Gas cooktop clicking when using a retractable downdraft vent hood

Gas cooktops: 

The downdraft vent system may affect the flame stability and cooking performance.

  • To improve the burner performance, either decrease the downdraft vent blower speed or increase the cooktop burner flame setting.

Gas cooktops with flame sensing ignitions: 

The downdraft vent system may disperse the flame away from the spark igniter and may cause it to continually spark while trying to reignite a burner that is already lit.

  • To resolve the issue of the cooktop igniter continuously sparking, either decrease the downdraft vent blower speed or increase the cooktop flame setting for that burner.
