There should be some screws on the bottom side of the fence that allow you to make adjustments. Loosen then slightly then set the fence to 90 degrees & then tighten them.

Replace the entire switch assembly, otherwise you will be doing a lot of work and buying individual parts that very well won't be available.

I'm not familiar with your saw, but I'm familiar with table saws in general.
The tilting is achieved by a worm screw on the end of the crank handle engaging a partial worm gear on the tilt mechanism.
If all you get is clicking, the worm is jumping out of the teeth on the worm gear. It's likely that the shaft you're turning has slid a bit in its bearing and the far end of the worm is no longer constrained and no longer holds the worm tightly against the worm gear.
I'd say just take the whole thing apart and re-assemble it. In the process, you'll find out how the worm has slipped out of place and you'll see how to put it back where it belongs so that the worm is supported on both ends.

Have you squared the fence to the blade/table. If the table is true to the blade, your mitre slot should also be. You can then squre your fence to the

Probably a long out of date question but my suggestion is to purchase a link style belt to replace the old hard drive belt that comes with the saw. It'll deliver more power to the blade, run quieter and work better. I also recommend replacing the drive pulleys while you're at it. Get a couple of balance ones.

You can get a link belt at Rockler or other woodworking outlets.

if its cutting in the angle. maybe the teeth on your blade are dull on one side and the blade is pulling material to the side. maybe the fence is ok.

Ok, basic question...is the lock engaged? It is the small knob at the center of the adjustment wheel. Is it possible the screw has been galled?

I believe that that model of Powermatic has a lock for the blade angle that also extends and retracts the casters for moving the saw. You may have unlock or change the handle position to allow for blade angle adjustment. You can get a manual or information at the Powermatic website to show you how to change the settings on the saw. Hope that helps.
