Question about Whirlpool 5"x36" White Bathroom Drop-in Bathtub Spa Jet

I have a 21 year old Jason Whirlpool tub. The control switch (timer) is across the room on the wall. Is it possible to replace the switch with a new one that has a remote control? If so, where would I buy the switch?

The switch is located there to comply with the electrical code. I recommend that you leave it as is.

SOURCE: power switch for whirlpool tub

the easiest thing (maybe) is to install an air switch kit on the side of your tub. Here is a link to the part. Basically you install an air button on the side of the tub, install the air tubing from the nipple on the underside of the air button to the nipple on the box that plugs into an outlet under the tub. The pump plugs into that same box and the air tubing from the air button pushing onto the nipple on the box. When you push the button on the tub it will turn the pump on/off. Air Switch Kit

I have a swirlbath whirlpool tub and the air hose fell off the push button switch on the side of the tub. The tub is 19 years old and the switch is against the wall side of the tub. How do I hook it u


Yo Dennis,

When I had to replace a switch on my unit I had the same problem. Jacuzzi uses double sided tape to hold the switches in place and they are a bear to get off. Try some dental floss or fishing line under the switch body to "saw" through the tape and lift the switch out. Maybe use a hair dryer first to try to soften the adhesive, but at 19 years it may be rock ??.

You may have to pry the switch out (!!) with a screwdriver (rag underneath) and the old plastic may grenade. A new one may be needed.

Be prepared for very little slack in the air line. I had a hard time reconnecting mine and ended up having to add a couple inches of tubing with adapters. No fun. The switches are mounted from below at the factory, so slack is not an issue.

All the best.

How to service a temperature switch


This control panel switch regulates the temperature of the water in the tub. It also plays a role in controlling the fill cycle. If you suspect this switch is faulty, remove it and hook a test wire across the switch terminals. If water flows, the switch is faulty. If the switch is faulty, replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.

If there's a problem with both water temperature and tub filling cycles, both the temperature switch and the timer may be faulty. Test both components and replace them as necessary. Procedures for testing the timer can be found below.

The wall timer to my outside lights says


yes they are horrible,you can try pushing very ******* the on off button and holding for extra long my best solution is to replace with a regular switch and install a photocell anywhere between the switch and your first light including at the first light. much more reliable and much less expensive. can also get photocells with dusk to dawn opperation that will allow you to control how long your lights stay on after dark 2, 4, 6 hours or all night . mechanical timers are also very reliable but expensive big and very industrial looking usually installed in a garage or mech room good luck

There are a couple things you can try with your tub.. The 10 min timer is one they used on older tubs but, may still be used with yours. Turn timer all the way up. make sure tub is filled with enough water. some have little sensors that wont let it turn on with out enough water. The button may feel spongy because it is using air to turn on the pump switch so give it a good quick push.. also the last things to check will be to check the breaker box and be sure the breaker is on, turn the breaker off and on to test. also look around the room of the tub and look for gfi plugs and switches that may be tripped. they will look like the wall plugs for hair dryers but, may not have outlets on them. just reset all plugs you find in the rooms. Hope this helps you. ask more questions if you need to.

Washing machine stops half way through the cycle


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor wont turn on


We had the same thing happen to our Aker brand whirlpool tub.  The fix was a replacement timer/control piece which is connected by two wires to the pump behind the tub (access wall) and plugged into the outlet; however, this cost $150 for the part and $85 for the service call (all he did was take the part out and ship me the replacement part which was easy to do).  Problem I have now is that the motor won't shut off unless I unplug it.  I am waiting for a call back from the repairman who sent me the part.

hi This control panel switch regulates the temperature of the water in the tub. It also plays a role in controlling the fill cycle. If you suspect this switch is faulty, remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing (the test takes special equipment). Or, hook a test wire across the switch terminals; if water flows, the switch is faulty. If the switch is faulty, replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new switch the same way the old one was connected.
If there's a problem with both water temperature and tub filling cycles, both the temperature switch and the timer may be faulty. Test both components and replace them as necessary. Procedures for testing the timer can be found below.
