Condensation on range hood and air coming out behind cabinets.

We just finished our new home and noticed that our range hood (stainless) is condensing on its surface when running. Additionally in the gap between the drywall and corner cabinet, on the same wall as the range, air is leaking out and it gets worse when the range is running. It seems as the range may not be working and the vent itself isn't sealed properly? Thoughts?

Not enough information. A photo may help. Is this an exterior wall or interior wall ?

But on the information provided, makes me wonder if the hood exhaust is running through a rectangular duct inside the wall. But even if the duct is blocked, it does not fully make sense. Around the cabinet, are you sure the air is blowing OUT, and not INTO the gap?
