Rarely, you can load them up with WD40 or the like and work out whatever has the chuck stuck if its small enough or just rust. More likely something got in the threads inside and ate them up. Unfortunately there are no replaceable parts in a chuck.

M1112 chuck .0045 off center


There are three possiblities: 1. dirt interfering with the jaw position or between the jaw and the workpiece - if you loosen, tap the jaw, retighten on your work and the result is repeatable, then this is not the problem. 2. the jaw itself needs to be cut, as you are doing - this will solve the problem and give you repeatably centering so long as 1 or 3 are not the problem. 3. The most insidious problem would be that the spiral groove on the back plate which is supposed to move the three jaws in harmony has a bad spot - this would give you inconsistent centering of the jaws at different diameters and could only be fixed by re-grinding that spiral groove (this would be VERY tricky to do yourself) or replacing the backplate.
good luck!

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.

Keyless Chucks
Open chuck jaws by turning plastic collar with fingers and insert shank of bit about 3/4" into
chuck. Tighten plastic collar CLOCKWISE while depressing spindle lock button (F) on the right
side of the tool housing (Fig. 4). To release bit, turn plastic collar COUNTERCLOCKWISE while
depressing the spindle lock button (Fig. 4).
NOTE: DO NOT DEPRESS LOCK BUTTON WHILE OPERATING DRILL or while the chuck is
moving.

Hi, Keyless chuck on my draper drill is jammed. How do i fix it?


I would use 2 pipe wrenches,put rags in the jaws and put the back wrench on a bench with the handle on the left side and the other on top of the chuck facing the same way as the other wrench.Now hold the top wrench and put enough pressure to keep the jaws locked.The wrenches should make a v.Tap the top wrench on the end of the handle.This will work for a chuck
that is jammed in the open position.Just reverse the wrenches to the other side for a closed chuck.You could use a vice and a pipe wrench.This works with chain lock vise grips.Use gloves and safety glasses.

My AEG 630 watt drill SBE630RX. The keyless chuck is seized and will not release drill bit. This is used on a regular basis if this is any help. Many thanks. Trev


The cover on the chuck must be removed by using a punch, tapping around the drill side. this will pop off the cover exposing the jaw's. then use a channel lock and or bench vice on wheel that surround's jaw's. if the chuck is no good it may have a left hand screw in the bore that must be removed to take chuck off.

Keyless chuck is stuck open


That can happen if the jaws inside the chuck, usually 3 triangular pieces get jammed together. With chuck facing down tap chuck several times to loosen jaws. If that doesn't work spray a small amount of WD-40 into chuck and try again

How are the jaws replaced in a keyless chuck?


They are not, you need to buy a new chuck. The tolerance is so close on the collar that you can't repair it. On some of the older keyed chucks you could but the jaws cost about as much as a new one.

Drill chuck swap


1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.
