Sometimes they do get stuck and you will need some other measure to open it, may need to use a vice and/or hammer,or a big plier...But this means also that it needs a bit of oil in it just to break the dirt causing this to stuck..You may need to give it a few shock with a hammer,not to break it but enough for the shock on it...This normally works..

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.

Hi Ken, sadly it sounds like the chuck is past its best. The cogs inside the chuck have most probably worn. If you can get the chuck off try clamping it in a vice and use some pump pliers to undo it. Failing that you will need a new chuck which you may be able to get at a good diy store.

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.

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.

A bit is stuck in the chuck of my Bosch drill


Hello. Wrap a towel around the chuck and use a pipe wrench or a pair of channel locks to put a little force on the chuck. J.

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!

Black decker drill keyless chuck won.t open !


hold the back of the chuck with channel locks or a vice and use the same channel locks on the front and open the chuck manually it should work and you can get to the screw to replace it or the hand chuck. this can be a little frustrating but hang in there and you'll be a pro shortly.

How to unlock the chuck


this how to get a chuck off a drill.look inside the chuck for a screw. it will be a left handed screw.once you get the screw out put the chuck in a vice . you will need to squeeze it very tight. then put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger.if i wont come off you will need to hit the chuck with a hammer while you are holding the trigger. if you have a bit stuck in the chuck and cant get it out put the chuck in the vice and hit it very hard with a hammer until the chuck falls apart.i work on drills every day ,this is the only way we have found that works
