Question about Jacuzzi NOVA 5 WHIRLPOOL WITH INTEGRAL SKIRT H270-969

Jets won't stay running

The jets in our tub run if we hold the on/off button but won't stay running once we let go of the button. All air actuation seems to be working properly, the filter is not clogged in any manner, and you can hear the switch activating the pump (little click noise). Any ideas how to correct this? I'm trying to avoid taking off the pump to look at the switch box on top of it.

When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to the air switch located in the motor. When there is not enough air sent by the air button on the top of the tub it will not make the air switch "latch" in the closed position and means you need a new air button.
In your case the air button is sending enough "air" however when the air switch is not "latching" in the closed position that means the air switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
Most air switch's can be replaced with a TBS-310

SOURCE: We've had a whirlpool tub with jets for 2 years.

check behind the access door for a air tube that goes from motor switch to button if either side has come off you have to re attach it just cut off 1/4 inch of the tube before you do. that will make it fit tighter

Actually you can ground them to the copper pipe...any piece of metal material that comes in contact with the earth...hence the word ground....so water supply line or if you ran conduit..and a receptacle box (metal...) you could ground it to that....'

I hope this helps...good luck...thanks for rating my effort...the Fang.

SOURCE: jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

you have a bad motor - when a motor overheats there is a sensor inside the motor that will shut if down so as to not damage the windings and such. once your tub has cooled down for 10 mins or so it will turn back on. the fact that you can push the button multiple times just means that you are turning the air switch on the back of the motor on/off until you get to the point where the motor has cooled down and will turn back on. if you do not push the air button after the tub shuts down and you finish your bath then when the pump cools down it will come back on because the air switch in the motor is latching i.e. it is either on or off. Since you left it in the on position the motor will come back on once the motor has cooled down.

SOURCE: Lasko pump motor in jetted tub comes on when

you can check to make sure there is water to the front of the pump. What they use on their tubs is called flooded suction pump i.e. there has to be enough water to the front of the pump end to **** it through and push it up and out of the wet end.
fill your tub up and loosen the discharge union on the top of the pump until water starts to come out, quickly tighten the union back down and then see if you can get the pump to start pushing water.

Some air jet bubbler blowers are designed to run for 5 to 10 minutes after you drain the tub to push all of the water out of the air channels. It should shut off on its own once it senses all of the water has been blown out. If it continues to run much longer than that, then contact the mfg for a service call. You have a warranty if it is a recent purchase that should cover it. Hope this helps!

How do you clean the jets in a whirlpool tub? Is there any product to put in water and run jets to clean them?


Put white vinegar in the water and run it through your tub. Fill the tub to it's maximum running capacity, which is normally just above the jets, and pour a gallon of vinegar in the water with it. Let it run with the vinegar for about 20 minutes, then turn it off and let the vinegar sit in the jets for about 30 minutes. Then start up the jets again for about another 10 minutes and drain. Then run plan water through the jets for about 15 minutes, drain and that should do it. I would recommend doing this at least once every 2 months depending on your water type and how often you use the tub.

I have a walk-in jacuzzi-type bathroom tub. When the automatic blower comes on it sends out a mildew smell. How can I get rid of it?


First of all, after each use, refill the tub with warm water and run the jets for about 10 minutes to clear out any excess debris etc.

To eliminate the smell/mildew/mold. :
-Fill the tub to above the jet level with HOT (over 140deg.) water
-Add two tablespoons of low sudsing dishwasher detergent and five cups of distilled white vinegar
-Run the jets for 20 minutes
-Drain the tub and use a tooth brush or any small brush to gently clean inside and around all of the jets and nozzles, remove all foreign material you can from the areas inside (disassemble the outter rings to do so) and around the outlets. Be as thorough as possible.
-Rinse and refill the tub with CLEAN COLD water and run the jets for another 20 minutes.
-Drain the water and the smell and mildew should be eliminated.

To prevent future mildew build up/odors once a month fill the tub with HOT water (again) and four to five cups of vinegar (no detergent) and run the jets for 20 minutes. Drain and fill with clean cold water running jets another 20 minutes. If the tub is used very often you can increase the scheduled flushing of the system to every two to three weeks. The mildew/mold flourishes in the warm wet areas inside the jet tubing and nozzles. Diligent maitenance is the best way to make sure you're not bathing with any unwanted guests in your bathwater!

-Take care

Can not get the jets to work


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

Cold air coming from jets in a large garden tub indoors


jets pull outside air in thru the water jet in a natural Venturi action. If you are referring to the air bubbles in a bathtub then, yes there are air blowers that have heaters inside them to warm the air before if goes into the tub.
