If the 1022 is a contractor’s saw like the Delta 34-444, it might lock the same way. In that saw, if you turn the knob in the middle of the crank that tilts the blade, that’s what locks it. However, if the worm gear is clean and free of sawdust, the tilt should not shift much.

My guess is if you use a toothbrush to clean the sawdust out of the gears, it will help. Make sure to go over the entire range of motion, and everywhere you can reach. Apply some furniture wax while you’re at it to lubricate the gears without providing a sticky surface to hold sawdust.
