If the vent does not allow for proper draft - can the inducer be damaged?

thanks.

The metal vent that provides the draft. Runs outside and up the side of the house.

Well yea the inducer motor can be damanged if for some reason the B-Vent flue is plugged up or is obstructed by something.

Is the unit venting to the outside from the unit, IE can you see vapor on a cold day exit the top?

thanks for your help. someone doing work on my house - moved the B-vent flue and did not extend it above the roof line (actually only about 3 feet up). due to that the inducer motor was damaged. before "yelling" at the workman I wanted an objective answer.

thanks again.
