This is a problem common to all whirlpool/air jet style tubs. The pumps become air locked due to the water evaporating from lack of use. All tubs need, and have, SOME means of priming the pump, this is most likely what the problem was, originally, for you. This time in particular you found it to be electrical in nature but for future reference, for you and all who have these style of tubs, I am putting this out there. Some where on the tub, usually along the top edge of the tub is a vent knob that controls the amount of air that the pump is allowed to mix with the water for the jets, usually by closing this valve all the way (tub needs to be full of water of course) and running the pump for a minute or 2, you should be able to get the pump pumping water again, if not you may need to do something else with your particular set-up to get it purged of air, the pumps in jacuzzi tubs are designed to pump water, not air, so if the motor is running but you get no jet action, your most likely air locked and need to prime pump/purge air.

Sounds as if you may need a new switch to turn the tub on/off. You can find one on our site www.uspartscenter.com

First, disconnect the air hosing from the back of the pump. Reconnect a new vinyl hose to the back of the pump, and blow into the other end. If your pump turns on/off by doing this, see 'A," if not, see "B."
A. The electronic switch in the pump is good, and there is a problem with the air switch or vinyl tubing. The vinyl tubing could be kinked or the air bellows has failed.
B. The electronic switch in the pump is bad, the capacitor is bad, or some other electronic part of the pump is bad. Buying a capacitor or an electronic switch is of course a cheaper fix than to replace the entire pump.
Hope that helps.

no not really the only way to fix it right is to open up the walls. this is a common problem with these units, the best thing you can do is contact the manufacture who made it and ask them what to do.
