I've never done this, but I would normally say yes, it's not going to be easy, especially if you've never done it, but depending on what you have to replace, it might not be as bad as you think. Here is Sear's site with diagrams of your oven:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Electrolux-Parts/Wall-oven-Parts/Model-EW30EW65GS5/1412/0125300?pathTaken=
In the diagrams, the upper oven should have the parts you need. Not having the oven in front of me, I'm unsure of the exact part you're going to replace, but these diagrams should give you the part number, and hints as to taking the unit apart.
A service manual would be helpful, but perhaps you won't need one if you study the diagrams well. Sears might have the manual available, if you need it. Here is Sear's support site, where you can chat with a tech, if you have to. They often know the answer:

Good luck, hope this helps you, and thanks for using FixYa.

Mistakenly placed foil on bottom of oven. Pulled out foil and noticed minor damage to lining. What is the impact of this and does it need to repaired or replaced


Other than the appearance of the bottom liner I don't think you did any other damage. You probably just melted some of the foil to the liner. Just keep and eye on it the next few times you bake something. If for some reason the liner coating starts to come off more every time you use the oven---then it probably will need fixed. This would require replacing the complete oven liner if the bottom is not removable as a single part.

MELTED ALUMINUM FOIL ON BOTTOM OF OVEN FLOOR: Have a Kenmore ceramic smooth top range. We placed a piece of aluminum foil on the very bottom of the oven as we like to bake our pizza on the rack but...


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.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardnesses_of_the_elements_(data_page)
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.

I have a Kenmore self cleaning oven with foil liner burned on!


Hi Leia, Unfortunately, the aluminum actually melted and adhered. The only perfect fix is to buy a new bottom piece for the oven, it costs about $30.00 and it is very easy to remove the old and install the new. Just a few screws.

You can get the part directly from sears by going to sears.com

Aluminum foil stuck to new oven bottom - how to remove


(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)

Melted aluminum foil


Hi there,

Steel wool is the best bet, but it would be easier to replace the floor panel. I had a customer do the same thing. depending on how bad it is replacement mat be a easier option, about $35 for the new panel, and about a month to get the part. two screws on the floor of the oven next to the back wall. The manual does say not to use foil on the oven floor.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven


Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You WILL damage the panel. The only option you have is to replace the panel or the entire oven liner...

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven


Use "The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner" to dissolve the foil. *Caution* when the cleaner is applied to the foil a chemical reaction occurs releasing some harmful fumes so please use outside or in a well ventilated area. I just did this to a Frigidaire oven I bought from Lowes at a discounted price. The previous owners bought it, did not read the owners manual or just disregarded the warnings on using foil in the oven and thought they would line the bottom pan with foil to help make it easier to clean (Good idea, but don't try it on the hidden element ovens). With the heating element being hidden under the drip pan the heat is hot enough to melt the foil and fuse it to the pan. Now most of the pans on these ovens are removable by just a couple of screws and I strongly recommend removing the pan when doing this. Squirt some Works toilet bowl cleaner on it in a well ventilated area and watch it go to work. It took about 15 minutes for it to dissolve all the foil on my oven, then I rinsed it clean and reinstalled it in the oven. The pan does have a slight discoloration on it, not from the cleaner but from the foil being melted onto the pan, if you choose you can buff this out. Most of the modern ovens have the ceramic coated drip pans in them so the Works toilet bowl cleaner will not harm them, unless you have scratched the finish off. Works Toilet bowl cleaner contains a fair amount of hydrochloric acid which is what makes this work so well.
