Force Service Fabric application delete

Usually you can easily delete an application from your Service Fabric cluster using the cluster explorer. However, there are times when this doesn't work - this may happen if one of services breaks and it can't heal itself.
In such situation you can use following PowerShell script to force the delete operation:
Connect-ServiceFabricCluster -ConnectionEndpoint <your-cluster-connection-endpoint>
$nodes = Get-ServiceFabricNode
foreach($node in $nodes)
    $replicas = Get-ServiceFabricDeployedReplica -NodeName $node.NodeName -ApplicationName "fabric:/Your-App"
    foreach ($replica in $replicas)
        Remove-ServiceFabricReplica -ForceRemove -NodeName $node.NodeName -PartitionId $replica.Partitionid -ReplicaOrInstanceId $replica.ReplicaOrInstanceId
