I have a GE oven. I placed aluminum foil on the bottom of it and it melted onto the bottom surface. Is there a good way to get this off?

Thanks, Rick.

repairguy :

You are not going to like my answer to this question. About the only chance you have is to use easyoff oven cleaner, and a light scouring pad. Aluminum foil melts and bonds itself to the porcelan bottom. Take your time and I wish you all the luck.

JACUSTOMER-2nzmlgl1- :

You're right. That doesn't promising. Thanks.

repairguy :

As a tech you see this about once a year, usually closer to the holidays. How do I deserve a poor rating? I did not melt the aluminum foil, nor is it my fault it will not come off.

You asked a question and I gave you a honest answer.
