ok

The damper opening and closing means that it can't find the open or closed position for some reason. There are switches on the damper and it's not sending a signal to the board the it's in the open or closed position so it just keeps cycling. Either way, the damper control just needs to be replaced so below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace for your model.
