Are you able to disconnect the flue higher up?
Are the screws on the flue or on the appliance?
No, flue is totally rigid so unable to disconnect.
Screws are on the plate which attaches the flue to the top of the appliance
I've been working hard to find another Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
