How to romove tin foil melted in self-clean oven?
« on: October 08, 2009, 10:05:44 AM »
I put aluminum foil on the bottom of my LG LRE30755ST oven to catch spills (big mistake by me!)  Now, large pieces of aluminum foil are melted/stuck on the bottom of the oven.

1.Does anyone know how I can remove the stuck-on foil?

2. If the foil can't be removed, can the oven interior be replaced?

Thank you,
McPhee

Spray some easy off oven cleaner on there to loosen up the crap and scrap the stuff with a putty knife.

Remove the oven racks. Set the oven for 500 degrees for about 45 minutes. Turn the oven off. Wearing a good oven mitt and armed with a 3 inch scraper,start scraping.
