    If this tool has a high and low setting make sure that it is fully engaged if not it will react as you describe, but there still could be some other problems with the gearbox

Makita cordless drill


It sounds to me like the clutch is set to a low setting. Its the dial just behind the chuck with the numbers on it, you can turn it to adjust how easily the drill slips, the purpose of it is to make it easy not to strip screws or drive them in too far. Just turn it to a higher number or all the way and it should work fine. The setting its on is whichever number is on top of the drill (opposite the handle), there should be a little arrow on the body of the drill pointing to it. The highest setting will not be a number but an image of a drill bit, in this setting it will not slip at all. Some of these drills are also hammer drills (as the drill turns, the chuck will also "hammer" in the direction your drilling, this is for drilling into concrete and things like that and requires a special bit (if your drill has that there will be an image of a little hammer on the dial next to the image of the drill bit). I hope that helps, Good luck.

Keyless chuck is stuck with bit inside I can't turn it counter clockwise to unlock I have a Makita 6349d drill


Try two channel lock pliers.
Hold the bit close the the base with one.
Take the other (cloth comes in handy here to prevent marring) and turn the chuck counter clockwise to release.

Alternative (little WD40 on the chuck)
One channel lock plier hold the chuck and put the drill in reverse.
The WD40 should allow the chuck to release easier.

Good luck!

Chuck jaws on Makita 8444D fell out


There is suppose to be a flat head Left hand thread chuck screw in there. It may have fallen out. You will not be able to put the jaws back into the chuck. You will have to replace the chuck with a new one. If you make sure that the chuck screw is not there you can remove the chuck with a couple of steps. Make sure the drill is in it's lowest gear. Use a strap wrench or some large vise grips on the chuck. If there is still one jaw in the chuck make sure it is all the way open and locking the collar to the chuck. The chuck will come off in the regular lefty loosey configuration. It may be stubborn. If this is the case, You may have to cut the collar off the chuck and use a pipe wrench. Or bring it to a professional to get it changed out.

Struggling to remove chuck from makita 84444d


K what you need to do is remove the chuck retaining screw LH threads and then switch the gear selector to low and the clutch to drill only. Find a bent handle allen wrench about the chuck capacity and lock it in the jaws. put the chuck on a workbench or block of wood and on the long part of the wrench have it at about a 30 degree angle and strike it counter clockwise and that should remove it. you might have to hit it a couple times

Can't remove the chuck retaining screw.


Place drill in vice with chuck in vice facing up . Clamp chuck lightly but with enough force to hold firmly.
put allen wrench in chuck and lightly tap down to make good fit to allen screw head.Clamp chuck jaws down onto allen wrench lightly to hold wrench steady. Take piece of pipe to end of wrench,10".
These chuck screws are tight. Hammer clockwise until screw brakes loose.Open chuck completely and remove screw.Chuck is threaded to spindle shaft . Place allen wrench with long end facing out of tool in chuck and tighten chuck securely. With hammer tap allen wrench sharply counter clockwise ( normal thread.)

Damaged chuck


Grasp chuck, reverse it until fully open. Look inside where bit goes and should be an allen head or torque head screw holding chuck to motor arbor/shaft.

Clutch slipping on cordless drill. need spare parts to repair.


Are you sure you do not have a tourque adjustment problem. If not I do not believe Makita will want to send you parts,you would have to know what is precisely wrong and by the time you went back and forth you might as well find nearest dealer for repairs and google search Makita.com for service parts near you + zip code to get your drill fixed.

Thanks , Please rate jj505
