mitre saw kick back


ok I don't exactly know how I did this but was cutting a 4x4 and got almost to the bottom and the saw kicked back and thought no biggy but when I pulled the trigger it was obvious something was rubbing metal to metal so took the blade off and put it back on and tightened the center bolt real tight plugged er in and pulled the trigger same noise so repeated the steps again but this time noticed that the spindle that holds the blade has slop and after putting the blade back on noticed that I could push and pull the blade and feel the play so what are my options is this fixable or do I need an expert to look at it

Thanx
Robin

You've obviously got a serious runout problem with the shaft or the bearing that will need to be fixed by the tool manufacturer's service center.
