Self cleaning oven

I have a self cleaning oven (Kenmore, serial number NF90719809, Model No. 48133800. I have aluminum foil which appears to be fused to the oven surface. Will it be safe to run the self cleaning cycle? If, not, how do I repair this problem?
Thank you.

That first link for a previous answer that Pvalde2 posted in the above response provides good advice in your situation. I recommend that you remove as much of the foil as possible. You can use a Teflon scraper to help you remove the foil. Some foil will probably be left on the bottom panel. It does not appear that the bottom panel of this oven can be removed and replaced. Once you remove as much foil as possible, you can use the oven normally and you can run the self clean cycle. The self clean cycle will not burn off or remove that foil that is melted to the bottom panel. Although it looks bad, it will not affect the performance of the oven.
