Need help, bit stuck in drill


I have the white makita power drill. I have a drill bit stuck in the drill right now. I can't loosen the chuck. I tried to loosen the chuck with an adjustable wrench, it didnt work.

I just wanted to know if theirs a trick to loosen the chuck.

Spray the chuck down with some penetrating oil and let it sit overnight then try again.

is this a drill/driver or a impact driver?

if its a impact driver tap the bit with a hammer a few times lightly it can loosen it up.. if its a driver bit something thats worked for me is to take a long screw and drive it into some 2x4's then back it out,, try the bit.. if its still stuck try it again in a new hole.. if that doesnt work sometimes clamping onto the bit with vise grips .. hold the vise grips and pull the drill trigger

a cone bit? you mean a countersink bit or a reaming bit for making holes larger in metal..

anyhow.. if you cant get it out take it to a power tool service center, they can get it out

It may help if you can whack the three jaws that hold the bit into the chuck, gently.
