Question about Home
The jets in our tub have stopped working. I don't know what kind of tub it is - there is no name on it anywhere. There is also no access panel so I can't get to the motor or plumbing. I don't even know whether it circulates air or water.
I do know that it's probably pretty old. The house was built in the 80s.
Can someone tell me where to start?
How do you turn the tub on/off? if it is a Logo that you touch when the tub is full of water you get in then it we need to know the model number off the box under the bathtub. it will have several wires coming out of it including a wire going to the pump.

The first step is to determine if the pump is working or not. Is there an external switch on the wall next to the tub? Can you hear the pump humming underneath? CHeck your fuse box to see if a breaker has been tripped.
I know those sound easy, but its always best to check the simple things first.
If you don't hear the pump running and its not the breaker, it has now become a bit more difficult project but still something any competent home owner can fix.
YOu have to access the electrical plug on the tub. It is 110v outlet that is underneath the tub on the same end as the switch or opposite the drain.
You needs to access the tub through the wall from the other side and check out that electrical connection. Could just be the the GFI switch thrown. If not then it cold be a bad pump or broken impeller.
For help if that's the case just post again as it is a length process.
