SOURCE: Melted plastic lid in oven - how can I remove it

Any oven cleaner, like easy off will work on this but it may take more than one application. You can actually begin with your hair blow dryer and a putty knife by heating the plastic up enough to scrape most of it off. Then let the oven cleaner do the rest.

The plastic ties were left on the oven rack. One melted . How do I get the plastic off the bottom of a self cleaning oven?


Warm Method Both Good Housekeeping and the website Hunker describe this method for self-cleaning ovens. Hunker warns to NOT use the "cold method" which is reserved for other types of ovens. And the Good Housekeeping site says if the method proves unsatisfactory, that the floor or bottom plate of the oven might have to be replaced.

(That said, I suspect if you pull out oven racks and apply some ice to any plastic on it, the plastic might become brittle enough that tapping it with a spoon and prying at it with something wooden or finger nails might remove a lot of it. No scraping with the spoon!)

Here is the primary process for the oven.

Self-cleaning ovens require heat to remove the melted plastic. This method also works on heating elements with plastic on them. Step 1 Turn the oven on to the lowest heat setting. Only leave the oven on long enough to make the plastic soft and pliable.
Step 2 Scrape the melted plastic with a wooden utensil such as a spatula or spoon. The wood protects the surface inside the self-cleaning oven. When you get all off that you can, the self cleaning feature may burn off the rest. That WILL be smokey and exude an unpleasant smell while it does it. Open windows and keep pets out of the area (and yourself) while it goes through the clean cycle. Do NOT use a screw driver to try and remove the plastic.

Hello. look in the yellow pages of your phone book for appliance repair. Find a store that sells or repairs kitchen aid. There are several possible causes for the problems you site. Only a trained repairman with the proper scanners and tools can isolate and fix your oven.

Stove smokes when i turn the oven on


on the oven's smooth surface you should use a razor blade and scrap off the plastic (when cooled).. if the plastic melted on the burner, you may need to replace that particular element from a local appliance part store. easy to do.

Gas oven - - melted plastic inside


You can remove the bottom oven panel and look under it. All you have to do is remove the oven racks and locate the screws that hold the bottom panel in place. MOST ovens only have two of them. Once you have the crews removed, the panel slides back a bit, then lifts up. If there are any heavy deposits of melted plastic, remove it like you did before. Any residual material can be taken off with some fine emery paper. Wear a dust mask and vacuum all the dust out of the oven. DO NOT use this method on the oven wall as it may scatch it. This is only for anything that may have dripped below the oven pan. You may have an odor to the oven for a while, but as long as you have nothing else melted inside this should go away. Try running it on a cleaning cycle AFTER you've inspected the oven & cleaned out the remaining plastic. This will burn off anything left behind. I hope this helps you.
