The outlet of that is blocked and you will need to physically clean out the blockage. To get to the underside of this you can try reaching in from the opening and if that is too tight for you then remove the screws at the back that go into the top thru each of 2 brackets and pull the whole top forward about an inch and then you can lift up the top to get at it.
