Possible that the insulation of the heat was not protected well or that there is a misalignment of the burner in the oven /burner.
Please check carefully to ensure the fittings are in place and not heating the oven parts..

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.

Did not realize that burner was under the bottom of stove. Put in an aluminum drip pan on the bottom and turned ove n on for the first time. The pan is now melted to the bottom of my brand new oven. ...

Can you see that the pan has actually melted, or is it just stuck? Aluminum melts at over a thousand degrees, an oven only gets half that hot.
Try to pry it up with a putty knife.
Worse case scenario would be sanding it out with a rotary power sander after cutting as much out as possible with tin snips.

I would try a copper scouring pad.
Aluminium is very soft - Mohs hardness of 2.75
Copper has a Mohs hardness of 3, just slightly harder.
Ceramic tile has a hardness of 7
Mohs Hardness Scale

This means the copper scouring pad should be able to remove the melted foil without scratching the ceramic - but test first to be sure.

It is very difficult to melt Teflon; 326.8 degrees Celsius or 623.24 degrees Fahrenheit, hotter than most ovens! Rapeseed cooking oil will have long before caught fire.
Teflon is not used on oven floors, walls or racks.
The melting temperature of aluminium foil is 660 degrees Celsius (1,220 degrees Fahrenheit) at standard pressure, so it won't melt with temperatures encountered in a standard household oven!
Toxic fumes from the Teflon chemical released from pots and pans at high temperatures may kill pet birds and cause people to develop flu-like symptoms (called "Teflon Flu" or, as scientists describe it, "Polymer fume fever").

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.

Laid sheet of AL foil on bottom of oven to collect spills and ran over at 400 and foil melted and adhered to bottom of oven. How do I clean or replace bottom metal surface of oven?

This is not proven but worth trying. Get a can of "canned air" for removing dust from computers, etc at wallmart/staples whereever. Be careful because this following will get very cold and could give you frost bite. Place the straw in the spray head and turn it upside down then spray the melted aluminum foil, in 1 to 2 second bursts. Frost will appear on the melted aluminum. Keep spraying 3 to 5 times to make sure it is very cold. Then use a wooden spoon to scrape it off (you can press pretty hard without damaging the oven). The cold from the liquid air will cause one of the aluminum to contract faster than the steel and you may get it to pop apart and scrape the aluminum off. If it works a little, repeat as needed.

Good luck and please rate me.

Foil stuck to bottom of oven

A bit of chemistry first. Aluminum foil reacts to acid. A black substance referred to as aluminum salts is formed. This is simply wiped away. How quickly the foil is converted depends on the strength of the acid. Vinegar has a safe level of acid content. Within two hours, some aluminum salt should have formed. Wipe it away. Repeat. And keep repeating until all gone. Yes, the process takes time but you can be doing something else. And the salts are black, so you don't want your clothes or hands covered by the black. Expect this to take a long time. And you may get frustrated and decide to buy a new liner! But if you work at it long enough, it will remove the foil. You may be pickled by the end of the process but repetitions of this will remove the foil ... in good time ...with enough applications and wipings. And you haven't been exposed to fumes or effects of sodium hydroxide.
