  • Ridgid K6 stuck

    I used to think every homeowner should own a closet auger until tonights call. I showed up to find the k6 stuck in the siphon jet hole. Any ideas besides a hammer

        first shut off the water to the toilet and plunge out all the water in the bowl. try pouring liquid soap into the tank overflow to help lube the cable and china. then gently try to reverse spin the cable. might work?

          Thanks Rick. I will give it a try before he smashes it into a gazillion pieces

            It'll come out without smashing the bowl.

                I sorta chuckled when I read this until it happened to me today. Spun my auger in and it sort of hit something but passed all the way through.
                Kept spinning it and when I was pulling out it got stuck almost all the way out.

                I pulled and spun but to no avail. So I pulled the stool thinking it was hung up on the horn but no.

                With the stool off and the auger still stuck I could spin it all the way though and pull it both ways.
                WTF?

                So I got out my on sale $69.00 Harbor fright inspection camera and low and behold.
                A bright orange YO-YO.

                It won't let my auger get back so the hammer comes out tomorrow.

                Who wants a YO-YO?

                    had an auger get stuck once in a preschool/daycare center. there was always one little guy playing near the toity. The teachers couldnt figure out what he got in there. Pulled out the crappiest smelling plastic turkey complete with platter from a kitchen play set. I still have it someplace...and it still smells like poo.

                          Had a call yesterday for a Cobra brand toilet auger that was stuck in a toilet with the handle all the way down. After breaking off the handle trying to get it out (cheap POS) I pulled the toilet and the cable had bored a hole through the wax horn. It was a good 12" through the horn.
