I recently traded in my rear vent Chubby stove for a top vent. I now have an oval to round adapter which has a female end that connects to the stove and a crimped male end that connects to my flue pipe. The problem I am running into is my support box in the ceiling is a male connection and the stove adapter is a male connection, so how do I connect the two? I've done extensive research and found mixed reviews about which direction to hook up single wall interior stove pipe. My old setup was installed with the female end up and the crimped male end down, but this won't work with my new stove setup. My old stove had a female connection on it so running the stove pipe with all crimped male connections down was not a problem. Do they make black stove pipe with 2 female ends...would this be an option? I contacted Larry Trainer and he told me when connecting flue pipe to an anthracite stove all crimped male ends should head towards the ceiling. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
