        Hello
        Is your oven drawer a black hole where cookie sheets and other items exist is utter mess. Then something slides behind the drawer and can't open it any more cuz something is stuck back there ?
        Any ideas on how to remedy this

        See if you can slide a yardstick or a thin piece of metal (maybe a curtain rod or metal yardstick) over the drawer to catch and push down whatever is getting stuck. More than likely, it's sticking up and catching above the drawer as you pull it out so keep the drawer as closed as possible.

        Just a thought that a wire coat hanger pulled long with the hook left on might work. Handy little tool!

        You might also be able to use a grabber to pull out the hiding cookie trays. I'm thinking of the grabbers used as assistive devices.

        That magic solution usually works for me as well, on a multitude of projects.

        To the OP's problem. I usually shift the drawer back and forth to see if I can get whatever is hung to drop down so I can open the drawer. The long term solution, once you get it open is to remove a few things. In our case it was a seldom used broiler pan. We store a pan lids in the drawer under the oven. Without the broiler pan I haven't had it hang up at all.
