Rewire Automatic Damper Always Open?


I have a automatic Damper that has stripped gears and won't let my boiler turn on. I talked to the guy that installed the boilers years ago and he said he sometimes just rewires them to be always open but didn't tell me how to do it. Does anyone know how they are rewired to trick the boiler into thinking it is always open? The plug is just four wires. Thanks

Because if it doesn't really make much difference having it there, then why spend the extra $300 for a new one.

It does make a difference, it prevents your heat and $$ from rising up the chimney 24 hrs/day. Imagine having a 5 or 6" hole in your roof letting air and $$ out. Also makes your home less drafty and more comfy as air is not being sucked in around your doors and windows to replace the air going out the chimney.
