How do you clean a convection oven with aluminum foil burnt at the bottom?

Hello,This is why we say no foil on the bottom...I would put it in self clean and see if it burns it off most of the time it will. You can take the two screws out of the back corners of the oven bottom and remove the bottom and soak it too. Hope this helps...Please rate me Thank You

I had foil in the bottom of my lg stove and the foil is now baked into the bottom of the pan, will vinger and baking soda get the foil off.

You may have had some sugary spill that has caused this to happen. If this is a self-cleaning oven, I would not put any chemicals of any kind on it and it is unlikely to free the foil. Try this: remove the oven racks, heat the oven to ~250F (120C) and keeping fingers away from the oven's interior, grasp the edge of the foil and lift it carefully. If it is glued from some sugary deposits, this should be hot enough to flow the deposit and allow you to remove it in part or completely. Good luck-

It appears to get to hot i put foil in bottom to

The manufacturers of most kitchen ranges recommend that you DO NOT put foil on the oven bottom. Although, you may have good intentions, it causes problems just like the one you mentioned. It can cause uneven heating, inaccurate oven temperatures, or an oven to become too hot. If this is an ELECTRIC range, it can even cause premature failure of the heating elements. In some cases, if the oven is too hot, the foil can become seriously affixed to bottom oven pan which becomes extremely difficult to remove. It is recommend that you routinely check the oven after each use, allow to cool and clean as necessary with an approved oven cleaner (yes, they even make these cleaners for self-cleaning ovens) to keep stains and spills to a minimum. If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I need to replace the oven bottom panel,aluminuim foil melted on bottom and I can't get it all out of oven bottom.

To all those who think this problem description couldn't be true, you're wrong. You're right that the aluminum did not get hot enough to melt though.....What happens is that the non-stick teflon coating they put on the aluminum get's too hot and bonds with the oven bottom.... like a crazy epoxy!

Furthermore, this isn't a problem in older, conventional-type ovens... this is moreso a problem with ovens that have a hidden bottom element.... The bottom element is actually directly below the oven bottom, and lining the oven bottom with foil is basically like putting it directly on the element. And that part gets extremely HOT!!!

Thankfully I've got the solution to this! But it takes some extreme patience, a lot of respect for what you're working with and some good ventilation.

I went back to my high school chemistry class to get the answer. It's Lye, aka Caustic Soda aka, Sodium Hydroxide.

I used Drano Kitchen Crystals off the shelf of the grocery's about 70% lye with some added salts to aid the chemical reaction.

You'll need some plasticene, the drano, water, GLOVES!!, a lot of paper towels and wood skewers and GOOD VENTILATION.

Start the ventilation and open a window or door.
Put on your gloves.
Use the plasticene to create a dam about .25"-.5" high around the area in the oven you're looking to remove the aluminum from... the area's you're working in should be about 2.5" in diameter.
Pour in some of the drano into the dam and add enough water to touch all the sides of the dam......if the chemical reaction hasn't started (should be almost instant) keep adding the drano bit by bit until it does... the dam contents will start to boil and ammonia fumes and a little hydrogen gas will form....... hence the need for some good ventilation!!
Once the reaction is done, poke around with the wood skewer to see if the oven bottom is clear... if you're satisfied with the results, add some some vinegar in to help neutralize the solution a bit.... then use the wood skewer to remove the plasticene dam to a dish to be rinsed off ASAP.
Use paper towels to wipe up the mess on the bottom of the oven.... See your results! the area of the oven botton you treated should be free of aluminum and just be discoloured instead..... not from the drano, but from where the teflon bonded.
Repeat the process until the oven bottom is clean.

To get a 'feel' for the chemical reaction and what to expect, experiment first!... take a square of aluminum foil, go to the backyard with the foil shaped in a littlebowl and place it on a dish or pan, add some drano crystals to it then add a little water... step back from the dish and try not to breath the fumes!.. the dish will be hot!!

It took me about 6 hr to clean the bottom of my oven when this happened to me.

Hopefully this helps some other poor unfortunate souls who finds themselves in this situation!

Foil is sticking to bottom of oven

pull off as much of the foil as you can and then spray the fringes of it with some oven off oven cleaner. Use rubber gloves as this is a strong chemical. Let it sit for thirty minutes and then pull off as much more foil as possible. Repeat until the bottom of the oven is clean.

Yes, we were a couple of dummys when we received our brand new LG stove, with convection oven,glass top and very fancy, and we put tin foil to cover the bottom of the stove and of course yesterday when I...

I really don't know what to tell you. During the clean cycyle the metal probably melted and is permantly sealed to the bottom. You are lucky the oven still works. Sometimes using foil will destroy sensors or other things. NEVER use foil in ANY oven!!!!! The only exception is to partially cover the shelf underneath something you know is going to make a mess. Even then don't cover more than about 60% of the rack.(Never do this in a convection oven as the fan will blow the foil ) Also NEVER!!! allow foil to come in contact with a hot burner. It will melt to the smooth top or coil.
