Dual sink - one with disposal ; one without. Drain without disposal fully clear and drains well. Drain with disposal clogs. Clears when I turned on the disposal. Now, the water does NOT drain even when disposal turned on. I have plunged drain, put ice cubes down drain; put draino down drain; removed plumbing for blockage, found no blockage; looked in the disposal in-line and found no blockage. Not sure what else to do ? Could it simply be a faulty disposal?

Possibly but if the plumbing under your sink is not clogged, the disposal should not be the issue. You may want to remove the disposal and see if there is a part blocking the opening or it is clogged itself. You most likely have a clog in the trap or somewhere in your plumbing if the other sink drains fine. Check this page to learn more…
