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

I got brown marks on the top of the oven door when using the self cleaning mode. It is a white oven and now it looks bad due to the brown marks. Is there a way to get rid of these marks ?


The brown marks are caused by some food residue burning off during the clean cycle and is usually very hard to clean off. You might try using a Mr. Clean Magic eraser with some soft scrub. If that dose not do it you may have to replace stained parts.

I have a bad stain on my ceran top stove. It is like a hard glue, which boiled over while steaming broccoli. How do I get this out please?


This has worked for me when I've melted plastic on my stove top, or had other stains that did not come off easily. Use a razor blade to scrape off all you can. Then, when it is cool, use stovetop cleaner (I use Weiman's) and a no scratch scrub sponge. I don't know what your stain is, but the razor blade will probably work.

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.

Cleaning before the self-clean - how much?


If you get most of the big chunks out that should be good, make sure there is no tomato sauce etc on the porcelian as it can leave a stain. Don't forget to take the racks out as they will not slide well if left in durin self clean.

Most likely the brown stain will NOT come off, if the stain comes off the paint will come with it. Replacing the control panel is the option for making it look good again. Sorry to bring bad news.
