Bosch downdraft installation - help!

Posted by sblc (My Page) on

We're beginning construction on a new home and have planned on a Bosch 30" induction cooktop and downdraft ventiliation with a remote blower. According to the Bosch website, we also need to install a 6" transition piece, # DHZDHR6. Our builder needs to know the dimensions of the transition piece, but they're not available on the Bosch website, or any of the appliance websites. And a phone call to Bosch resulted in them saying that 'yes, you need the piece, and yes, we have no information on it!' Since I won't be taking delivery of the appliances for a few months, I'm wondering it anyone has any information on this system and what the requirements are. Thanks!

Many manufacturers provide on-line copies of their products' installation manuals. You may find one on the Bosch website. If so, it may be possible to answer the question from the information it provides.

Appliance showrooms carrying the product should also be able to dig up the installation manuals that were shipped with the units that they have on display.

While having a bunch of appliances hanging around during construction may be inconvenient, their presence can facilitate answering a lot of questions. And the installation manuals are then at hand for planning and design.

If you're building a new house, think strongly about an overhead hood instead of a downdraft. It will work much better and now's the time to do it.
