Hot tub jets stopped working

Hello, I changed a spa motor pump recently. It has the usual 1/12 inch input and output connections for water and a small connection on the wet-end to a tube that I assumed took air out of the pump to make the jets go. Anyway, the brass fitting to the tube was bad (rotten), so I changed that - but it leaked between the tube and fitting when I turned on the pump - BUT the jets worked. Then I drianed the tub, and slathered that tube end it with adhesive before slipping it over the fitting. When it dried, I stated it up again, and it doesn't leak, I can hear the motor running, but no jets work, and I am worried that it might somehow burn out the engine ( I couldn't feel any suction on the intake), so I turned it off again.

Do you think that I blocked the intake with the adhesive - would that cause the jets not to work, and not allow proper circulation? Suggestions?

Thank you for you time and help, Dan

Viking V300 hot tub - jets, high and low, will only run about 10 seconds, then stop, then start


This sounds to us like maybe you have an air lock in the system.
Try this:
Turn the pump on and while it is trying to operate, loosen the discharge union on the water pump until it is spraying water (do NOT unthread it very far).
Most of the time if you have an air lock this will solve the problem.

Yes, the jets will run anytime the heater is operational. This is neccessary to keep the plumbing from melting, and also to evenly distribute the heated water. Most hot tubs only take 4-5 hours to heat up, but the easy spa takes very long because they use a very small heating element. Usually only 1.5KW.

Hot tub heating is working but pump has stopped


you may have a system that uses a small circulating pump that circulates the water thru the heater to keep water temp at proper level (this is usually the case with hot springs spas and is because it is the most cost effective way to maintain constant water heat without using a full size pump or two speed pump just to push water past the heater core. therefore the issue is you have a problem with your jet pump and it has nothing to do with the circulating and heating portion of the spa. you can check to see if there are any reset buttons in or near the equipment as well as open enclosures to make sure everything is clean and dry also make use any contacts on spa skirting are secured propertly

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.

No jet flow hot springs highlife 1990


you might have an air lock, when you first start filling the spa, start the water running in the skimmer first. that should force air out of the pump and should pick up prime right away. if not, you may have a valve problem.
