Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

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
