Things you should look for are signs of damage or warping. If any of the segments on the edges of the blade are broken or cracked, then it is time to replace the blade as soon as you can. Physical damage on a blade can make the blade extremely dangerous to cut with.
If you find your blades are not reaching their maximum speed, or perhaps they have stopped cutting, this could be a sign that your segments are glazed over. So long as you are still able to see the thickness of the segments, this is a sign that your blade simply needs to be sharpened.
If you are looking at your blade and you can see the core of the blade, this is a sign that the diamond segments have been used. This will prevent the blade from cutting and you will want to replace it as soon as you are able to.
Lastly, one of the more notable signs, is vibrations or thumbing noises. This is a result of your blade edge worn-out and a solid sign that your blade needs replaced.
