Sounds like the button may have a bad bellows inside. You will need to change the button out.
US Parts Center you can find one there.

The button is hard to push to start the pump.


if you can remove the center of the air button, take some soft emery cloth and run it around the outside of the button and the inside of the air button body to remove the calcium built up there.
that usually will save you about $20 from having to change out the air button completely.

You have a bad neumatic switch. Or a small hole in the air line. Try pushing the button fast and hard to see if it will stay on. if so , it is a hole in the tube. if not it is your neumatic switch

Our cetra jacuzzi tub start button is very hard to push. My husband can get it to come on but I can't. What need to be replaced?


if you can remove the center bezel and trim ring, get some emery cloth from the plumbing store and run it on the inside of the button body where the bezel goes up/down and then do the same thing to the outside of the bezel. You probably have calcium deposits on it making it a little too tight for the button bezel to go up and down.

When we press the button nothing happens. It has worked perfect until just recently. Tub is two years old.


Most of the control buttons on a tub are not electrical. These buttons are connected to an air line that runs to the motor. Sometimes an aggressive button push can literally blow the air line right off of the bottom of the button.
This problem is as easy to fix as it sounds. Find the loose air line and push it back onto the button. You will need to open up your access panel. Bring a flashlight. Good luck

Only used my Royal whirlpool bathtub about three times


My jetted tub will not work, and it used to work just fine. Nothing happens when i push the button to turn it on. Could this be a switch problem? Also do not hear the motor doing anything when button is pushed. Dou you think I just need to get a new pump??

Be sure to check the connection at the motor too. Good luck
