Make sure there's a air flap check installed outside to prevent air from being drawn into the hood from outside. You know they have them on dryer vents.

Sounds like you have a huge supply air leak going outside and it's using the range hood to replace that air.

Your furnace requires combustion air. If it has a blockage of its air supply, air will be drawn in from any outside opening.
The flapper on the range hood vent, should be closed unless the fan is running.
