Low priced (economy) shot will cause this problem. Also you may want to try cleaning the bore with a wire brush and some solvent as you would any other firearm. Let me know if this helps

I need a manual for Ryobi HT20VSK

The multi tool has no "chuck", it uses collets to fix the bits to the tool. Once the knurled cap is loosened or removed, the collet and bit can be removed. If the cap has been overtightened or left in the tool for an extended time, you can remove it by gripping the shank with pliers or vise grip and turn it to release the collet and bit.

I have ceramic (terra cotta) block walls in my basement (house was built around 1920. The blocks are ridgid and were not laid very evenly, although the walls are sound. Plastering is an option, but with...

My house is of similar age and construction. I built a nice TV room in the basement several years ago. My method was the same as the way interior walls are built in new construction. I nailed a 2x4 to the ceiling near the wall. I nailed another 2x4 (pressure treated) to the concrete floor directly below the 2x4 on the ceiling. Then I toe-nailed vertical studs in place. For the studs I used 2x3's since this allowed me to get a nice flat plane on the front surface while allowing an inch of space on the back for irregularities of the block wall. I then covered the studs with water resistant drywall. The results were excellent and have held up very well. I also use a dehumidifier, since my basement was somewhat damp. I built the dehumidifier into a cabinet so that it draws air from the space between the block wall and the 2x3 wall. I don't need to run the dehumidifier in the winter. For the interior walls separating the TV room from the rest of the basement (furnace and workshop area) I used 2x4s for the studs, but the 2x4 along the top and bottom were just like the first wall I described. And by the way, in order to nail the pressure treated 2x4 to the floor, I used a power-nailer that uses charges that look like 22 caliber gun blanks. This seems spooky, and is wicked loud (use earplugs and safety glasses!), but it is inexpensive and very effective. The nails don't have to resist pulling out, they only have to resist being slid around, since the wall stud holds the pressure treated 2x4 against the floor. Good luck!

Take digital pictures as you go. Get a parts list if you can as well.
There are some electronics cleaners special for sensitive electronics and motors.
Compressed dry air may help as well.
Most drills housings will require a long round shank tool. These tools are in the forms of philips or torx some even security torx depending on the Mfg.

Drill works perfectly in gear 2, but its like gear 1 doesnt engage properly, it just rattles and doesnt rotate when it comes under even slight pressure

This sounds like stripped gears, happens if you switch the gears while unit is running. you have to disassemble and replace what is damaged. Not always very easy for a home repair, consider a tool shop for this task.

Tool will not function, led flickers by trigger when attemting to use.

There is something making the motor turbine stick, i just fixed mine that was doing the same thing.

Remove the four screws holding the clutch/driver assembly on the top/front.

Use a pliers to rotate the motor gear shaft in the center of the shell until it moves freely, being careful not to damage the gear. mine was sticking in one spot so i just rotated it back and forth until it worked itself loose. There is most likely metal shavings or dirt clogging it and preventing it from rotating. I would clean any debris from inside before putting it back together and grease the moving parts if needed.

Attach a charged battery and pull the trigger in foreward and reverse positions to see if the drill works ok. Mine works like a charm now. One of my batteries is shot though, not sure if it had anything to do with the stuck motor turbine.

Speed switch stuck on 2

Suggest you open the drill, and see if the plastic slide for the dual speed switch, is stuck in the body of the drill.
From this, you will know if it's a simple fix of correcting the slide action of that plastic selector slide, or if it is going to require replacement of the switch itself.

The plastic selector slide, slides back and forth in a groove, on either side of the drill body. Could be something simple. Perhaps some dirt, or metal shavings, that can be removed.
Maybe there is a burr on that plastic selector slide. Perhaps a little lubrication will help also.

If it's the switch itself, parts have come loose inside due to breakage. Replacement would be necessary in this case, unless you are really prolific at fixing broken switches.

Dewalt dc925 chuck is stuck closerd with a hole saw bit in it can not loosen the chuck to removed the bit any ideas have tried a vice and have tried pliers will not come open

Try a little WD 40 into the jaws around the shank of the bit, if possible.
Otherwise, channel locks and a quick twist has been the only thing that's successful for me.
Good Luck!

Chuckless drill stuck tight with drill bit in

if you trap the chuck in a bench vice or alike and then use the drill in reverse in short bursts until it loosens a good spray with wd40 will also aid the situation
