As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.

Try beating on the side of the chuck with a rubber mallet and then try and close.

If you go to dewaltservicenet.com you can enter your model number to see the parts breakdown. It can be tricky to get the retainer clip off and on but the rebuild of the bit holder is easy other than that. The spring and the steel ball are all that usually need to be repalced. Hope that helps.

what you need to do is remove the quick release mechanism. there is a retaining ring DO NOT STRETCH then a small flat washer and spring lift the collar and there are usually 2 small steel balls. then using a magnet you should be able to remove bit. this works only if the shank on the bit is not twisted.

try another battery. If it still doesn't work it's either the switch or the motor. You can take it apart and hook the motor directly to the battery. If it runs the switch is likely bad. If not the motor is bad. Since it doesn't have servicable brushes you replace the motor. Be careful when you take it apart because the switch is static sensitive and you could damage it! Do the work at a static sensitive station.

It only accepts 1/4" hex shank bits and nut drivers. Mine just pops in and to release it, you push the black collar around the bit down. Cannot put round end bits in it. Only hex shanks

On this particular tool, you can't really tighten the bit in the anvil like a bit in a drill chuck. The bit is free floating but held in place by a small steel ball. The steel ball is held in place by the sleeve that slides up and down to release the ball so the bits can be changed. The sleeve is held down by a spring. Bits falling out can be caused by: Using bits without the groove in the bottom of them for the ball to catch in, dirt in the bottom of the anvil so the bit can't seat properly, the ball is missing or stuck, the spring is broke or binding, or the sleeve is bent or too dirty to slide up and down freely. Use compressed air to clean the anvil well and WD40 to clean and lube it further. If bits still fall out you'll have to take it apart and see if the ball, spring or sleeve need to be replaced.
