6520 chuck problem

Hi,
The 6520-21 chuck assembly got wet and started to rust. I sprayed it with WD but the blade holder will not engage. I am able to rotate the "chuck" to insert the blade, but it does not lock and hold the blade. How do I disassemble to clean/lubricate, or do I need to replace parts?

You are both correct about the rust, but as far as the can of worms the rebuild kit for the Quik Lok Blade is about 20.00 and comes complete with DETAILED instructions that will walk you thru it. It takes about 5 minutes and is really easy even for a novice. Dave

Thank you very much for responding.
My local repair shop showed me the replacement parts and described how the blade lock mechanism works. Basically, it is a ramp that releases the blade. Somehow (rust I presume) it got stuck on the end of the ramp and would not release. We finally got it unstuck and worked it in. You are right about opening up a can of worms..The replacement kit is tricky as the tech told me.

I agree, WD40 is bad because it may pick up debris and clog the movement-creating the problem all over again. I think I will flush the WD out and lubricate with a dry lubricating spray. Compressed air is a good way to help flush it out.

Thanks again!

Hi, I'm not too struck on using WD40! It cleans down to bare metal and usually adds to the prob. Blow it out with compressed air, moving the chuck back and forth, then add a few drops of 3in1 oil. Try this first before opening a can of worms! LOL Frankster016

Sawzall blade keeps popping out on milwaukee 6520-21 sazall.


could be a problem with the quick lok blade system not fully seating or the pin inside is worn and would need replacement. I would first try using some WD-40 or similar and spraying the mechanism to remove any dirst that might be stopping the lock from working, when turned and released it should snap back, if not that is your problem. They are not difficult to replace if need be. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I'm unable to remove the blade from the quick change something won't release the blade model 6521-21


what you can try is to unplug tool and spray something like WD-40 on the collar mechanism and usually it is simpler for this to remove the pivot shoe and turn the collar and release until you can get full rotation and pull the blade out. There might be some dirt in the release mechanism not allowing the blad/collar to release. This is about the only way without having to remove the assembly. Let me know if you need more assistance

Reciprocating saw problems cannot get broken blade out of chuck


Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

Motor spins, blade doesn't move


Yes it should be covered under warranty, it might not be a shaft breakage. there is a hex nut under the gearcase cover that might have loosened up. But I would take to a repair center first for warranty coverage. If you still have problems let me know.

Locking device will not reset and lock blade in holder on a Bosch RS 15 Saw. .The locking device is up against the pin and will not rotate.


try using compressed air to blow out the area and then some WD-40 to loosen it up. They sell the holder as an assembly, You can go to Boschtools.com and download a breakdown for this tool. It is usually some debris or rust that makes them stick.
