Fireplace Damper Repairs by Old Sneelock's Workshop. When we bought our house we knew that the fireplace didn’t work. The damper was frozen shut. As part of the annual maintenance I checked the mortar in the fireplace chimney and realized it needed major repair. We hired a contractor to rebuild the chimney. When I recently examined the damper to determine the best method of repair I got some bad news. The damper actuator was rusted shut.
