Make sure the torque selector which is the black ring with numbers and a drill symbol on it behind the chuck is rotated to the drill image for drilling and general purpose use.

    Something in the planetary gear set/gear train broke. If it is still under warranty- it should be covered. If not under waranty,You can contact Dewalt and see if they might do something for you like discount a new or refurbished unit, if it was a real chronic problem for that model or production run- , Who knows? They may have decided to give people an unannounced warranty extension, but that would be a rare thing If it were mine and a few years old I would put it in the drill parts bucket if I had others of that same model and use it for parts to keep those others running. . The cost to repair it and time invested would in many cases amount to more than buying a comparable new unit.

Found a used Home Master KFF6 Drill Press; thought I scored big when I got it for $50. Motor hums, spindle and chuck don't turn. Can I troubleshoot and fix myself, or can I get it repaired in CT?


The humming motor is that it could not get a turn direction because of only ac and a bad centrifugal or start capacitor if it hums try to turn it clockwise on the chuck to see if it will run .

I have just purchased a Makita 8391DWPETK 18V Cordless Combi Drill - how do i actually put a drill bit in? Do I need to take off the plastic ring?


The large black part of the chuck should turn left and right to extend (close) and retract (open) the three chuck teeth that hold the bit in place. Turn the chuck to open it far enough to get your bit fully in the chuck then turn it closed to hold the bit in. When the teeth make contact turn the chuck a bit further to get it tight enough that the bit won't slip. When you get used to it, sometimes it's easier to hold the chuck lightly and turn it by lightly squeezing the trigger to turn the chuck with the drill motor.

THE CHUCK WON'T TURN WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING. YOU CAN HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND AND FEEL IT CLICKING AND HEAR IT WHAT COULD BE WRONG WITH IT?


The DCD950 drill has a chuck that does not require the reverse-threaded lock screw. It is put on with lok-tite and a good deal of torque. It is hard to remove without the Dewalt vice tool to hold it but not impossible. Some can be removed by tightening the chuck in a vice and, using the drill handle for leverage, apply steady, even, strong pressure until it breaks free. Using this method usually bends the part of the chuck in the vice making it useless. Another reason for the chuck not turning when the motor is turning is a broken transmission. If the chuck works properly in tightening down and releasing bits, your problem may be in the transmission. If you go to http://www.ereplacementparts.com/ and search for your model number you can look at a breakdown of your drill and what you're looking at to replace the transmission.

These are fairly easy to disassemble and get back together, take it apart and find out what got stripped, It might be an easy fix, then again, it might be going back to sears. They will take it back no matter what. Hope this helps.

Hilti te5 motor turning but not driving chuck


While the drill is running grab the chuck and turn it by hand. If you here a grinding noise that tells you the rotor gear is stripped.

Chuck not engaging


The speed selector is between two speeds or the output shaft from the motor to the chuck is broken/stripped. If your drill has a clutch setting you may check to make sure it is on the lowest number possible.

Dewalt dc920 repair instructions chuck


To remove the chuck on your drill follow the instructions for the type of drill chuck you have:
Instructions for removing a keyed chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw place the chuck key, with the chuck facing toward you, into one of the holes on the right side of the chuck. Strike the key in a clockwise direction with a wooden mallet or similar object. This will loosen the screw inside the chuck.
2.) Open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
3.) With the chuck facing toward you place the key into one of the holes on the left side of the chuck. Using a wooden mallet or similar object, strike the key sharply in a counter-clockwise direction. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck
Instructions for removing a keyless chuck
Most reversing drills have a left hand threaded screw located inside the bottom of the chuck.
1.) If the unit has this screw open chuck jaws fully. Insert screwdriver into the bottom of the chuck to engage screw head. Remove screw by turning clockwise this is a left-hand screw.
2.) Insert the short end of a 1/4" or larger hex Allen wrench into the chuck and tighten. Facing the tool strike the long end of the hex wrench sharply counter clockwise as it is a standard right hand thread. This will loosen the chuck so that it may be unscrewed by hand.
There is no way to stop the motor from turning.
It may require several attempts to loosen the chuck
