You can apply som light lubricant spray to the threads or to the inside of the chuck and see if that helps. If not it may be permanently damaged or corroded and you may need to replace it.

To replace get you replacement chuck first, then;

Open the chuck fully. Inside the center bottom of the chuck you will normally find a reverse threaded lock screw that you must first remove. If it is hard to loosen, you may need to heat it with a micro torch or a heat gun to make the thread lock compound slip. Then fasten the smaller end of an allen key firmly into the jaws of the chuck. Engage the low gear. Then hit the longer end rapidly with a hammer to unscrew the chuck by rotating it anti clockwise.

I have a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill with a bit broken off inside and the chuck won't open.


Put your drill into reverse, and hold the chuck. With luck, that will loosen the chuck and the broken bit will fall out.

yes call 1-800-sawdust that's the Milwaukee factory number. They can tell you what the spindle and thread sizes are so you can order a keyed chuck. They should even be able to tell you what chuck they have that will fit it.

I have just purchased a Makita 8391DWPETK 18V Cordless Combi Drill - how do i actually put a drill bit in? Do I need to take off the plastic ring?


The large black part of the chuck should turn left and right to extend (close) and retract (open) the three chuck teeth that hold the bit in place. Turn the chuck to open it far enough to get your bit fully in the chuck then turn it closed to hold the bit in. When the teeth make contact turn the chuck a bit further to get it tight enough that the bit won't slip. When you get used to it, sometimes it's easier to hold the chuck lightly and turn it by lightly squeezing the trigger to turn the chuck with the drill motor.

Mybrand new RZ20 keyless chuck will not close around a bit.


If a large enough drill bit is inserted too far so it bottoms in the chuck, the jaws run into the bottomed shank and will not close beyond a certain point due to the interference. If you hold the drill bit out about 1/2 inch from the bottom, the jaws should close on the bit. I assume you have tested the chuck without a bit to verify they can close.

How do I get the opening on the drill to close around the drill bit


Turn the "chuck" (the round part that the drill bit goes into) with your hand until it is snug, then use the chuck key to tighten it the rest of the way. The chuck key should be strapped to the cord of the drill. It looks like a gear and has a "T" handle for turning it. It fits into the gear teeth on the chuck.

Chuck on my drill is stuck open and I cannot close it to put in a new bit


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.

place the bit in a bench-vice and take a little benchhammer and with a plastic hammer .
hold the hammer with chisel tip on the claws of the chuck and tap with the plastic hammer on the other side of the bench hammer and beat gently on the three claws tighten the chuck three-step around gently around so the bit slowly from the drill bit comes slowly loose.
if the bit is out you can turn the chuck free, if this problem repeats go to the dealer for warranty .
