Question about Kenmore 47783 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

I have aluminum foil stuck to the bottom of my oven. Can it be removed? Is it all right to use the oven now? It is a self-cleaning oven, but I do not generally use that feature, but should I try that?

    It was a feasible idea, but the foil is still stuck. Thanks anyway.

For the aluminium we suggest first to try to remove it or at least the major part of it with other ways than self cleaning mode. On good way is put is a bake pan water and bake it at 250-300 degrees for 30 minutes. After this the foil will be much easier to be remove maybe part by part is the best way to remove it, you can try to use a little Cif also this will help.

Self cleaning is best for all kinds of fats. The foil is very high temperature it can become one part with oven and stay there forever, some parts of foil will be remove by their self but even one or two permanently spots is not a good idea.

Hello Wendy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You can try to use a putty knife.

When your oven goes into the self cleaning model, you are burning off grease. The burning off of aluminum foil is nothing compared to burning off the grease.

You may see some small flame. But, this will soon pass. Your cleaning cycle can handle this without causing any damage.

With the older models of self-cleaning ovens one could put aluminum foil on the bottom tray of the oven, but with the newer models there is a warning (hidden in the last line) of your booklet for models of stoves where aluminum foil should 'not' be used! Even though print in small and many consumers are complaining regarding their stoves and melted aluminum stuck to the bottom tray of their oven (nothing will get it off) all manufacturer do 'not' cover this problem under warranty and thus, it will cost you $44 to buy a new tray. You unscrew the two screws to the bottom of the damaged tray of your oven and then install the new one and put back the screws. Letters of complaint should be written to the manufacturers to have them put this warning in clear bold print right on the front cover of the instruction brochure.

I have baked on aluminun foil on the bottom of my self clean oven did the cycle to self clean and the aluminum foil is still stuck on the bottom what can I do to remove it without ruining the surface


If the bottom of the oven is enamelled or has a pyrolytic self cleaning surface then you can use caustic soda to remove aluminium foil.

Many oven and hob cleaners contain caustic soda and those which do always advise that it's kept away from aluminium parts precisely because of it's effectiveness in turning aluminium into grey foamy goo!

If you're in doubt as to whether your oven floor is caustic soda resistant then try a small test patch first.

Please note that caustic soda is extremely corrosive so you'll need to keep your hands and arms covered and preferably use eye protection as well.

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)
