Chuck is locked in open position

Craftsman cordless drill. The chuck is open completely and I am unable to release it so I can tighten a bit. Yesterday, I was opening it completely up and then it got jammed in that position.

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

    put the chuck in your mouth, and think about Jesus. This should loosen it up.

How do I remove the drill bit from a Makita6223D?


If your drill has the original keyless chuck on it, there are two plastic rings on the chuck. The outer ring should tighten and loosen by hand enough to hold the bit(s). The inner ring is to hold on to if the chuck gets overtightened. Chucks do wear and get corroded over time and can get locked in position. If you can't get it loose by hand, channel lock pliers can help. If the chuck is that bad you may need to replace it.

I'm new to home improvement, and just bought my first cordless drill (Ryobi P204, 18-volt, 1/2"). How the heck do I insert the bit? The drill comes with two batteries, and a charger. There is an opening...


Like many drills these days, the P 204 has keyless chuck. In order to secure a bit, locate the forward/reverse switch (right above the trigger). Set it to the center of the three positions. This will lock the drill so that it cannot turn. Now turn the black portion at the front of the drill's nose (looking at the drill from the front, clockwise rotation will tighten the chuck and counterclockwise will loosen it) Adjust the chuck jaws so the bit you have chosen will fit without too much slop and then tighten the chuck until it holds the bit snugly and straight. Unlock the forward/reverse switch (push to the right to drill or insert screws) and you should be ready to go!

place the bit in a bench-vice and take a little benchhammer and with a plastic hammer .
hold the hammer with chisel tip on the claws of the chuck and tap with the plastic hammer on the other side of the bench hammer and beat gently on the three claws tighten the chuck three-step around gently around so the bit slowly from the drill bit comes slowly loose.
if the bit is out you can turn the chuck free, if this problem repeats go to the dealer for warranty .

Keyless drill has locked in a closed position with the drill bit


I just put mine in reverse and grasp the chuck with a pair of channel locks. Pull the trigger and hold the channel locks tightly. The chuck will release the bit.

2 of the three bit heads in the chuck are stuck in the down/open position and will not come up after inserting a bit and tightening it.


you need to replace the chuck one of the jaws has broken threads on it. Go to Dewaltservicenet.com for a replacement chuck and there is detailed instructions in the tip section on how to replace it.
