Customer Question
Hi my name is*****...

Hi my name is***** . I messed up one of my heating elements on my stove. I put a plastic cookie container on a burner that was on. Can you tell me how to remove the plastic residue?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Several weeks. I have not used the burner since.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depending on how it is to be done.
