Watch some Paul Sellers videos on saw sharpening. I use his two hammers method to remove some set and even it out, looking/listening for high spots. Then I stone the sides as mentioned. Usually just a light pass with an 8000 waterstone or 2 just to get the burs off.

BUT also check your sawing technique. Not making any judgements, since I don’t know your skill level. But its important to let the saw do the cutting. If you try to manhandle a saw it can tend to grab regardless of sharpening and set etc.
