The chuck on my new makita drill is stuck with a drill bit in it. It won't open back up.

This is caused by tightening the chuck using the drills power, if you clamp the bit in a vice and using a pair of multi grips on the chuck in an anti clockwise direction gently bounce the grips and after a few tries it will undo, don't use too much pressure or try to unwind it in one move or myou will damage the chuck sleeve

The chuck wont open or close properly the three bits inside dont work at the same time they are all different lengths

Hi, the simplest and best solution is to replace the whole chuck. This is a cheap and easy thing to do and suitable 13mm chucks are available online from lots of different manufacturers and are nearly all compatible. here is link to a genuine Makita replacement chuck , but there are plenty of cheaper brands to choose from. Hope this was of use to you.

How to fix the bit

If your Makita matches the one on the picture, you will need a chuck key to attach a drill bit or tool to the machine's chuck. The chuck key inserts to any of the small holes in the front part of the chuck and at the same time its teeth interlocks with the teeth of the chuck. When turning the chuck key you will widen or loosen the grip of the three jaw pieces, that clamps to your tool or bit. Tighten the chuck key by hand until the chuck grips the bit securely. For safety, unplug the power cord whenever operating the chuck key on the chuck.

The chuck may have a left hand screw insde and at bottom of chuck, some chucks scew on and the screw holds it in place, may have to put an allen wrench in chuck and hit the wrench with hammer one way or the other to losen it.

Hi i broke the chuck on my 1/2 makita cordless

Put the biggest hex key you have in the chuck and tighten it then hit it clockwise with the spindle lock engaged a couple of times. The screw in the chuck will then undo clockwise and the chuck can be undone after by putting the allen key back in and unscrewing it anti-clockwise maybe with a light tap from a mallet.
Hope this helps
