Your chuck is held onto the motor shaft by a screw located inside the chuck. This screw has loosened and requires tightening. This screw has reverse threads and in order to tighten it, you need to turn the screw in the opposite direction or in oither words, in the reverse direction.

The chuck on my new makita drill is stuck with a drill bit in it. It won't open back up.


This is caused by tightening the chuck using the drills power, if you clamp the bit in a vice and using a pair of multi grips on the chuck in an anti clockwise direction gently bounce the grips and after a few tries it will undo, don't use too much pressure or try to unwind it in one move or myou will damage the chuck sleeve

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.

Bit tighten stuck open


If you mean the chuck jaws seem stuck open, spray around them with some penetrating oil or spray like WD-40, RP-7 or similar and let sit for a couple hours... Then you can tap around the chuck body with a light hammer or spanner etc... just lightly tap... Then if the chuck has an arbor lock to prevcent it from spinning, be sure that is engaged then try to release the chuck jaws. Sounds like they are stuck open through tight friction or rusting on the inside edges (that you dont see). Be careful not to leave them in the fully open position when stored as this is exactly what can happen!

My rattle gun 18V LXT Impact Driver BTD141 has a double ended Philips stuck in it? how do i get it out?


There are a couple of ways to try to free the bit from the drill chuck. But slow and steady is the key, don't hit anything too hard, so as to not damage the chuck in the process, nor break off the bit in the chuck.

You'll need to put the bit into a bench vise and reverse the drill slowly and carefully. Make sure the bit is tightly secured in the vise and that the drill won't spin your hand around and slam it into the bench when you pull the trigger.

As a last resort, you can try tapping the bit sideways, to get it loose. With chuck opened up all the way possible, gently tap the bit sideways. This should also free the bit, but be very careful not to snap the bit off in the chuck, or you'll have a worse situation trying to get a broken bit out of the chuck.

If none of these work, you can attempt to secure the stuck bit in the bench vise and try to tap the drill chuck using a hammer and a flat brass bar resting against the drill chuck, so you don't damage the chuck. Just tap the brass bar to drive the chuck free of the stuck bit. You have to watch the bit in the vise to make certain it's not slipping and that the chuck is getting free.

Hope you find this Very Helful and best regards!
