      Would pouring some kind of lubricant in the line help?
      Like a big cheap container of vegetable oil?
      Then repeatedly gently pushing and retracting the auger until it got around the bend.
      I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

        NO!

        Is this a hand auger or electric? How long?

        In any event, if the cable is not oversize for the pipe, pushing while turning should get it around the bend.

          No advice from me. Sorry.

          A homeowner just posted where they broke an auger. The title insinuated that the "auger cost them $1200.00".

          Might want to call a recommended plumber or professional drain person in your area. Ask friends and co-workers for recommendations.

          Good luck.
