Can you reach up into the drawer from the bottom/back? There is enough space
behind my kitchen drawers to get a hand in there... Also, if they are old
built-in-place cabinets you may be able to get into the drawer by removing
the drawer(s) next to the problem drawer.
Keep fiddling with it. Shake it back and forth or reach under and
knock on it. If no partition, open the drawer next to it and slide a
ruler or similar object over it.... or if you can get your hand in
behind it do the sam.
Shaking and banging have always gotten them open for us.
GET VIOLENT before you spend a bunch of cash.

a bit of shaving with a block plane at the edge... my
knife drawer needs this, come to think of it. And sock
In short, we ALL have bad habits; fixing the woodwork is
easier than fixing the population.
