Unfortunately there's no way to unclog the drains from underneath. You'll need to manually open the top, clear the drains, and then manually close it again. If you go to the Super Sticky and click on the Origami Problems thread you can down load trouble shooting guides that will detail how to release the top and storage compartment motors and latches and lower the top manually.
