Another possibility, could be if you had some crazy freeze thaw weather, whereas the leach field gets saturated, can't drain through. Its kind of an anomaly, happened here once, and its a large capacity system that has never even been used close to its potential. I think the top thawed, below it was froze, then it rained like heck, sure enough backed up, thankfully with such a large tank, got it pumped out, allowing plenty of time for whatever it was to correct itself and never happened again. I had to think about it, realizing eventually it was the darned weather !

If it's plastic about all you can do is pump hot water into the line. The bad part is the crap and water are going to flow out the opening until it clears. How you handle that, I don't know.
You could heat the ground above the pipe until it thawed, but again, it's going to take a long time and a lot of wood. Days I'm thinking. I've seen it done.

Thankfully the sewer decided to backup through the floor drain when the washing machine emptied. Don't know whether it was the styrefoam covering or warm water that cleared it.
