I had this problem too, an unfortunately, there's no manual on the black & decker site for this product.
I figured it out though! You have to push down (towards the motor) the chuck collar (cyllindrical black part which holds the bit). If you've tried this already, try harder - it can get really stuck and require a lot of force to push down.
Anyways, if you apply enough force, it will give and allow you to remove whatever bit is inside.
Hope this helps.

    great suggestion. I tapped the chuck collar with a hammer and the bit popped out. Appreciate the tip.

Totally worked! I used the spindle from a stack of cd's. I put it over the top of the drill and put it on a chair and pushed down and it popped right out. Thanks a Million!

Guys, this worked for me as well. The spindle idea was great, so I used a spark plug socket and a rubber mallet. Got the bit right out. Thanks!

How do I load the drill bits in the keyles chuck of my Metabo impact drill Model SBE 561?

Keyless chucks work one of two ways
1: Simply turn the chuck by hand to loosen or tighten drill bit, once it grips the drill bit you will not be able to turn it anymore
2: Some keyless chucks operate by pulling the chuck back towards the body of the drill, placing the drill bit in and then releasing the chuck back to its original position

My bit in my drill is stuck into a large tree stump... that had been cut close to the ground. How can I get the bit unstuck? My dewalt drill is unable to drill in & drill out.

If it's a twist bit try putting a vice-grip pliers on the end and turn it so the fluting pushes the bit out. If it won't move or if it's a spade bit you'll have to split the wood around the bit. You may or may not be able to do this with the offending part of the stump in the ground. Using a wedge, drive it into the stump near but not next to the bit so you don't damage the bit. Don't drive the wedge flush into the stump or you may get the bit out and then have the wedge stuck. Worst case, carefully use a chainsaw to cut out the stump so you can split the wood around the bit.

Don't know how to attach a screw on to my corded Skil 3/s drill. Is there a special bit for this purpose?

Hi auntygamma,

Welcome to fixya!

Yes, you need to use a bit with all drills. They come in different sizes and shapes. If you don't have any bits to put into your drill, an all purpose kit would be nice to have. You can find them at your local hardware store or online.

Check out this webpage:

Copy and paste this entire web address into your browser and a page with one of the kits on it will open up for you. You don't have to buy a kit with lots of bits, you can pick up just one or two bits that you would use the most at the hardware store. The most used bits would be the #1 and #2 Phillips bits and a couple of different sizes of flat bladed bits. A few drill bits might come in handy too.

The drill that you have has a keyless chuck. This means you don't need any special tools to put in a bit or change one. If you look at the chuck, you'll see that the ridged part has two sections. If you hold the back section with your left hand, you can turn the front section to either open the chuck or close it to put bits in.

I don't know if this was clear or not, but if you have any problems or more questions about this, please be sure to reply back. I'll be glad to help you.

I have a Kupa/KP36 that is making noise but the bit is not rotating. I have check the cord for power, tried different outlets. Unplugged hand piece replugged it in changed bits and still the same result....

Sounds like the chuck holder is already worn and needs replacement.
If the motor still runs but the drill bit won't turn the problem would be the chuck adjuster( the one that holds the drill bit and tightens it ).
If the motor does not turn but there is a whining sound the problem would be the armature bushing ( it is inside the motor which the rotor/armature rotates). The armature does not turn anymore.
Fuse is out of question because the motor still have some power. Check also the motor brush.
Disassembling it requires to unscrew all the screws on the side and carefully remove the side cover, you can clean it and dust it off.
Hope that helps you out!

I have a DEWALT DC920 drill-driver and have a bit stuck in the chuck. The chuck adjuster appears to be stripped. Need to remove the bit and replace the chuck. Any ideas on how to get the bit released?

try tapping on all sides of the chuck lightly with a hammer and wiggling the bit... you can also try to spray some oil into the chuck and see if that loosens the bit for you... You can also clamp the bit in a vise (or get someone with a pair of pliers) and pull, that will sometimes do the trick.

I have a 6011d cordless Iam trying to remove the chuck appearantly someone has tried removing and the allen capscrew is damaged . Would anyone have a solution for removing the screw?

You could try a screw extractor, the only problem is this may likely be a reverse threaded screw (probably why it was damaged in the first place) Try and jam(gently sort of) in a bigger hex wrench If it is beyond a hex wrench you could try to drill it out with a slightly bigger bit then the hex socket, but only drill down a little bit further then the socket hole originally was. Don't drill into the shaft of the screw. then try to screw a sheet metal screw into the hole. You want it to be big enough so it binds to the sides of the hole. Then as you tighten the screw you may loosen the hex screw.

How do I change the screw drivers on the black & decker power screw driver?

The black collar should slide forward, allowing for the removal and insertion of bits.
