Try giving the inside a spray with WD40 then try closing the chuck. Check that there is not a left handed screw in the center of the chuck that has become partialy unscrewed. The chuck can jam open and just need a strong gril to release it. If the outer sleve of the chuck is turning but nothiing happens then you will need to get the chuck replaced.
This is just a longshot, but look down inside the chuck with a flashlight and see if your chuck-mounting screw has migrated out. I had the same problem with my Milwaukee, and turns out that's what it was. The collet was jamming up on the chuck screw.
Thank you for using FixYa. To change the chuck on your cordless drill, open the old chuck jaws to the maximum. Inside the chuck where it attatches to the drill body, there is a Philips headed bolt. Unscrew the bolt in a CLOCKWISE direction. Reverse this procedure to fit the new chuck.
usually with a special tool to hole the drive, if you look at the back, if the chuck, where the shaft mates you will see it has two flats or a profile on it, you make get a tool that can grip that and twist the chuck. If it hasn't you have to somehow jam the Motor, or the shaft, and again twist.
The screw that holds the chuck on, is in the bottom of the chuck itself. If there is something jammed in the chuck, it must be removed in another manor. If the chuck is jammed, I have used two pair of channellocks to open the it.
b&d usualy thow away inthis range.still you can remove the chuck and fix or relace chuck unscrews anticlockwise hold shaft behind chuck with thin spanner or it may be the type with allen screw dwn the centre of chuck
What you can try is some WD 40 spray into the chuck and then find a GOOD pair of gloves or a rag and hold the collar of the chuck either by hand or use the rag and a pair of channel locks to protect it and then use the tool motor slowly and see if that doesn't release it
What size bit are you using if it is real small it may be below the min sixe require for that chuck .If it is say 1/8 or larger it may be time for a new chuck .They are easy to replace open the chuck as far as you can there is a screw inside them most of them are left hand threads just back it out and tap the chuck loose with a hammer .Make sure you know the threads of your chuck when you buy the new one most are 1/2-20 but some can be 3/8-24 tpi
