How to remove melted aluminum foil from the floor of the oven?

It is a Kenmore Electric Range model 790, was purchased and installed December 2008, just a little over 1 year ago. I have always used tin foil on the bottom of my ovens to help keep clean. Apparently we are no longer supposed to do that as I now see from the owners manual. It is stuck to the bottom of my oven. Please Help!!

Melted aluminum is extremely hard to remove from the floor of an oven. You may be able to carefully scrape off as much of the aluminum as possible using a straight razor blade. Take care to avoid cutting yourself with the blade if you try this procedure. A mild kitchen abrasive polish such as Bar Keepers Friend may help in the removal of some of the aluminum if your oven is not a self cleaning model.

Some of these Kenmore models of ranges have an oven floor that can be removed and replaced. Without the complete model number off of the range, I cannot determine whether your model has a removable oven floor.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with a complete model number off of the range. The model number plate on these types of Kenmore ranges is usually located on the base of the range just above the right front leveling leg. You will need to pull out the bottom drawer to see this plate.
