Open the jaws right up and down in the bottom of the chuck should be a screw ( left hand thread )
for the chuck to come off in reverse means that that screw is missing

If you look at the end of the shaft on the drill after it unscrews, there will be a hole with threads inside--if not the screw may have broken off---your missing screw that holds the chuck on--it's a left handed threaded screw---it's head may be slotted--philips---torx---or allen---this is available at your Dewalt dealer or tool repair---all that needed is the size/model number of unit---screw the chuck back on tightly then open chuck jaws all the way then put the holding screw in---tighten it down---REMEMBER IT'S LEFT HANDED----GL

Use a pipe wrench on it to give yourself a little more leverage. It is simply jammed all the way open and it will release when you apply enough force.

SOURCE: the chuck is stuck on 18 volt dewalt drill

It is not the chuck that is stuck, it is probably the armature. Probably a problem with the brushes. Since it is so easy I would try first unscrewing the caps and pulling the brushes out to see if things spin then. If the brush will not come out then it is probably jambed and you would have to take the drill apart. If you take the brushes out and still have a problem, at least one reasonable but simply checked problem is eliminated.

SOURCE: problem with the chuck

Had the same problem on mine. Remove the chuck, then remove the snap ring on the back of the chuck( carefull, the housing will fall out once the ring is removed), on the side of the chuck you'll find a cam and small odd shaped spring held in by two cylender pins, on mine the spring had a gap in it and I just spread the gap to about twice the size in was and put everything back together and it has worked fine ever sence. Hope it works for you.

My 18 volt dewalt cordless runs well except when I try to remove something with it. Reversing the drill makes my nutdriver bit fall out as it opens the chuck, so all removals have to be done by hand.


I would make sure that the bit is firmly installed in the chuck, you should hear clicking when the bit is tightening, this is the chuck locking itself on the but. and when going in reverse make sure you dont have your hand or have the chuck pressed against an object. If nether of these are the problem then there may be a problem with the chuck itself and should be replaced.

How do I change the drill bits and then tighten so the bits stay in the drill?


The chuck will not turn. So to loosen just turn the black plastic counter clockwise. The chuck will loosen. Or you can hold the black part on the chuck tight and put the drill in reverse and slowly squeeze the trigger and the chuck will loosen also. Do the opposite to put a new bit in. Put the drill in forward and hold the black part of the chuck and squeeze the trigger with the bit in place and it will tighten down on the bit.

I also have a problem w/a DC925 type 1 chuck releasing in reverse. messenger77 seems to have the 'fix', but how does the chuck come off? There is not a screw in the center.


you can go to the tip section and there are detailed instructions on how to remove. Secondly if the chuck itself is unthreading in reverse it is because the screw is missing or possibly the head is broken off. Let me know and I will try and give you some more help
