Removing a wood burning stove - need help!

We need to remove this wood burning stove ASAP and cannot afford to hire someone to do it for us, so it will be up to my husband and his friend. I have been unable to find clear directions for this on google and need someone to explain it to me. We are not immediately concerned with removing the external chimney or the ceiling mount, but we need the stove pipe and stove gone.

Can someone talk me through this please?

Thank you!

AG, welcome to the forums! The black stove pipe should slip up into the collar and allow you to remove it by itself, leaving the chimney intact, if it was installed properly. Once the pipe is out of the way, the fun begins. That stove is heavy, with a capital "H".

I'd also be prepared for some soot to fall when the pipe is disconnected. It's easier to cover up and contain any mess first than to clean it up afterward.
