FWIW, you might try a blast of compressed air to clean out. The only issue there is if it cut off (valve closed). Then of course a blast of pressure would not be good. I realize that this doesn't help you find the hose, sorry. best

Mine drains into the bilge. Sometimes a small plunger working the icebox drain works. Other times I've put the end of a small hand pump/bilge pump into the end of the hose and used suction to pull the blockage through.

Thanks for all your help. Problem solved. It does indeed drain into bilge not sink drain hose. Previous owner capped off drain hose.

My F36 came to me with the icebox draining into the bilge. I soon sealed it and pumped the ice box into the sink with a small pump. This reduced the smells from food particles being flushed into bilge.
