Hi Ken, sadly it sounds like the chuck is past its best. The cogs inside the chuck have most probably worn. If you can get the chuck off try clamping it in a vice and use some pump pliers to undo it. Failing that you will need a new chuck which you may be able to get at a good diy store.
To remove your chuck, open the jaws of the chuck fully, but don't open them so tight that they lock in the open position. Remove the screw inside the chuck. Spray the inside of the chuck with penetrating oil. Tap around the edge of the chuck, while pulling it away from the motor. It should come right off, with a little effort.
If the chuck is stuck open and you cant "muscle" it closed something is probably jammed up in there and it needs to be replaced. Chucks take a good share of the abuse on power tools and most manufactuers consider them a "common wear item" like brake pads or Tires on your car. A chuck is fairly simple to replace if your drill stuck open and they are commonly replaced on the higher end "Industrial Grade" Power Tools like DeWalt and Milwaukee.
Looking at the Make and Model of your drill it would probably be easiest and most cost effective to just replace the entire drill. If you tried to replace the chuck and found a chuck that will fit your tool it may cost you anywhere from $25 - $40. For Around $40 you can purchase a new drill with a fresh battery.
Hi there. spray some oil into it and tap it lightly with a small hammer. Then hold the chuck and gently squeese the trigger in forward setting and backward setting. Do not use full force on backward setting. This should do the trick. Iceman.
Inside the chuck is a left-handed
screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you
can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen
wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer.
The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the
spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it
stationery if need be. Please rate me
First you need to shift the tool to the low position, turn the clutch setting to the drill only position. Open the jaws and remove the chuck retaining screw it is LH threads. After all this find a bent handle allen wrench about the size of the chuck capacity and insert the smaller end in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or workbench with the wrench at about a 30 degree angle so you can hit the wrench counterclockwise. Strike it with a hammer, it might take a couple times but this usually works. Good Luck
