Yes usually you have to put a allen wrench in the jaws of the chuck tighten it and hit it with a hammer to unscrew it.

How do you remove or reset a stuck drill chuck

If it is a reversible drill there is almost certainly a left-handed thread screw or allen bolt through the centre of the chuck into the drill shaft and this must be removed before the chuck can be removed.

If it is a keyed chuck select low gear if there is one, fit the chuck key and then strike it sharply with a hammer to jar the chuck in an anti-clockwise direction. Usually it takes only a couple of blows before the chuck is loosened.

Keyless chucks are more problematic. I hold them in a vice and use the drill in reverse which has proved fairly successful, though sometimes the chuck is only fit for scrap afterwards.

Lots of the keyed chucks can be taken apart for cleaning and lubricating if necessary.

How can I remove the chuck?

Most drills have a chuck that screws on to a threaded shaft that extends inside the motor. Repair shops know how to "freeze" that shaft so it will not turn, allowing you to unscrew the chuck. One model of drill has a tiny hole that you insert a nail into to remove the chuck.

How do I get the chuck off a hole hawg drill if shaft keeps spinning due to broken shaft

I'm not sure about that specific tool, but usually a keyed (or keyless) Chuck has a screw hidden inside of it. Open the Chuck all the way, and shine a light in. You should see a screw down there. It'll be left hand thread (clockwise to loosen). Remove this screw, and then get the biggest Allen wrench you have, and lock the short end of the allen wrench into your chuck so it acts like a lever handle. Use a hammer to whack the Allen wrench with one swift blow to break the threads loose that hold the chuck on. You may need to find a way to hold onto the shaft to keep it from spinning. This might involve removing the case to find a purchase to hold onto with some locking pliers. If the shaft is completely broken, and loose from the drill, stick it in a vice to hold before trying to remove the screw, and the chuck.

Try googling "removing drill chuck", and you should find some comprehensive videos on the subject.

Good luck.

If you need more help, post some photos of what you're working with, and I might be able to give you a better answer.

I have a Metabo KHE-D24 with a SDS plus key less chuck, how do you remove this style of chuck?

Look at the drive shaft under the base of the chuck and look for flats on the shaft or a nut. Hold this and use a pair of multi grips on the chuck to unscrew it from the shaft. Or place a bolt in the jaws if they still work and place the bolt in a vice and undo the shaft off the chuck

How do I change the chuck on my milwaukee right angle 1/2" drill? It has snapped off behind the chuck

Take digital photos when taking the front metal gear box off the drill. Next carefully remove the two plastic halves of the drill if needed to gain access to the shaft that holds the chuck.
Replace the broken threaded metal part that the chuck screws onto.
Normally chuck replacement involves unscrewing the small screw deep inside the chuck on a metal shaft has a left hand thread. Next use a large allen wrench tightened in the chuck with a mallet to loosen the bad chuck. Reverse to install new chuck.

Need to replace chuck

Not entirely familiar with this model but most chucks are secured by a screw inside the chuck. Open the the chuck to its fullest aperture and look inside. There should be a centre screw ... it will be a left hand thread. Remove the screw. Hold the chuck firmly, reverse the drill. The chuck should unscrew from the shaft. Installation is a reversal of the removal procedure.

Can't remove the chuck on a drill.

There are one-way (non-reversible) and two-way (reversible) drills. Mine is one-way. Methods for chuck removal are different for these two types.
Procedure for one-way (non-reversible) drills:
Drills of this type have no chuck screw, so one have to hold the spindle with a wrench, than to sharply strike the wrench with a hammer to spin it off.
Procedure for two-way (reversible) drills:
Open the chuck up and in the bottom is a screw that holds the chuck on the shaft.The screw turns in a clock wise motion to be removed and then you can top the chuck off the shaft.

Keyless chuck

You will find a screw inside the chuck that needs to come out first of all but beware that it will be a reverse thread. This is to stop it loosening whilst in use. then you will need to unscrew the chuck but it isn't easy as you have to hold the shaft that the chuck is attatched to. You can sometimes take the chuck off by holding it and pulling the trigger while in reverse. (but they can be stuck fast).
