Drill/driver Torque Adjustment Collar

My Dewalt drill/driver's torque adjustment collar won't turn to the last position; the position with the "drill bit" icon. All the other torque settings seem to be ok. Is the clutch broken?
Thank you

How do i loosen my torque adjustment collar on my drill if it is stuck?

You need to take the drill cases apart and see what is jamming the adjustment collar.

My Dewalt cordless drill, model DC970, is fully charged and turns. However, when I try to turn a screw, the drill does not move. What should I do?

There is a collar that controls the torque of the driver just behind the chuck. Rotate it until the drill icon lines up for full power.

I dont know how to change the drillbit in my dw257 corded drill

Do you mean the Dewalt DW257 drywall screwdriver? For that model, you need to pull the adjustment collar forward. (This part fits over the drill bit to the clutch housing.) Remove the collar completely. Then using pliers, if needed, pull the drill bit tip out of the holder. Then put a new tip into the holder. Then snap the adjustment collar back over the retaining ring. See Figure 3 on page 2 of the manual (see below for a link) to see what the adjustment collar looks like.

If you want to replace the bit holder and the drill bit tip, pull the holder straight out from the drill. (Again use pliers if it is tight.) Then push a new bit holder into the spindle until the ball lock snaps into the groove of the bit holder shank. Put in the bit tip. Then put the adjustment collar on and make sure it snaps into the retaining ring.

These are the directions for the Type 3 DW257. The manual is available here: . From the Product Information tab, select your model type and the instruction manual will be shown in the right hand column, if it is available. The manual is available as a PDF; you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

DeWalt DW995 Type 1 cordless drill/driver. I took apart the drill for cleaning/lube and am having difficulty installing the "adjustment collar" into the correct position. There is a black mark on...

Alright, I hope you can follow me on this, it may be confusing. First, set the clutch coller on the clutch in any position. Use the collar to tighten down the clutch in a clockwise direction until the clutch stops clicking, then back the clutch off (1) click. Then take the clutch collar off and spin the collar until you see the little drill bit on the collar, line it up with the top of the drill as it would sit if it was put together, and gently set it on the clutch and spin it counter-clockwise a very small amount until it drops into place. Then you will see the drill icon is just offset to the left as it would be assembled. Then click it clockwise and the drill bit design is right at the top where it is supposed to be if the clutch is fully engaged. I wish I could make a video of this, it would be much easier.
If you have any questions, or need clarification, I will understand. It is far easier to do, then to explain.

I am having difficult adjusting the Depth settin on my Dewalt DW253 drywall screw gun

Operator's manual is here.

To seat the screw deeper in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the right. To seat the screw higher in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the left.

If you've been using it a while and turning the collar is difficult, you've probably got some plaster dust, dirt, etc. built up in the threads for the collar. It's probably worth breaking that chuck and collar down, giving it a good scrub with an old toothbrush and putting some dry lube on it. I'm partial to Dupont's Multi-Use Teflon spray. It doesn't attract sawdust or dirt.

In the event you need it, exploded diagram with parts list is here.

If you don't want to mess with it, a Dewalt service center can clean your drill up for you pretty reasonably. I was in one in early June, 2010 and they had some 10% off service coupons sitting on the counter.
