Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Did you clean out the trap? Taking the drain connection apart at the disposal can also help since a clog can develop there too. If you're sure the drain is clean between the disposal and where you inserted the snake then you should try a power snake. They can be rented at most tool rental outlets. Be sure you get a sink drain snake lik in the pic not one for a larger drain line. This means a machine with a 1/4" or 3/8" cable

It is clean from the disposal the elbow below; I have a snake (Like in the picture) and ran it from the elbow to about 3 feet into the pipe. I have done the steps a few times

Then the blockage is probably further down the line. You need to play the snake out all the way (25' is the typical length of the snake in machines like the one in the pic)to be sure you've snaked the drain all the way to the main.

The clog was further down the pipe past the capability of my 25 footer; paid rooter rooter to get it done. Your advice confirmed the limitation my capability. too bad it cost me $32

Well we gave it our best shot. If you don't think my time and expertise was worth the expense then contact customer service for a refund. But if you don't think my effort was worthless I'd appreciate a favorable rating.
