The lye solution only works on build-up that has some grease remaining in it. If it has been reduced to just carbon, lye is ineffective. That's likely what you're experiencing here. Electrolysis may or may not work, either. If the lye has been partially effective to this point, leaving longer may help; it won't hurt.
