Chuck is stuck and will not turn
I went to use my drill the other day and when I went to put a bit in the teeth, the chuck would not move. I could not get the teeth to move at all, and the chuck would not turn. I thought maybe it was just stuck and thought about putting something in there to loosen things up, but my father-in-law was afraid it might get into the electrical parts. Any information on how to get this unstuck would be helpful. Thanks!

This is a notorious problem, (you'd think RIDGID would have something on their website) but the solution is to slightly turn the rear collar to open then put a 7/8" wrench on the shaft behind the collar and finally, carefully turn the chuck CCW with a pair of pump pliers avoiding scoring it.
Doug.. GREAT... Did as you described and was able to open and close the chuck jaws.. so I can get a bit in and out.. Won't be needing to do much drilling so your help save me a bunch of $$$....
