Likewise, why does my circular saw get stuck?
If your hand is asserting a sideways pressure that will cause binding and the saw will stop. Even a slight sideways pressure combined with dirty/dull blade will cause stoppage. When I first starting using my circular saw, 80% of the time I forgot to adjust the depth of cut, making it work harder than it needed to.
Also, why is my circular saw not cutting straight? If you are struggling with the circular saw to cut straight line on the wood, at first, look at your workpiece. So, if you find out that your saw is okay and the problem is with your unstable wooden piece, just have a set of hold down clamp. It will lay hold on the workpiece with the table to make it stable.

Why does my circular saw burn the wood?
A Dull or Dirty Saw Blade Might Be the Culprit Pushing the stock through the saw too slowly is a common cause of saw blade burn. Sometimes a blade that feels dull might only be dirty. If wood pitch resins build up behind the teeth of the blade, the cutting speed will slow down, increasing the chances for burns.
