check the vent is not restricted. I had had one where the installer accidentally stopped the butterfly flap from opening with a fixing for the flue. Also one where builder squashed the pipe in the roof. Another where there was no pipe from hood, not moving air at all,just a noise maker!

Am suffering the same problem. When dinner is being prepared on the hob and plenty of steam is being expelled by cooker hood fan drips fall on the hob. Have just discovered the cause one hour ago.
The steam is condensing on the electric motor stator casing. This mass of cold steel will always cause problems with our type of hood. Am waiting to talk to our kitchen installer to see what remedy he suggests. I would have expected the hood manufacturer to insulate the cold motor casing as part of the design.
The hood pipe vents through the roof. Either the shingles around the pipe, or the rubber flange the pipe goes through is allowing water to enter and run down the pipe.
Someone will have to go on the roof with a tube of roof cement and look for a void in the flange or the shingles. For sure I would run a bead of roof cement around the pipe where it goes through the flange.
Your water in southern california is very hot during the summer months. I would try pulling the aerators out of the sinks and shower heads and also pull the inlet screen out of the watervalve connection on the heater itself
Rebuild the watervalve or replace it. 6 year old unit means its probably one of the 125 series. Probably a polymer gray water valve. Pay attention to the venturi, most likely its very dirty. You can get instructions off the www.boschhotwater.com websight to rebuild this.
The flapper valve is a weather valve. Usually, it is installed in such a way that the flapper is vertical and closed. The pipe is installed on the horizontal...you'll need an EL pipe. Pivots allow it to open when the fan is on. If you don't install it, wind will blow into the unit and you will be rather unhappy.
It is possible that the sound you hear is normal when opened up. With all the covers in place, it should be nearly silent.
