Check the switch and air lines. You probably hear the switch clicking but not the pump. It probably goes into an air powered solinoid for the actual switch, away from the water. Ckeck those connections.

Jacuzzi tub will not turn on button will not click on as usual


Your problem is most likely NOT the air button but the switch in the motor.
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.

My whirlpool motor/pump will not start but hums occasionally. The switch does not function properly during these periods. Do I have a switch problem, pump/motor problem or both?

I have an Aqua Glass whirlpool tub, and the jets no longer work. When I hit the on/off button, it just makes a clicking sound. Do I need a new pump? If so, what type do I buy?

The air switch on my whirlpool tub will not toggle, i must hold the button in to keep motor running.


What you are experiencing when you push the Air Button down and it engages the BATH PUMP but when you release the the Air Button is a bad Air Switch in the BATH PUMP.
When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to move a small switch in the BATH PUMP. When the switch in the BATH PUMP is bad it will not engage.
What you need is a new Air Switch model TBS-339.

I have the sa9592-02 bubble tub and my push button to start bubbles dose not start the moter


it sounds to me like the air button may not be working. You may have a small hole in the bellows which is the part that sends the air down the air tubing to the air switch in the motor. If there is not enough air being pushed down to the switch it will not activate the motor. You need a new air button or a new air switch in the motor. Pull the pump out and plug it into an outlet. take a straw and blow into the air switch while the pump is plugged in. it the motor turns on then you know you need an air button on the top of the tub. If the motor does NOT turn on then you need an air switch for the motor.

My jacuzzie motor just clicks and won't turn on.


Look behind the tub cover, it should have one. You should be looking for a GFCI it sounds like. These are the outlet that you generally have in your kitchen. They have a reset button and it just sounds like it needs to be reset.
