Gas Cooktop Clicking when Using a Retractable Downdraft Vent Hood

Whirlpool Cooktop Clicking

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.
