If you mean the vent damper is closed then the burner will not fire. Assuming the boiler is not hot then you either have a faulty damper or possibly a bad limit control (where you adjust the boiler water temp). You can try jumping out the limit (connect the 2 leads together) to rule it in or out. If nothing changes when you jump out the limit then a bad damper is the likely culprit
