    how do i fix it? I think it sounds as if the motor is runing but the fan is stuck. how do i gett to the fan to spin it and un stick it? This unit started working right the first time but when i turned it off then back on the noise started and the jets did not.

    I just bought a brand new house, and the whirlpool tub won't work! When I press the on button- the motor makes a normal humming sound, but the jets won't work. I read some other threads and tried all the simple things like twisting the jet covers, and checking the intake but I've had no luck. I've finally taken off the front cover of my tub, and I've discovered that the motor itself isn't sitting on the floor properly! It's wedged between the the wall and one of the hoses from the jets- but not enough to crimp it or block it's flow. Is it possible that the motor is sitting too high above the flow of water? And should I try to make it (the motor) sit properly?

    Is it the normal noise you are used to hearing (typical pump humm) or louder then normal / grinding / rattling? 


    Can you observe if the pump shaft is turning?


    Is there anything obstructing the suction port?

    The jets on our white LM 65519 jacuzzi tub are getting black after several years of use. How should I clean them? Do I have to take them apart?

Sounds like maybe the impeller is just spinning on the shaft of the motor.

SOURCE: I have a jacuzzi tub with the whirlpool WOW motor.

Open the access panel and see if the motor is working or just trying to work. Sounds like it may need lubrication.

My new jacuzzi 6 jet tub is only working on one side. What could cause that?


Probably control panel or if there are separate pumps for each side, that side's pump probably doesn't have a relay working with bad switch from the control panel.

What cleaner gets the bad smell and crud out of jacuzzi jets?


Here is a link to a site that sells jetted tub cleaners.

Any of these cleaners work very well at removing the smell from a jetted tub and the bacteria in the pipes as well.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

I have a jacuzzi corner tub. The control panel


I would expect there is a Jacuzzi dealer in your town and I would guess he has parts. If you purchase parts locally, not only are you helping your neighbor but also, you will have the opportunity to pick his brain on tips to install.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com.

My jets wont turn on


All the electric power source to all jacuzzi tubs all required to be protected by a "ground fault" device. Have you noticed special wall receptacles in your kitchen and bathroom that have 'test' and 'reset' buttons? There may be a receptacle (or something that looks like a receptacle but without any slots for plugs) near the tub. Push the reset button. If the pump for the tub has an access panel, the device may be behind the panel. And last, the circuit breaker in the main electrical panel may be a ground fault type and needs reset there. Good Luck
