SOURCE: hot tub pump will not

This can be one of three issues.
1.  Starting capacitor as you have suggested.  You can take the capacitor to a motor shop and have it tested or test it yourself if you have a meter that will check capacitance. 2.  Low/High voltage.  If the voltage is not at the proper levels (10% up or down) then the unit may have a hard time starting. 3.  Something might be binding up the impeller.  Disconnect the power and carefully check to see if the shaft of the motor spins freely. 4.  A short in the windings.  If none of these seem to be the problem, then you will probably need to replace the motor.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.

Check for voltage at the pump, before assuming the relays are out... then check for voltage before and after the relay contacts

The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

When I push auto and start the lights go on and the time, but then it goes off. Why?


Hello. Is this unit less than 1 year old? If so, anything defective is covered under the warranty(parts and labor). After 1 year, certain parts are covered, however, no labor is covered. Make absolutely sure the door is closed properly--there is an internal door switch that must be closed(tells the main board it's okay to start the cycle) or nothing will happen and produce the exact symptom you describe. Next, the unit could be experiencing an error condition causing the shutdown. Make sure the water supply to the dishwasher is turned on(and always run the hot water in the sink before starting the dishwasher to ensure hot water gets to the unit). Next, do you hear the drain pump working? A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump immediately to remove any standing water in the pump before letting in fresh hot water. If the drain pump is jammed or clogged, you might hear a soft humming sound only(from the motor trying to spin) and then the dishwasher will shut down due to it detecting a malfunction. Check the float switch in the tub to make sure nothing has gotten underneath it(ex. a spoon or fork can become lodged underneath and the dishwasher thinks there is already water inside and won't fill) I hope this helps you!

Great lakes hot tub humming sound


You either have a locked pump, impeller or stripped impeller on the pump shaft. Remove the jet pump assy and repair the pump and or impeller. You can also replace the pump assy.

I have a St. Maarten tub and the #1 pump does will


the problem with the pump #1 sounds like a capacitor, unless the bearings have seized, it's the start/run capacitor or possibly the inner switch but that is not as common. Humming and then turning off is textbook sign of a bad capacitor or seized bearings, if the pump has not been running loud or whining, it definitely the cap.

Jet pump will not shutt off after I replaced heater relay. Tub is a hot springs landmark with an IQ2000 panel the year is also a 2000


it sounds like the pump relay may be stuck closed. Also check the temp readout, if it thinks the water is too hot it will try to cool the water by running the jets and sometimes the blower as well.

Pump does not pump water


Hi there. Not necessarily. Inside the pump the impellor is plastic. Sometines the fins deteriorate to the point where the pump hums but won't move water. Other times the pump hums but won't actually run. The pump is generally fixable. If you are handy you can remove the pump and take it to any pump repair shop to be reconditioned, usually for about $50-75.

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water...


you have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped
