Question about Home
While I was in the tub I had turned the jets on and when I was finished using the jets I turned them off. When I did in a few seconds the jets clicked right back on just like I had push the button to turn them on when I had not. I pushed the on/ off button and it went right back off but in just a few second it clicked right back on the like I had turned it on by using the on/ off button again when I had not. The jet kept doing this until I had someone come unplug the system. Could please tell me what could be causing this?

The button is normally an air switch. It is attached to a hose that sends the air pressure from you pressing the switch to a pressure activated switch. This prevents you getting a shock since the wiring is at the motor.
First try using something that vibrates to free it up. Just make sure that it's not something that will scratch the button.
If that doesn't work you should have an access panel to the motor on your tub. Pull this off and look for a clear 1/4" poly tube going into an electrical device. Pull the tube off the pressure switch and blow into it to pop the air switch back up.

SOURCE: Our "whirlpool" tub jets do
sounds like it may be either the air button or the air switch (on motor).
pull the pump and plug into an outlet. take a straw and blow into the air switch where the air tubing was connected. If the pump comes on then you know the button. If the pump doesn't come on then you will need to replace the air switch on the back of the motor.

SOURCE: Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going
IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch
