Customer Question
We used aluminum foil...

We used aluminum foil on the bottom of our new range and it melted. There is about a 6"square of melted foil. How do we remove it?

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

Just today. It was the first time. We have not attempted to clean it.

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

Yes, if I can

Unfortunately, the foil has undergone a chemical reaction and bonded to the oven floor. It will not likely come off. However, there is something you can try. I have not tried it first hand and so I can not recommend it but simply make you aware of the process. See the link below.

The floor may be able to be replaced, too.

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
