Re: viking hood damper

Remove the blower and reach up into the duct through the back flow damper and put weather stripping on the 2 edges that are chattering, it will greatly reduce the noise

In winter, cold air blows back down and out through the fan.

Either a backdraft damper was never installed in the ductwork or the damper is stuck open...
Has it always been this way?? If so then the damper probably was never installed and you will need to have one installed to stop the air...
If it was good at the beginning and now is not then the damper is stuck will need to find it and then get it working agian...
The dampers often are right at the outlet of the hood...if you take down the hood it should be right there...

Range vent damper noise

Check to make sure that the installer completely untaped the damper when he installed it. It needs to be able to move freely.

Smell of neighbours cooking comes through hood fan! HELP!

It appears to me that each hood has a fan discharging air and odours into a common duct.
The only solution to me is to have a main exhaust fan at the very end of the duct continually sucking the air out of the duct.This way it will not allow the individual hood fans to pressurise the main duct,forcing the air to esape through the path of least resistance,which happens to be the neighboars hood.

It may be that such a fan is existent but switched off due to malfunction,or switched off for running costs reasons.
