Question about Dewalt 18 Volt Compact Drill Kit
Got a broken drill chuck i cant get off (Dewalt)
First remove the chuck retaining screw LH thread, next shift the tool to the drill only position and the low side. Find a bent handle allen wrench and insert the short piece into the chuck and clamp down, place the chuck with the long portion at about a 30 degree so you can strike it counter clockwise, usually a block of wood or work bench will do and then get a hammer and safety glasses and hit it, it might take a couple times but it will come off

If you find that the end of the screw inside the chuck is actually broke then you have a gear problem inside your drill. This is actually a very common problem. Sometimes people push too hard on their drills and the gears inside wear out and break. This prevent the motor from wearing out, but, the gears have to be replaced.
If it is the gears and not the chuck. you broke the minimium of the front gear or gears inside your drill. YOU CANNNOT repair gears. they need to be replaced. you may be able to find some off brand gears to work but, you run the risk that they are not as strong as your original ones, or may not be exactly grooved correctly.
so, if replacing your chuck does not work. find replacement gears. IF you cannot find the gears from the manufacturer see about replacing your drill.
If the chuck is still good, keep it. If you buy the same model, keep your old drill for replacement parts, ie, switch, armature, cord, etc.
hope this helps somewhat.

Open chuck all the way (like for a large drill bit). There should be a set screw at the bottom (where you would put a drill bit). Don't turn too hard - it may be a left handed screw (I don't remember if it is a lefty for sure but try gently each way then with a bit more force each way until it moves).
