Go to any service center they will help you out to much the chuck. dont's really matter what brand as long it fits

Posted on May 29, 2008


If the problem is with very small bits 1/16" for example, the chuck could be defective in either design or manufacture. I have had this problem with a cordless model FS1800D. Waiting on a replacement chuck.

Chuck is stuck , can't get it unlock to tighten around a new bit

Could be a dying battery making it not be able to open itself cuz theres not enough juice, try charging the battery and do it or get some wd-40 and spray it around the chuck and let it drip over the bit into it.

Black and Decker corded drill won't tighten around a bit.

the chuck sounds like it is bad or maybe stuck from rust, what you can try and do is spray some WD-40 on the jaws and then try and holding the collar with a glove and run the drill SLOWLY in forward/reverse and see if it loosens up if not you will need a new one.

Having problems securing masonary Bit on 3/8 Black&Decker Drill 7

If it's an inexpensive bit, odds are it's spinning in the chuck. If the chuck key can't tighten the jaws well enough, you'll need to borrow or buy a different drill (or you could replace the chuck).

If you bought an SDS bit (one with slots milled in the shank), you're best off buying a bit made for a standard drill. It's not impossible to get a SDS bit to chuck into a standard drill, but it's difficult and they often slip loose during drilling, messing up the hole.

Take care!
