It sounds like that the chuck jaws are out of alignment. You will need to get a new chuck.

SOURCE: Chuck jaws on Makita 8444D fell out

There is suppose to be a flat head Left hand thread chuck screw in there. It may have fallen out. You will not be able to put the jaws back into the chuck. You will have to replace the chuck with a new one. If you make sure that the chuck screw is not there you can remove the chuck with a couple of steps. Make sure the drill is in it's lowest gear. Use a strap wrench or some large vise grips on the chuck. If there is still one jaw in the chuck make sure it is all the way open and locking the collar to the chuck. The chuck will come off in the regular lefty loosey configuration. It may be stubborn. If this is the case, You may have to cut the collar off the chuck and use a pipe wrench. Or bring it to a professional to get it changed out.

How to remove keyless chuck


open the chuck jaws right up
down the center of the chuck you will see either a philips screw head or a hex head for allen key
hold the shaft at the base of the chuck to stop it from turning and undo the screw in the chuck in a right hand direction ( it is a left hand thread) when you have that out , still holding the shaft turn the chuck in the left hand direction ( normal thread ) and screw the chuck off
to assist in undoing the chuck do it up so that the jaws come out a bit
place something between the 3 jaws to act as a lever or use an allen key in the chuck done it tight and use that as a lever to undo the chuck
the secret is the lh thread screw in side the chuck which stops it from undoing when the drill is in reverse

How do I remove chuck on a dewalt right angle drill dw960?


Open the jaws and look inside. You'll see a fastener. Some have Phillips head or an allen wrench. Use the proper tool to turn the fastener counter clockwise to remove the fastener. You may have to help the chuck off the spindle if it sticks.

The chuck wont tighten


The outer sheath of the chuck turns a thread on the back of the jaws in the chuck and it it is not tightening correctly then the jaw threads have been broken/cracked or the jaws have been stressed out of alignment and are not longer closing in a parallel manner. Best replace the chuck as they are generally not repairable.

I have a skill 18v drill and the chuck jaws that hold the bit has one stuck down and two even, i have taken off the chuck but was wondering how to disassemble the chuck itself or if there is another way to...


Lube the chuck with some penetrating oil and bring the two loose jaws near the surface. Take a brass or soft hammer and pound the face. The stuck jaw should come down. They have a spring to push them down, but sometimes grits or other contamination causes them to stick.

I cant get the drill to open up to remove the bit. What do i do?


Your chuck is jammed. You can use a punch that is the same size as the jaws and a small hammer. You can tap the jaws back with the punch ever so slightly. Tap on each jaw the same amount of times. Start on one jaw with one tap, then to the next, and then to the third. After tapping each try to turn the chuck to open. This will dislodge the jaws slighlty and you should be able to move it. Keep doing this until you can open the chuck or remove the bit. After removing the bit spray some lubricant into the chuck and work it back and forth the whole length of the jaws. If this does not work you can put the bit in a vise and use a rubber or soft end hammer to hit the chuck off the bit. In this case you will have to replace the chuck. There is probably a bad spot in the jaws that is stripped.

My dc927 chuck is jammed fully open and won't move. How can I lossen it. Regards George


Something I would try:

George, look down the center of the chuck jaws with a bright light. It's going to be difficult to see, but there is an Allen head screw down in there.
Taking the screw out, will afford you the opportunity to remove the chuck from the drill. The drill should have a slightly tapered shaft, and the chuck has a tapered hole to match. It might be stuck on tight. Tap on the back side of the chuck, with a wooden block, and hammer.
(Yes, this may require a helper)

Tap on one side, then the other to try to remove the chuck evenly.
With the chuck off it may release pressure on the jaws. It may not.
In this case the chuck will have to be opened up, (Which will release pressure on the jaws), and the jaws reset.
