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.

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 tried concentrated sulfuric acid on the baked on aluminum foil and it didn't work after several minutes. Any other suggestions?


Whatever happened? H2SO4 seems a bit drastic. What is the foil stuck to? Won't soaking with hot washing up water remove it?

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.

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 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.
