Food fell into slits on bottom of range floor

I have a GE double oven freestanding range. A 3" or so piece of pizza crust broke off and fell into the slit in the bottom of the top oven that the flame comes through (actually the flame heat). When I turned the oven off, it continued to burn and there was nothing I could see to remove. I am thinking this is probably not a big deal and will burn away eventually. Is there anything I need to do? Do I need to figure out how to remove the floor of the oven and clean out beneath it?

It would be a good idea to lift the pan and clean underneath of it. Many are spring loaded where you push it towards the back, pick up the front and it comes right out. You can post the model number and I'll check further for you.

You gave me the group number. The missing number denotes that exact model.
I have 8 models to choose from.
There should be an ID plate visible at the front of the appliance. Could be behind a door or drawer.

Thanks. The link just below is the exploded view. I can't tell if there are screws holding down the cover. There may be one in each rear corner. Click on the diagram for an enlarged view.

In the following link.... it's a for a parts site and a video illustrating removal of the lower grate.
It's also representative as some panels have a screw or two in them while most don't.
