Smoke Stains on a Stove?

I have tried without success to remove smoke stains from a white electric range. When using the broiler and when the stove is turned on for self-cleaning, smoke comes up through the oven onto the white backside of the range. Nothing I've used so far including Soft Scrub will remove it. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

After using the self clean oven, I to ended up having heat stain on the top of the white, oven door. I tried Murphy Oil, full strength, with a soft cloth. After rubbing and rubbing,a lot of the brownish stain was removed. However, there is still a little remaining.

Once a hot pizza was placed on my walnut sewing cabinet and left a burned stain. That time I used vegetable shortening mixed with cigarette ashes and rubbed it in,itworked wonders... No stain. Now all I have to do is find a smoker and try rubbing it on my stove!

I have the same problem about the smoke stains on my stove. I have tried everything I can thank of and so far nothing has worked.

I hope someone knows something that will take it off. The stove is a real nice looking stove but this just ruins it.

I use WHITE CLEANING VINEGAR, not the same as regular white vinegar. Spray liberally and let it sit for 5-10 mins then wipe off! For more stubborn stains, sprinkle baking soda before you wipe the vinegar off. You can use a toothbrush to scrub or just a regular kitchen sponge!

Go to a good paint store and ask for 'Whiting'(it's a very fine powder typically used for thickening paint). It is also used as a polishing ingredient of Auto Waxes (the 'white powder' residue). It will not scratch porcelain or glass. Use a damp microfiber or terry cloth rag, saturate with liquid soap.

Dampen the stain, sprinkle Whiting on, and then gently rub away the stain. The only way you can scratch the stove is to use a rag that will scratch it. Don't have to be rough; gently rubbing will suffice. Also excellent for removing stains on dinnerware, etc.

I'm wondering if oven cleaner would remove the stain. Also try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Rubbing really hard when using it!

Would it be safe to use a laminate plastic to cover the stain across the top of the stove door located just over the vents?

I had the same problem and eventually the heat from the self cleaning function coming out of that vent up across the back panel of the range will not only stain it, but the paint starts peeling. This is a design flaw. My range is in perfect operating condition and this one thing makes it so unsightly that I want to replace a perfectly good stove.
