How to fix the garbage disposal??

How do I unclog the garbage disposal? We've tried the allan wrench, broom handle, hot water, ice cubes, vinegar and baking soda, etc.

In short, we've tried everything we can think of and are about to pay the big bucks to call a plumber.

When we used the allan wrench, it made the blades squeak- don't know if that means anything. I think it got jammed from some fibrous substance (juniper incense). The allan wrench turned freely, but it was just squeaky...

I would be so grateful for your advice. Thank you.
