Perhaps the door gasket is not sealing well enough. In self clean mode the oven get very hot and vaporizes the fat off the sides. With a leak I think some of the fat is redepositing on on the outside where the leak is. You may need a new door seal.

Hello- The self-clean cycle heats the inside up to about 800deg. There is no existing plastic that can take the heat at the vent w/out discoloring. The stain is from the smoke produced when the stuff on the drip pan incinerates. Try some oxy-clean and a damp cloth. Try to predict or minimize spills with foil and drip pans. Techs call 'self-clean' the 'self-destruct' cycle. Using this function will reduce the life expectancy of any electric range. Let me know if this info helps-have more if needed- Thanks- ED

The door has turned brown around the top after 2 uses in 5 years of the self cleaning process. How do I clean that off or can it be? Is it possible to replace the door on the stove?


You can easily clean it with easyoff oven cleaner available at most grocery stores.. Yes you can replace the door but the cost would be prohibitive.

WHITE FILM INSIDE OVEN


your mom may have used a non-self cleaning cleaner to try and clean this oven in the past. you wont have much luck getting rid of the stain but using cleaners like easy-off or mr muscle may help you reduce the staining.
it could also be that an element has shorted out and "burned" the surface of the oven. if the oven doesnt heat properly then check the elements for a rough or burnt out area. that does happen but its probably just going to be stained as it sounds like you have tried to do the cleaning.
p.s. i like mr muscle better then easy-off.

Oven vents on front are stained and ugly. How do I clean them?


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.

Dirty glass on oven door


Does your stove have an electric self-cleaning cycle?

If so, do it. I was surprised how well it worked on the glass too!

Remember though it may take 3-4 hours at a very high temperature.

GE Spectra XL44 Gas Oven, flashing "Locked Door". Can't use oven or close door


I had the same problem happen tonight. I have an XL44 self-cleaning gas range. We unplugged it for several minutes and pressed 'cancel' a bunch of times--neither worked. We finally lucked out--opened the oven door and pressed a black button on the upper left side of the front of the oven. It turned out the flashing words and unlocked our door. Weird. There was nothing in the manual about this...

Oven wont turn on.


I tried several times to get my oven to work and nothing seemed to help. After downloading the manual from this site, my husband locked and unlocked the oven door several times very hard and it knocked something in place and now my oven works. I hope it works for you.
