    i need to remove the pipe on my stove, anyone had experience in removing duravent with silicone on it?

    what would be the easiest way to go about this?

    thanks

    This is a complicated process

    1. twist
    2. pull
    3. If 1 and 2 fail try again

    Do you have a Dremel with a cutting wheel? :)

    (and a replacement piece of pipe)

    If there is any visible silicone at the joint, run a razor blade along it to hopefully break through as much as possible.

    Then you can twist and pull...

    Try a strap wrench, it will give you a lot more purchase and leverage. When you break the cheap plastic one that you bought, buy a better one.
