I am not sure I fully understand the problem. It sounds like no matter the position of the fence, the through cut is not complete where the face of the workpiece meets the fence and the table. If I understand that correctly, it sounds like the depth stop and/or maximum depth of cut stop(s) is out of adjustment. If the depth stop or the maximum depth of cut setting keeps the blade from setting far enough below the table, the cut may not be completed.

This diagnosis could be easily tested by making a cut with the test workpiece resting on a piece of scrap wood, thus elevating the test workpiece. If the cut in the elevated test workpiece is a good cut, then I would think the depth stop or maximum depth of cut stop is the source(s) of the problem.

Page 21 of the on-line manual describes how to set the maximum depth of cut on the Kobalt 10” sliding compound mitre saw.

I do not own the saw, but I gave my son this saw as a gift. I have used it and must agree, it is packed with value.
