SOURCE: Replaceing chuck on a Dewalt Dw511 1/2" hammer drill.

Open the chuck jaws and you will see a screw in the center of chuck, it is left hand thread. remove it and use a large bent handle allen wrench putting the short portion in the jaws and tightening. Shift the drill to the low position and have the clutch in the drill only position. place the handle of the wrench at about a 30 degree angle to strike it counterclockwise. put the chuck on a block of wood or workbench and hit it, this might take a couple times but it will come off. Let me know if you still need help

The hammer inside the drill head are most likely damaged ans/or broken, it is likely the best thing to do is just replace the tool.

How do I connect the chuck key to the chuck key holder on the DW235G drill?


Easiest is to tape the chuck on the cord about 18" away from the plug, this way-for safety reasons, you should disconnect it before making adjustments (with the chuck in hand and you accidentally pull the trigger and bad things can happen.)

My dewalt drill won't switch to hammer


I had the same problem. You need to manipulate either the speed or the torgue. In some cases both. Sometimes the drill/hammer feature gets stuck in between the two an this is the only way to fix it unless taking it apart but I wouldn't do that yourself. Best to take it back to the dealer or service shop

Dcd985 reverse switch won't work


The switch (PN: N089938) for your drill costs between $75 & $80, so:
If by "brand new, just out of the box" you mean you just bought it, bring it back to where you got it and exchange it or get your money back.
If by "brand new, just out of the box" you mean you bought it, it sat somewhere for some time and you're just now using it, check to see if it's still under warranty so you can get it fixed through that.
If it's out of warranty, you'll have to buy a switch to fix it. They're available on sites like www.ereplacementparts.com.

I have the chance of a cheap D25303K dewalt 230 volt drill. does it have a chisel rotation stop (percussion only) feature ?


Go to the Dewalt service website at http://servicenet.dewalt.com, put the model number in the parts search box and you'll be able to view or download the parts breakdown and owner's manual. By the manual that model does have three modes; a hammer only, drill only and hammer/drill.

Jaws won't tighten or loosen to hold a bit


Hmmm some times the counterclockwise screw that attaches the chuck to the drill come forward and that is how then it stucks the 3 parts that fix a drill to a chuck. Check if this screw come forward. If yes then destroy it and replace it... We destroy it by using a drill smaller than it (usually it is 5mm so we use 4mm bit and of course a CARBIDE one because even cobalt ones can not drill a hardened bolt)

Please visit a qualified technician. Because it's also my personal experienced with hammer drill that inside a small ball bearing with tiny spring as a tosser for shifting always been stocked up by sticky or hardening grease which you need to loosen. If not kindly check it up for something that is blocking the shift. Thanks for asking.
