1How do I remove small pieces of aluminum foil which are stuck to the bottom of my oven? 2 If I can't remove the small amounts of alum. foil, Will still be able to use the self-cleaning feature?


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.

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

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 am having the same problem that many others are. My screen went blank and when the buttons are pushed they just beep. This sounds as if it is some sort of malfunction within the circuit board? I plan to...


It is and you are doing what you should. We know that a lot of these problems are being caused by the heat from a self-cleaning cycle rising up into the circuit board. I get a lot of these problems right after someone self-cleaned their oven, although it can fail completely months after the cleaning cycle damaged the board. So in the future try and use the self-clean cycle very sparingly and set the timer to clean for only two hours if it will allow it. My best advice is to not use the self-cleaning clycle, use aluminum foil in the oven floor, and hand clean the door and walls as you use it. Do not use oven cleaner on this as most of the cleaners will damage the self-cleaning oven liners. Change the aluminum foil when it gets dirty and never self clean with the aluminum foil in the oven. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

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.

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

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