is this the gts10xc? if so, the riving knife can be removed. if you're doing trench cuts as I do often, I tend to remove the riving knife on some machines, the riving knife should drop down in line with the blade at it''s highest tooth point to centre of blade, if it's above it when dropped down it may be debris, give it a good clean out, if you can remove the knife, clean the holes of the knife, also the pins locating it.

I have the GTS18v-216 and the knife can be fiddly, I also have a temporary metabo and that can be a headache to set up.
