Hi my name is Robert...

You may be able to install a spring loaded back-draft damper that would solve the issue, the only other option would be to block the vent when not in use with a shield or the method you are using now. I might contact all viking parts and see what options are available to you, they have a great customer support desk and should be able to help. Make sure you get the model number if you call in.
