Kohler whirlpool will not shut off and sounds like about to blow

My wife was taking a bath and turned on the jets. At first, the tub worked fine and then when she went to turn the tub off the button was stuck and the jets would not shut off.

Sounds as if you may need a new switch to turn the tub on/off. You can find one on our site www.uspartscenter.com

How do I change jets in bathtub?


Do you wish to change the jets in the tub or just the trim?

Kohler led lighting and jacuzzi motor + jets stopped working but automatic line clearing air still blows when tub is emptied.


Air Switch Repair
It sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

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 the zuma whirl pool tub. the jets go on


This is an automatic feature to dry out the pipes and prevent mold. The next time you turn on the pump after leaving these tubs for a few weeks you get lots of black **** in the water and this is what this feature prevents. Sounds like the tub is working fine :)

I have a 1980 kohler jacauzzi tub with 6 jets. Looking through the access cover, at the end of the tub, I can see water dripping from some of the jets. Can I fix this without tearing out the walls around...


no not really the only way to fix it right is to open up the walls. this is a common problem with these units, the best thing you can do is contact the manufacture who made it and ask them what to do.

I have a kohler jetted tub and i am having a problem with the air switch. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. sometimes i will have to hit it several times before it works. sometimes it shuts off then...


First, disconnect the air hosing from the back of the pump. Reconnect a new vinyl hose to the back of the pump, and blow into the other end. If your pump turns on/off by doing this, see 'A," if not, see "B."

A. The electronic switch in the pump is good, and there is a problem with the air switch or vinyl tubing. The vinyl tubing could be kinked or the air bellows has failed.

B. The electronic switch in the pump is bad, the capacitor is bad, or some other electronic part of the pump is bad. Buying a capacitor or an electronic switch is of course a cheaper fix than to replace the entire pump.

Hope that helps.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

Kohler whirpool tub will not turn on


Here is the manual for the tub. The switch is an air switch with tube. You have to make sure the tube has no holes in it or replace it if you can. look on the manual it will help you out.
