system. It has blade guard that should swing down and cover the blade. You must wait for the blade to stop moving after releasing the trigger and before removing the saw from the material being cut. Lift the saw up and the blade guard should close over the blade. This is explained in the Owner's Manual. Again, the blade is not going to stop as soon as you release the trigger, it will take a little time for the blade to coast to a stop.
