  • bt dummy Jan 21, 2008

    I'm going to see if i can get it covered by warrenty the alum is like inbeaded in the bottom of the oven

  • foiled Mar 30, 2008

    I did the same thing. I have tried soap and water and trying to scrape it off, but to no avail. I would like to know if bt dummy was able to get this covered under the warranty and the outcome, It says in the instructions to not use aluminum foil, I did not read the instructions first. Help it is a new oven, and I don't know if I can just go ahead and use it if I can not get it covered under warranty.

    the foil stuck in the oven

    I have the foil stuck to the oven...I called Sears and they said it would eventually wear off using the self clean function but it would take awhile. I don't believe you are supposed to use oven cleaner but I haven't seen any for self-clean ovens.

    You can get a replacement panel for about $45.00 (at least for the model I have).

What i suggest to another customer is to get some of that new easy off that's made for self cleaning ovens and soak it in that for awhile the customer never respond back so i didn't know if it worked now as far as getting i cant say only as the foil is not a warranty issue you really don't need it in a self cleaning oven

    well i wouldnt think so there is supposed to be a special coating on the oven that protects it from extreme heat now if it does that might be a warranty issue requiring replacement if you get my meaning now the foil itself is not stuck but rather something is sticking id try it please let me know what happens as i can help others and thanks for the info on the easy off now i know id clean it at this stage of the game ya got nothing to loose if anything happens just cancel the self clean and leave the door closed but i don't see a problem

(Wear a professional n95 mask and rubber gloves). Use a straight razor and scrape off as much foil as possible. Get a hold of Mercuric or sulfuric acid. BE CAREFUL not to spill anywhere, work close to a stainless steal sink. Poor a little in a small glass container and bring over stove porcelain surface. Pour the acid onto the foil and wait 3-4 minutes, use paper towel to wipe off the acid, and then a soapy wet rag. Repeat process until all foil is dissolved. Then wash surface thoroughly and repeatedly with a soapy dish towel. Once complete run water in the sink for 5 minutes till any possible remaining accid is flushed from the sink. The foil is gone and the porcelain is preserved. Works great! (Don't breathe the fumes and ventelate the area or move the stove outside)

I had used foil for years in the past to catch drippings so I was very surprised and shocked when the foil stuck to the bottom of my new oven. I used The Works toilet cleaner to removed the foil. I removed the panel and took it outside to avoid the fums. I poured the cleaner and left it to soak, which was time consuming. I used a plastic scraper to scrape off the residue as it very slowly desolved. It took a good 2 hours of waiting and scaping, but it did worked. There will be some dark areas showing where the foil was. Follow with hot soap and water.

I used an aluminum drip pan at the bottom of my wall ovens.
When removed I found the aluminum had stuck to the bottom of each oven. All help would be appreciated.

Melted aluminum foil on inside of stove bottom how do we get it off?


Cynthia,
I would suggest using something wooden so that you do not damage the surface of the oven. You could try a wooden dowel that you cut at an angle so that you have a point. Also, most manufacturers do not recommend putting aluminum foil under the elements or on any of the racks. One of the things that can happen is what has happened to you and it also can cause premature failure of the heating element if you put it under the heating element. The same goes with putting foil in the drip pans, not a good idea. Hope this helps!

Single element stove oven, doesn't get hot enough


Your oven probably has a feature called a hidden bake element. The element is located beneath the floor of the oven. (Because of this, NEVER put aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven because it will get hot enough to melt the aluminum foil and make it bond to the bottom of your oven.) You can adjust the temperature of your oven through the electronic oven controls. Check your owner's manual for how to do this.

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

Aluminum foil melted to bottom of oven. how can I


If the foil is melted to the bottom, most oven liners are porcelain, so it will probably scrape off fairly easy. You want to try something non-metallic first. If you need to use something metallic to scrape it off be very careful not to scrape or chip the porcelain, you might try a scraper used to clean glass top cooktops. Remember porcelain is glass, so make sure you wear eye protection.

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 store..it'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!

I did that, too. Self cleaning won't help. You need to replace the bottom pan. Around $20 I think.
