My Jacuzzi Tub won't start

When I press the button of my jacuzzi tub, it hums but the jets never start. I believe the motor has possibly corroded and it can't start. I have tried the following to fix it: 1) Fill the water with dish detergent and let it soak overnight, and 2) fill the water with vinegar and let it soak overnight. The motor is located on the right side of the tub and is difficult to access. I once spoke with someone at GE who said that a screwdriver may help turn the motor to get it started. If so, then I need to know how to disassemble the motor.

    A new motor alone was quoted to me as $357 by a contractor. That's a lot to spend on something that I hardly ever use. I was wondering if this motor, like others, can be fixed by using a screw to turn the shaft and overcome any corrosion or obstruction. If so, then I'll try disassembling it myself.

Try compressed air through the system,careful not to use too much pressure. Also you may use another water pump to push water through system and free up the motor. The easiest thing may be to get a new motor though.

Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going


IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Our jacuzzi is almost regular tub and has tow metal buttons, one on the top/edge and the other near jet mouse at the middle level of bath tub. We have not used our jacuzzi for 10 months. Even we only use...


The metal button on the top of the tub is used to turn the tub on/off. the metal button you see in the middle of the tub above one of the jets is the low water sensor.
the water has to be above that metal tab, you have to be in the tub and then touch the metal button on the top of the tub to turn it on.
this system uses the electrical current from our bodies to complete the circuitry and turn it all on and off.

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.

Jacuzzi whirlpool, air on/off button on tub


If it is a air button that pushes in and comes back up, there is a good chance that the switch (which is mounted on the pump/motor) is bad. If the switch is a touch button on a key pad, the problem is in the control box for the pump/motor.
