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

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.

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.

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.
