SOURCE: Spline drill bit won't spin

There a a few things to look for, first is the selector on top in the hammer only position or hammer with rotation. Second look at the spline bit, does the splines look worn excessively also try and look in the nose of the tool for spline condition and last the clutch mechanism might have come apart. Good news though this tool might be covered under warranty, some had a 5 year coverage.

How can I fix my drill. I was drilling and it froze up on me. You can turn it one way but not the other


Place the drill bit in a bench vise with the whole machine on it together spray the chuck in with good enough wd40 and take a bench hammer and a great plastic hammer , place the angled tip side to the 3 claws of the chuck that are holding the bit and beat slowly and with care the machine from the bit some times switch inbetween the place to beat every claw of the chuck make a little time to do this but do not forget wd40 to spray after and if the machine is beat from the drill spray the whole chuck inside and try to unlock in the most cases it will function again , otherwise there must be an chuck replaced.

My Hilti TE 17 roto hammer rotates but wont hammer


This one should have a knob or lever on the side of it to switch between "drill" and "hammer plus drill" It can be used as either a regular drill or a hammer drill.

If the chuck is completely jammed, you can replace it. If its locked but open, then you can remove the screw holding the chuck with an allen wrench. It's going be be tough because it will be secured with glue, such as loc-tite, and it will also be a left handed screw. So be sure to turn clockwise to unscrew it.

You can buy the part at this website, or at a milwaukee service center:

It's a little pricey, but better than buying a new drill. You should also be able to have a service center put the part on for you, if you don't feel comfortable taking it apart.

Quick change clutch is locked


Push the rubber sleve off the drill bit and up the drill bit then the plastic ring. release the clip around the spindle. Slide the clip and chuck sleve forward and remove the ball sitting in the spindle. You should then be able to pull the bit from the machine. If it does not want to come hold the bit in a vice and tap the spindle off the end of the bit using a suitable punch. Rebuild chuck in reverse.

How do I change a bit


This drill uses a keyless chuck. which means you have to hold onto the barrel by the end of the drill chuck. Then you need to put the drill in reverse to open the chuck to put a bit in. Insert a bit and then put the drill back into forward and hold chuck to tighten.

Put drill in revcerse and the chuck comes loose dropping the bit out


Yup, that is what happens. You can lessen that by really cranking it down, but it is an issue with most hand tightened chucks, and does not indicate a mechanical failure. I sometimes miss my old, heavy Milwaukee wrist-breaker with the keyed chuck. If it is just too much to live with, you could get a drill with the click in hex chuck or put a Jacobs keyed chuck on your hammer drill.
Anyway, I hear where you are coming from and share your frustration.

My milwaukee 5316 rotary hammer drill wont spin,just hammers


Could be a couple things, do you have the selector in the rotation mode, also there is an internal clutch that might have broken or the splines on the spindle might be rounded. If it is the clutch you would have to take it in for repair, it is extremely tricky to work on. Take the bit out (make sure you are using the right bits for this tool) and look at the splines to check their condition. Let me know if I can help more
