I am looking for a replacement range hood fan baffle over the cooktop. The flange is broke on one side, so it does not hang. Propane plume is coming in vent when water heater kicks on! How dangerous is this?

VERY!!!! If you have a ceiling fan it would be best to use it when the water heater is on.

If you have the ceiling fan in exhaust mode, I would think that you would increase the amount of propane exhaust coming into the range hood vent opening. I sure would get the fan baffle fixed ASAP so the propane exhaust is blocked from entering the opening. You could also run the range hood fan when the water heater is on to force the air movement out instead in, but that may not be practical.
