How do you begin to clean a badly corroded oven and can it be possible to do so?
A badly corroded oven implies a probable safety issue. I would seriously consider replacement.
Corroded how? Can you post a photo? If it is just burnt crusty old food, it is salvageable - if anything else it just might need to be replaced. If budget is an issue, try second hand shops or most appliance stores have a "scratch and dent" section where you can find great deals.
I had one when we moved in. We removed it from the kitchen and I crawled inside it. First, scrape all baked on spills as much as possible. Then you can go with commercial products like easy off or you can do the baking soda & vinegar (lots of posts about it here) or try a marble paste. I've also seen video demos of Norwex oven cleaner, which I am tempted to purchase.
I would use a oven cleaner
What is the corrosion from? You could try using a hard rubber spatula to see if u can get some of it off
Then start spraying heavily with something like Easy Off. Leave it on longer than it says on the can
Try lightly scraping corroded areas w razor blade. Then East- off - fume free works well
Hi Donna, hope this information helps you get your oven sparkling clean. Good luck

Is this a cast-iron wood stove? You can use Rustoleum rust dissolver, a scraper, a wire brush on a drill, and steel wool to remove the rust. Then spray paint black with paint for stoves. Then finish off with Williams graphite stove black to prevent rusting and a nice water resistant finish.
I agree with Olivia. Unfortunately. If it's that corroded, it may not operate properly, and a replacement is best for safety.
Easy off oven cleaner left overnight would be your first clean. Then you will have to do it again. The gook will come off.
Thank you dear.
