These tools need very little maintenance. Make sure your chuck is tightened down, inluding the screw in the middle of it, as this can work loose over time and jam the jaws. Other than that it is just a matter of using an airline through the vents to blow any dust/debris/carbon out. The gearboxes are enclosed so need little lubrication and the motor has plain brass bearings. If the motor squeals a little when starting/stopping jsut apply some oil behind the pinion gear and on the shaft at the rear of the motor.

How do I oil an electric drill

What are you trying to oil and why? The only thing I ever lubricate is the part that holds the bit. I use a silicone spray.

I inserted battery backwards and smoke came from back of drill. What is damaged and is it repairable ?

You do not specify a make or model. It is difficult to provide definitive answers without specifics. In general, smoke is a bad sign. If an electronic circuit is involved, reversing the input voltage normally causes permanent damage.

How do I replace the chuck in my drill? It is making a grinding noise.

Chucks DON'T make grinding noises!!!!!

The grinding noise is probably coming from the REDUCTION GEARBOX which is located behind the chuck [the shaft upon which the chuck is mounted comes out of the gearbox].

There are usually four (4) screws mounting the gearbox housing/cover onto the motor/handle section of most drill/drivers.

The cause of most grinding nioses originating in the gearbox is lack of lubricating grease between moving parts.

When I use the drill there is a burnt smell afterwards...what is causing this?

Drillbits "burn" what you are drilling when there is too much friction. That is caused by a variety of things...including...lack of lubrication for metal work...and usually a dull drill bit in wood.

If you see no smoke comming from the point of might be your drill motor..check it out when you are using could be dirty and need a good cleaning...or it could be burning out from excessive or improper usage.
