American Standard Motor humms

I have an American Standard Whirlpool tub, when the power button is pressed the motor just hums. The book says something may be stuck in the impeller. So I finally got access to the motor (NO the BUILDER did not leave an access like he was SUPPOSED to) I disconnected the water lines and the nuts holding the motor on but can't figure out how to disconnect the wire for the power button. The way they wrapped the wire around you can't remove the motor. How does the power button come out??

Thanks Claudia

    I mean the wire going from the air accuartor button to the motor. It looks likeit should come apart somehow but I just can't get it off
    Thanks Claudia

    I can't visualize the scene. I wish I could help more. Is there anyway you can send me a picture?

    Do you mean the wire coming from the wall and connected to the motor/button wiring in a housing on the motor?

I think there is a clear or black tube connected to the pump on the back of the black box on top of the pump motor, there is a nut where the tube attaches to the back, unscrew this nut and pull the tube out. If it is not the tube type switch, the pump motor power plug should be plugged into a black or blue control box, this box should have a wire going to the switch in the tub. If you have a buzzing noise, the pump or motor is probably seized, This is caused from lack of use or using bath oils or soap in the tub, When you get the pump and motor out to check, stick a screwdriver in the back of the motor(center of motor hole may or may not have a plug in it) and turn the screw, itshould spin freely with little or no resistance.

t sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

Have an American standard whirlpool tub. the on/off button is stuck on on. now the only way to shut the jets off is to flip the breaker to the bathroom. how do I fix this


This sounds like the air switch in the motor is not working properly. You will need to remove the pump from under the tub to access the air switch located in a housing on the motor.
Replacement Air Switch will cost you about $20

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Whirlpool dryer. When pressing the start button the motor humms. It keeps humming until opened or unplugged. Does seem to generate heat though.

Pushed button to turn on whirlpool - hear motor - jets don't work


if the motor just hummed then it is likely a bad motor. you will need to replace the pump at that point. Bathtub buttons like the one you have either works or they do not. there isn't any in between areas.

My American Standard Whirlpool does not turn on. I push the Power button and don't hear anything. Circuit breaker is on, anyone have any ideas? Thanks!


Remove access panel make sure pump is plugged in some electricians put a GFI outlet under tub for motor make sure GFI did not trip. Next the switch is an air switch look for the hose going to switch is connected last you may need a new air switch which is common to fail

The unit has power. when it is turned on the motor just humms


sounds like the pump is seized, did you put bathoil or soap in the tub? If so the pump has probably seized from this and needs to be replaced.

Whirlpool pump only buzzes.


Well there are two things....You say "buzzes?" Like pump is running "humming" & not pushing water. That would be an "airlock" in the pump & it needs to be primed.
If it's "buzzing" & pump motor is not turning (Like it's froze) you might have a bad start up capacitor on the pump that needs to be replaced. Worst case scenerio entire pump needs replacement.

American standard air tub motor hums


sounds like the motor might be on a dead spot. try turning the shaft of the motor 1/2 turn or so and see if it will kick in. If not you may have a bad motor of some debris in the motor preventing it from starting.
