I have a desk drawer that I need to get into but it only opens and inch. I had a lot of stuff packed inside, I'm not sure if something is jammed.
Open it so it jams then back it off a bit, so whatever is causing the jam is not stuck. Then using a ruler, piece of cardboard, or other flat object, work it into the gap so it rests above the drawer contents and presses down on them (or just guides them) to free them from the drawer or frame above.
I solved my problem by emptying the hutch with the stuck drawer of everything in the lower cabinet & removing the shelf unit that rested on the hutch. Then I 'man handled' the unit, left, right, back & forward until the obstruction ( a picture frame!) became loosened. The other solutions were not right for my particular problem. Whew!
