What is the minimum clearance above the gas stove top for a Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination model 721.80412?

It is a Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination model 721.80412. It was installed 2 years ago with 15" clearance above the gas stove top. The unit seems to be functioning normally and there is no apparent damage. The client is concerned that the clearance is inadequate for the hood to function properly. Is this a valid concern?

The minimum clearance for the microwave/hood is 13 inches above the top of the burner grates.

Many people are unhappy with the draw of all brands of microwave/hoods. The manufacturers try to keep the noise level low and they don't move as much air as an old noisy range hood.
