Kohler K1338 spa tub controls messing up

Kohler K1338 spa tub
Back jets in the bottom position. If I turn up neck jet speed, that resets the back jets unless I press the down arrow on the neck jets first. Is this tub damaged?

My airflow valve is pouring water out on spa


Water coming out of the air controls is usually caused by the water jets being turned off or blocked making the water go backwards in the spa system.
Open the jet faces and make sure they are all open and not blocked.

MY JETS WONT TURN ON


The threaded knob should not be related to the problem, it just controls how much air gets mixed into the water jets. One possibility is that the electricity is off. These tubs should receive power through a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) type of circuit breaker for your protection from electrical shock. Check your circuit breaker panel(s) for a breaker with a little square white or yellow "test" button. Refer to the label (if it is there) to see if it refers to "tub" or "spa" or "bath" or something like that. You may have to turn the breaker handle off (push extra hard to make it reset) and then back on again. If the breaker handle is in the "on" position and the "test" button does not "trip it off," call an electrician. If no luck there, check the bathroom for an electrical outlet with GFCI protection, again looking for white or yellow (or red) buttons - one should be engraved "test" and the other "reset" as the electrician (I hope it was an electrician) may have supplied the tub from this outlet (not actually up to code). Plug an appliance or light into the outlet. If it doesn't work, push the reset button on the outlet and test again. If working, now test the spa. If that doesn't work, test every other GFCI outlet you can find - in the kitchen, other baths, garage, outdoors, basement, etc. using the same testing procedure. If you find a GFCI breaker or outlet "tripped" that restores the tub, that indicates there is something wrong with your electrical system that could cause you to get electrocuted, and requires that you hire a qualified electrician to investigate the problem. The same is true for any GFCI outlet that does not "trip" and/or "reset." If this doesn't fix the tub, the problem may not be electrical but some other problem with the system, indicating a plumber or spa tech may need to be consulted. Note: these GFCI breakers and outlets are supposed to be tested and reset once every month. How many of us do that? Well, at least as often as we test our smoke detectors, I suppose.

How to clean mold from jets on Kohler Spa tub


Mold on your jets can come from a variety of places but due mostly to the bacteria in the tub.
There are several kinds of cleaners to use in the meantime once you get your trim clean so you can prevent what you are experiencing.
Take the trim off and clean them in your sink. DO NOT put them in the dishwasher as it is too hot and will ruin your trim.
Here is a link to our site that has different options for cleaning the pipes and keeping the jets from getting yucky.

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

this happens sometimes when the leads under the tub get a bit corroded. Get under the tub and find the studs and screws that are at the end of the low water sensor wires and clean them up with some emery cloth then reinstall them.
this should get you back up and running again.

once a jet face has fallen out of a hot tub that means the insert has failed and is broken. you will need to locate a new jet insert. Jet inserts have little tabs on them that hold them in place and when they get worn out the jet face will fall out into the tub.

Whirlpool tub, jets come on and won't shut off. No water in tub.


Is it a jetted tub, or a air bath tub with holes or jets in the floor? If it has holes or jets in the floor, the control box is bad and needs replaced. If it is a jetted tub, there may be a water level sensor, if so the sensor may be bad causing the tub to turn on.
