Whirlpool corner tub not working

I have a corner whirlpool tub and it will not come on. I checked the fuse box and it is ok. It has an powerbutton on the tub and a wall switch. There are no access panels to get into the tub area and I don't know where the pump would be to check it out and I don't want to tear up my walls to get in unless I have too. The tub was all ready here when I bought the house. Any ideas?

Jacuzzi tub will only turn off if tub is empty

This sounds like maybe you have a bad circuit on the control that turns the pump on/off.
Get the model number off the control box under the tub and let me know what it is and we can solve that issue for you.

Jacuzzi tub motor

Sounds to me like the switch is bad. I would have a plumbing or electrician come out and check the controls to see if they are working and double check the motor to make sure it is not the problem.

I have a U.S Whirlpool Jacuzzi tub that has been installed for about 6 years but have only used 5 or 6 times. We have not used it in over a year and now we cannot get the motor to run. We checked the...

Call a local bathtub service company but check to see it the tubing on the back of the motor has come off. If your tub turns on/off with an air button on the top of the tub, that tubing has to be hooked up in order for the pump to be able to turn on/off.

let me know if you need further help. I would need to know what the control looks like on the top of the tub in order to further assist you.

Jacuzzi doesn't voltage to outlet, checked braker box, reset it..still not working...any ideas?

Maybe a GFCI outlet that it's pluged into may be tripped . check any other GFCI outlets through your house and make sure none are tripped.

Some tubs have access doors with GFCI outlets near motor at tub may be tripped.

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor problem. Turn motor on and trips GFI. It looks like the GFI is wired right and suggestions

Unplug tub from GFI, does GFI hold, plug something else into GFI to see if it holds under load. If all is ok then make sure you have a good ground from the motor to the GFI and the polarity is good. If 120 vac black wire to gold post, white wire to silver post and ground to green. Check proper connections, including polarity and ground at tub junction box and at pump motor it self.

The topside control panel is dysfunctional for turning on the jets. The on/off button doesn't work. The lights and temperature buttons work ok. The on/off button doesn't click on/off like the others.

It may be a bad control pad (topside) or control box (mounted behind the pump under the tub). I have replaced three bellavista control pad and boxes in the past 2 weeks. If you plan on keeping the tub have both the box and topside replaced. You can check the topside by gently prying it off the tub with a stiff putty knife or a blade of some kind, be very careful and take your time. When you have removed the topside, check the circuit board attached to the cable, if there is any corrosion on the board the topside is bad. It will cost 200.00 less shipping, the control box will cost 320.00 or more less shipping. topside part no. M465000 Control box part no. S474000 Both can be found on the internet under their part numbers.

I have a corner jet tub, I need to know where the rubber hose goes on the motor from the switch.Please

The rubber hose usually goes on the back of the black box located on top of the motor. There is usually a nut that comes off, the hose goes through this nut, the hose then fits on the small nipple in the center of where the nut was removed. Slide the nut up to the box and tighten finger tight to hold the hose in place. If there is no box on the pump. follow the electrical plug from the outlet, sometimes the control box is mounted on the tubing or side of the tub.

My jacuzzi stopped turning on.

I would check all power to the tub. Is it plugged straight to a breaker, plugged into a GFCI, GFCI breaker in the master panel? For it to just stop altogether I would think something tripped.
