2748.328 Town Square 5' x 42" Air Bath Tub Won't Work

I have a brand new Town Square Air Bath that worked for the first 10 minutes and then stopped.  At first I thought I tripped the circuit breaker, but that wasn't it.  The on/off lights on the tub (the bubble symbol) were still lit.  I couldn't get it to turn off.  I pressed all the other buttons, but nothing happened.  What could cause the Air Bath to stop blowing all of the sudden, and how can I fix it?

Air bath tubs have a preset time limit. it could be that it reached that limit. Especially if the lights are still lit up on the control.

What causes bubbler to turn off after 3 minutes of use in my kohler k1257-g tub


If your air blower does not run for more than about 3 minutes then you may have a bad motor.
Once it shuts down it should come back on in about 10 minutes after it cools down.
Every motor has a thermal protection built into it to prevent the motor from burning up.
If this is the situation then you will need a new motor.

Push button on my jacuzzi won't start it despite power going to unit


The air button on your tub may be bad and not sending enough air to the air switch located on the bath pump.
The way to check this is to remove the bath pump and see if you can turn the bath pump on by taking a large straw and blowing into the air switch on the bath pump to see if you can get the bath pump to turn on.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you have a bad air button.
If you cannot get the bath pump to turn on then remove the air switch and plug the two wires going to the air switch together and then plugging the pump into a power outlet you know has power.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you need a new air switch in the motor.
If the motor does not come on then you need a new bath pump.

you have a bad motor - when a motor overheats there is a sensor inside the motor that will shut if down so as to not damage the windings and such. once your tub has cooled down for 10 mins or so it will turn back on. the fact that you can push the button multiple times just means that you are turning the air switch on the back of the motor on/off until you get to the point where the motor has cooled down and will turn back on. if you do not push the air button after the tub shuts down and you finish your bath then when the pump cools down it will come back on because the air switch in the motor is latching i.e. it is either on or off. Since you left it in the on position the motor will come back on once the motor has cooled down.

Jetted bath tub has stopped working. Motor hums


look on the back of the motor there should be a shaft that you can try to turn to spin free because something inside the pump is blocking it. rate me if this is helpful.

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

I have an american standard air tub and cannot get the air jets to shut off.  They turn off, but come back on automatically a short time later.  How do I shut the power off?


Check the air vacuum switch and line as you may have a air vacuum leak. The button that controls the on and off to the jets is an air vacuum switch....It may have a slow air leak in the line or connections that is activating the on and off control
