Question about Kohler 1107-R-0 ProFlex Bath Tub with Flange and Right Hand Drain Finish: W
Just moved in a house and the bathtub spa does not work at all. It has a button connected to an air line for a on and off switch. have tried water at different levels still nothing. Can not get to pump very easy.
The bath spa has a air pressure switch that does pump air into the tube. The tube is clean. There is electrical power to the pump motor. The access panel is removed. There is no visible corrosion around the pump motor. When the air switch is depressed, the pump motor remains idle. All water tubing is intact, no leaks.
The incoming wiring attaches to a sealed end of a typical elec. junction box (metal). The air tube is attached at the opposite end (also sealed). The box is mounted on top of the pump motor. The power to the motor goes downward into the pump. I have very limited access to the pump and the top elec. box. The plate on top of the box has rust. If I can remove it, I have no idea where to continue trouble shooting. I do not know the date/manufacturer of the pump. There is an impeller attacment on the motor with a mounted hose connection. I bought this house 14 years ago. The spa tub unit was in the bathroom. It could have (?) been installed in 1990. What do I need to do other than an expensive technician service bill??
If the air tube is still connected to the air button on the side of the tub and you are pushing it with no results then either the motor is no good, the air button is no good or the air switch in the box is no good.
process of elimination, start with the pump. take the switch off the motor or out of the box and make sure you can get the motor to come on. If the motor comes on then move to the air switch and hook it back up and see if you can blow into the air switch with a new air button or a straw and see if the switch will activate the pump. if it does then you most likely have a bad air button ($12). If you cannot get it to activate the pump then the air switch is bad ($21).
