Jacuzzi jet pump doesn't produce much bubbles

The jet pump turns on - I can feel the motor and hear it hum. But, instead of the normal jetstream of bubbles shooting into the jacuzzi, there is just light bubbling towards the surface.
I have a Sta-Rite Pump model # MPRA6F-148L

A broken jet internal would allow water to run back up the air lines and contaminate the air lines on all jets that are on the same manifold allowing no air to incorperate into the jets stream resulting in low pressure

Spa jets won't bubble


some tubs have a powered blower (you can hear it) or some tubs have a venturi suction bubbler system, you will have have to pop open service cover to look to see what kind you have, venturi type most of the time are turned off or down to far and don't produce bubbles (twist knobs) powered blowers sometimes have hoses pop off there fittings

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

Fill tub, press button, hear motor but no bubbles,etc coming from jets


Are the jets open? The center of the jets turn to adjust the pressure of the jets. If this is not the problem, there may be a problem with the impeller in the pump assembly. If you here the pump turning and not buzzing, it could be an air bubble in the suction tube. This tube is the one coming from the front of the pump, if the pump is higher than the tube coming from the tub, or if there is a high spot in the tube, an air bubble is a real possibility. If the tube is level with the pump, there should be no problem with air bubbles and the problem lies in the top part of this paragraph.

When i turn jacuzzi on it primes and one of the pumps/jets turns on, then when i try to turn the other jet/pump on it makes a funny sound and blows a fuse i checked to see if any air is in the line but...


This is probally a bad motor, the sound you hear is the motor trying to start but when it can't the breaker trips. If it takes a start capacitor it may be this rather than a motor but you will have to pull the motor to see. It may also be a clog in the pump but the motor sounds like the problem.

Jacuzzi pump not pumping


I would probably say that the pump is clogged up or frozen. The motor humms until the heat sensor clicks it off. Try taking apart the front of pump and see if it turns and you should see the problem. Parts are available at most pool stores. Pumps are usually cheaper online.

Jetted bath tub has stopped working - motor hums, will not run


The shaft on the motor should spin freely as should the impeller when attached to the pump. If there is drag on either, replace the pump and motor assembly. I have worked on jetted tubs for the past 5 years, I have seen seized pumps more than once.
