New Gas Range stove causing strong cooking smell/fumes to enter the upstairs room areas.
I have recently bought a new gas range stove to replace my old one. Ever since I got my new stove installed, the cooking odour and fume would end up in the upstairs portion of my house. It felt like the range hood was not even doing it's job. I had no problem with the old gas stove, worked like a charm, the fumes and odours where vented out perfectly by the range hood. After doing some extensive research, I figured that maybe the new stove was overpowered and needed a range hood with higher CFM. I ended up installing a new range hood with 680 CFM. Overall, there was a slight improvement but the cooking odour and fumes are still making their way to the upstairs portion of my house. The odour and fume feel more toxic when baking, harder to breath. Im still going crazy trying to figure out why this new stove is causing the food odour and fume to escape into the second floor of the house. My second floor area smells more like a kitchen then my actual kitchen located on the main floor. I hope someone has experience with the problem and happens to have a solution! One more thing, the smoke detectors go crazy every-time I cook or bake something.
This is the stove that I've bought:
