My Milwaukee cordless hammer drill (Model LokTor 0624-20) suddenly
lost traction. The motor runs OK and I can hear the spindle spinning
as the motor turns, but the chuck will not engage the spindle. The
chuck does not respond to either forward or reverse. I tried
tightening the hex screw inside the chuck, but that did not fix the
problem. Does anyone have a repair suggestion?

Also check the clutch setting. Many have a setting where the chuck
won't turn unless pressure is applied to the chuck as when driving a screw.
It sounds like you broke the motor shaft. Take it to your nearest
Milwaukee Repair Center. Milwaukee discontinued their "limited lifetime
warranty" but if the tool shows no signs of abuse, they will repair it at no
charge or very little charge.
