Did the cable snap or just wind up? If it wound up, run the snake in reverse while pulling on the cable. If your manufacturer makes a "retriever" head for you cable that may engage the snake and let you pull it out, assuming it is not stuck too badly at the other end.
: HELP!!!! Lost cable from sewer machine in pipes. From what I can figure out is the cable hit the cast iron pipe at which point cable began to twist out of control and the next thing I new the cable came flying out of the drum and is lodge in the pipe. How can I retreive cable without having to dig pipe up. Please tell me this has happen to someone other then me..
