I have a bosch reciprocating saw and the blade is stuck in the chuck. The lever to release the chuck won't open. I tried WD40 to loosen it up, but no luck. Any ideas?

If you have the lock released and can't get it out try pointing it towards the ground and running it. the piece should fall out unles it is still locked in

SOURCE: The blade lever on my sawzall is stuck in the up position

oohh, that a tough one. you gotta, very carefully peal back the hand gaurd, the rubber where you hold onto it, at. Then releas the screws undeneath. Seems like you should be able to cycle the saw to its furthest out position, then remove the blade gaurd, uning some pliers of some sort you should be able to make the release, release.

Hope this helps

The lever that releases the blade is no longer working. In other words the old blade is stuck and the lever doesn't release it any more. Any thoughts on a fix?


Sometimes plaster and drywall dust, or other abrasive materials cause these parts to stick... Try some WD40. I spray mine as routine maintenance! (You might have to let it soak for a few minutes the first time) Hope that helps!

I have a Bosch RS20 recip saw. A blade broke off in the chuck and I can't get it out. What should I do to get it out of there? Thanks for your help. Dan


Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

Blade stuck in reciprocating saw


The pin is probably stuck in the blade. This happens from time to time after they get dirty. Take some WD-40 or some other type of penetrating oil and spray a little in the blade holder while working the release lever. It will probably free right up.

How do you unlock the quikrelease when it is stuck open on the bosch recripcating saw


when you look at the front of the quick release, you should see 2 arrows, the arrow on the right faces up, the arrow on the left faces down. that is the open position, now all you need to do is insert a blade and it will lock closed by itself. then just turn it back to release the blade.
