Have you checked the GFCI for the pump?
Check the controls, if it is air button operated inspect the air button, vinyl tubing and the air switch in the motor. If you have electronic controls, there isn't a good way for a home owner to test it.

  • Is pump getting power, if yes...
  • Are controls working? If yes it is the motor, they are small and cheaply made so it is likely. If no check or change the controls/switches.

My new jacuzzi 6 jet tub is only working on one side. What could cause that?

Probably control panel or if there are separate pumps for each side, that side's pump probably doesn't have a relay working with bad switch from the control panel.

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.

I bought a used whirlpool tub without a motor. How can I determine. What size and type motor fits it if there are no identifying markings to determine Brand ....?

There are many different pumps that could work with your tub. You need to find out if there is a control on the lip of the tub to turn the pump on/off and what does that control look like.

I filled the tub, pushed the start button and all worked just right. When I went to shut it off it wouldn't shut off. I tried repeatedly. Finally had to get out of the tub and unplug it, (couldn't find any...

Sounds like either the air button on the side of the tub has quit working or the air switch in the back of the motor is not working.
Take the pump out. Get a straw, plug the pump into a working power outlet, blow into the straw into the air switch (where the air tubing was connected) on the motor. If the pump comes on/off when blowing into the straw then the air button on the tub is bad. If the pump will not come on or turn off when blowing into the air switch with the straw then the Air Switch is bad.

Jacuzzi outdoor bath tub i have there is power but the bubbles thing isnt working

Find the plug for the pump and plug it in ( tub full of water), if the pump works,the problem is in the contol box or switch. if the pump/motor has a plastic tube coming out of a black box, and the pump still does not work when plugged in, it is most likely the air switch connected to that plastic tube on the pump. the switch is avaliable online and not to hard to replace if you are mechanically inclined.

No whirlpool jets

It sounds like the motor needs to be lubricated or there is debris keeping the impeller from turning without the help of a littl force. I would have a professional that deals with whirlpool tubs come and lube the motor.
