Yo Dennis,

When I had to replace a switch on my unit I had the same problem. Jacuzzi uses double sided tape to hold the switches in place and they are a bear to get off. Try some dental floss or fishing line under the switch body to "saw" through the tape and lift the switch out. Maybe use a hair dryer first to try to soften the adhesive, but at 19 years it may be rock ??.

You may have to pry the switch out (!!) with a screwdriver (rag underneath) and the old plastic may grenade. A new one may be needed.

Be prepared for very little slack in the air line. I had a hard time reconnecting mine and ended up having to add a couple inches of tubing with adapters. No fun. The switches are mounted from below at the factory, so slack is not an issue.

All the best.

We turned on our soaker tub, ran it for a bit, then it wouldn't turn off. I then flipped the circuit breaker off and now the tub will not start when you push the start button. Model B950.


If the switch is an air type switch check the tubing connected from the switch the control for kinks or pinched spots. This could be the cause of the problem. Hope this helps.

Find air switch for aker swirlbath


Air Switch Repair
It 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. You need part # TBS-310

The problem you are experiencing tells me that the air switch in the motor most likely the problem.
This is a latching air switch that operates when the button on the side of the tub is pushed.

Power switch for whirlpool tub


the easiest thing (maybe) is to install an air switch kit on the side of your tub. Here is a link to the part. Basically you install an air button on the side of the tub, install the air tubing from the nipple on the underside of the air button to the nipple on the box that plugs into an outlet under the tub. The pump plugs into that same box and the air tubing from the air button pushing onto the nipple on the box. When you push the button on the tub it will turn the pump on/off. Air Switch Kit
