I've had the same problem with my K 1496, which has the same installation instructions as your 1014. I called Kohler and got a very nice tech support woman, who said the usual cause of this problem is that the GFCI breaker has to be wired in a nonstandard way. The installation instructions on p.9 show how to do this (the wire that normally goes to GFCI neutral goes to the ground bus instead), and they'll send you the instructions as a pdf file.

You have a bad capacitor its located on the top of the electric pump motor. Be sure to turn off the power before attempting to replace it.

New homeowner. Kohler airjet Master tub after hitting power button only stays on for about 20 seconds. Home inspection working fine I believe


put your ear to the side of the tub and momentarily turn on the jet pump, if you hear a humming sound then you need to replace the pump motor capacitor.

The air switch on my Kohler 1151-RA whirlpool tub is stuck, pushed in and will not eject out


When the air button stays in the down position it can be because of a couple of things.

  • The air bellow is broken and there is no air in it or the spring is broken and will not push the button back up and needs to be replaced.
  • There is calcium built up on the inside of the air button so that the tolerance is too large and therefor makes the button 'stick'
To solve the second issue with calcium build up. Take some emery cloth and wipe the inside of the button until it is smooth.
You should be able to get the button back up gently with a small wire placed between the button and the wall of the air button body.

I have a Kohler whirlpool. When I turn on the pump it leaks under the crawlspace.


Hi,
Most likely the seal at the pump shaft is bad and the water leaks out as the motor is running...this can be fixed by an experienced plumber, but is rather difficult and parts are hard to find.
Replacing the whole pump and motor may be the best option...

How do I remove jets to clean them? I have a


Some jets are removable for cleaning and some are not. Consult Kohler about the jet removal. Normally if a jet is removable it will turn to the left (looking at the jet straight on) and then will pop with a little more force. I suggest contacting Kohler before attempting to remove the jets.

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

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor wont turn on


We had the same thing happen to our Aker brand whirlpool tub.  The fix was a replacement timer/control piece which is connected by two wires to the pump behind the tub (access wall) and plugged into the outlet; however, this cost $150 for the part and $85 for the service call (all he did was take the part out and ship me the replacement part which was easy to do).  Problem I have now is that the motor won't shut off unless I unplug it.  I am waiting for a call back from the repairman who sent me the part.
