    Perhaps you just need to live with it if it is a good working stove. Get the burner covers that will cover that area so that you only have to see the marks when you use it. I am sure there is paint to repair the areas if you want to go to that place. I would check at a store that deals in appliances only.

    Brillo will definitely scratch the enamel but it will clean! I use a very small very sharp knife and scrape the dark spots off carefully not scratching the paint. After that, I use "Barkeepers Friend" (sold near cleansers) and it will scour the area without scratching and get most of that off. It is a labor intensive undertaking!

    What is it, grease? Try Awesome Degreaser from the Dollar Tree, that's gotten stoves clean that even ovencleaner wouldn't get it off. On the right it looks like the enamel has worn off..... get one of those tub and tile epoxy repair kits at the hardware store and touch it up.

    PS I usually use a round kitchen plastic scrubby to clean stoves, but I am not adverse to once in awhile getting a Brillo pad on a spot.

    HI! It's hard to tell from the photo what might be causing the yellow spots. Does it look like burned on oil/grease of some kind? One good product I've used...besides all the usual home remedies like vinegar, baking soda, salt, rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, etc., is Goo Gone, available at Walmart or most anywhere. Just keep applying it, letting it sit, scrubbing with a good soft plastic sponge (be careful of SOS pads or fine-grain steel wood or you might scratch the paint further, which would result in rust). There's another really good product you can order online called Stanley mom used it for laundry, and I have as well...but it also sometimes works on other surfaces as well. Good luck--I understand exactly how you feel...very frustrating!!

    P.S. Didn't see Melissa, Marrandolph, and Sharon's comments just before mine. They also have some great suggestions I didn't mention!

    I have seen silicone liners that fit around the base of a gas burner. They lay flat under the grates and are designed to catch cooking spills. These are similar to the liners that go on an oven floor. If you can't get the stove surface clean maybe try covering it.

    Hello ladies. This is usually caused by leftover and burned on food and oils overtime. If the surface is still in good condition just spray it with oven cleaner and let it set overnight, then wipe it off. Or for a faster clean, turn the burner on long enough to heat the area then turn it off, spray with oven cleaner and let set for an hour or two (Try not to get a lot of foam in the burner), then wipe it down the same way you would your oven. Abrasives of any kind will wear down the surface and destroy the look of your appliance. This way your appliances still look almost new for years to come.

    Remove them, soak in dish liquid, then scrub with SOS. Where you can't get at use a small bamboo skewer. Rinse, place them in a toaster oven at 300 degrees,for about 10 minutes. Let cool replace. Turn on the gas, and make sure all the holes light, if not wait till they do, shut off. Clean the outer part with Soft Scrub, very lightly.

    You can buy porcelain touch up paint, I am not sure if it's heat resistant though, if you put the burner covers on there it should cover those marks mostly. Have you tried SOS pads?

    If there is any rust below the grease (looks like there is in a couple spot) that's causing discoloration you can use plain old cocoa cola. Seal the outside of your burner and you can just soak paper towels in it and let it sit for a bit. If that's the cause it will clear the discoloration right up. You can use a magic eraser for help after you wipe up the cola and clean it with water but those cause microabrasions so it'll still scratch but not visible like a brillo pad. Hope this helps!
