  • R7000 Chuck problems

    I have a 3 month old R7000 corded 3/8" drill. Drill's great, but the chuck has been sticking ever since the 3rd or 4th use. Chuck locks up in a very loose setting, and I can only loosen by either using the torque of the motor or a wrench to forcibly get it past a stuck point (with a discouraging "click, click, click" as I force it through that stuck point) before it will spin freely again. I'm concerned that if I keep this up, I'm going to break something. Suggestions?

    Also - why doesn't anything come up on the Ridgid website when you search for R7000, and why aren't there any 3/8" drills listed in the power tools section? Is the product discontinued?
