CONTROL PANEL ABOVE OVEN VENT DISCOLORED, LOOKS BURNT
COULD THE VENT BE PARTIALLY BLOCKED, THE MORE I USE THE OVEN, THE MORE SCORTCHED THE PANEL LOOKS. A NEW CONTROL PANEL IS ONLY $40, BUT I AM AFRAID THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN. POOR DESIGN OR REPAIRABLE PROBLEM?

One thing to check is the power where it plugs in to the wall. Remove plug and look at male blades on plug. See if any are discolored or burnt looking. If any are replace the cord on stove and have the plug in wall replaced too. If they are discolored or burnt you must replace both parts. You also try to jiggle plug around while it's plugged in to see if that has any effect.
If everything seems ok at outlet, UNPLUG UNIT and remove cover over terminals where line cord connects to stove. Check for burnt terminals ans burnt wires. Also make sure screws are tight.

cold air from the fan forced element area in the oven? or from the air vent just above the door? if its from the air vent then this is normal if your oven senses the outside cabinet is getting to hot it will bring on the fan and if its still to hot after u turn it off the fan will continue as its circuit doesnt run through the control knobbs meaning it wont turn off with the oven its controlled via a overload thermostat so the fan will remain on til it gets within its acceptable temp range and the thermostat will cut power to the fan, if it remains on for hours and hours or even days you will be looking at a new thermostat (cheap as dirt like only a few bucks) or worst case a controller
You do not list a model and serial number, but I suspect your model is one which needs to have the oven vent and keypanel changed. Some models had an oven vent which was too large, which caused vapor from the oven to get into the key panel, resulting in your problem, and also some discoloration of the backsplash on the left hand side. The replacement vent has a narrower opening, which forces the vapor further out away from the keypanel.

sorry but you wont be able to remove the "stain" what has happend is the paint used by maytag has become discolored from the oven vent heat and the only way to correct it is to replace the panel. they are available but for about 80 bucks. you could try to paint the panel but it will do it again.
