Aquglass jet tub will only humm no bubbles out of none of the jet

We recently bought a house as is and there is a nice Aqua Glass jetted tub and I was so excited and could not wait to try it out, then when I filled it with water and pushed the little white button it only makes a humming noise nothing comes out of the jets. Is there anything that I can do to troubleshoot it myself or am I going to have to pay an arm and a leg to have repairman come out??? I have some access to the motor it is mounted under the back of the tub. HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

    What Does the tub look like?

    Are the jets for air or water?

When a motor hums, it usually is the result of what is called "locked rotor." This can occur when the motor's brushes remain on one pair of the commutator contacts. The magnetic field does not shift to the next set of windings and the rotor is locked in place by the unchanging magnetic field.

If you have access to the motor, turn on the power briefly and place your hand gently on the side of the motor. Probably you will feel the vibration of the hum you are hearing, together with some heat. In locked-rotor condition, the motor draws high amperage and heats up quickly. Turn off the power.

If this is the condition, the motor is shot and needs to be replaced. You should copy down the information from the name plate (model and serial number, manufacturer, horsepower, amperage, etc.) and contact the manufacturer or a local appliance parts store about a replacement.

As you said that you recently bought the house, you may have a home-owners warranty which may cover the appliance.

Aqua Glass whirlpool, Indulgence collection, pump turns on and works briefly, then jets stop.


First of all, what you have is a WOW pump that has an E-switch for a control.
There is a knob on the top lip of your tub that you turn a 1/4 turn to turn this pump on/off.
There is a small circuit board inside the box on top of the motor. This is likely the source of your problem.
Here is your biggest problem. That little circuit board is not made anymore. We have the e-switch but you will be better off changing out the pump (which you have to do anyway) with a new WOW pump with an air switch and change the switch on the top lip of the tub to an air button which will turn the pump on/off.

Aqua glass jetted tub quit working


Hello. There are two reset buttons in the mechanical space or your tub. You should be able to access that area from the front by removing a few screws. it is not uncommon to have to push those reset buttons after a power outage. If you do need a repair I recommend that you call a store that sells hot tubs as they will have a technician on staff or be able to guide you to one. Regards, Joe

Aqua glass whirlpool tub leaks. looking for closure caps to close off the jets for good.


To my knowledge there are no closure caps for your tub; you can however purchase new jets with new seals if the tub is leaking through the jets.

I know I can take a bath without turning on the jets. However; does the bath water with soap flow back into the jets? I like bubble baths, If I leave the jets off can I use the bubble bath without having...


The soapy water will fill all of the jets, tubes and the pump assembly. Will it hurt the tub if the jets are not running? The soap film will build up in the jets, tubes and pump assembly and can possibly cause damage if the tub is run at a later date. Contact the tub manufacture and see if there is a safe bubble bath you can use.
