Put your hand up under the edge of the button and push in the two plastic prongs in and push the switch up out of the spa
they normally just push in and the prongs spring out to hold the switch in place

    they seldom fail as they are only a rubber diaphram that produces air pressure to control a switch at the pump

    Check the air line by removing it and placing the end in a glass of water. pressing on the button will produce air bubbles if the switch is good

SOURCE: Difference tubs and air baths

whirlpool tub has jets that circulate the water, where an air bath uses bubbles that rise gently from the bottom of the tub. Whirlpools are typically used for therapy, air baths are used for a much gentler experience. Air baths can be used with aromatherapy/essential oils. Both offer a spa-like experience.

SOURCE: Jacuzzi whirlpool, air on/off button on tub

If it is a air button that pushes in and comes back up, there is a good chance that the switch (which is mounted on the pump/motor) is bad. If the switch is a touch button on a key pad, the problem is in the control box for the pump/motor.

Push button on my jacuzzi won't start it despite power going to unit


The air button on your tub may be bad and not sending enough air to the air switch located on the bath pump.
The way to check this is to remove the bath pump and see if you can turn the bath pump on by taking a large straw and blowing into the air switch on the bath pump to see if you can get the bath pump to turn on.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you have a bad air button.
If you cannot get the bath pump to turn on then remove the air switch and plug the two wires going to the air switch together and then plugging the pump into a power outlet you know has power.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you need a new air switch in the motor.
If the motor does not come on then you need a new bath pump.

The air switch on my whirlpool tub will not toggle, i must hold the button in to keep motor running.


What you are experiencing when you push the Air Button down and it engages the BATH PUMP but when you release the the Air Button is a bad Air Switch in the BATH PUMP.
When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to move a small switch in the BATH PUMP. When the switch in the BATH PUMP is bad it will not engage.
What you need is a new Air Switch model TBS-339.

The button on the jacuzzi 536 RH will not start the motor when pushed. The motor is tested to work however.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

The unit uses a air switch, you should see a plastic tube going from the switch to the power switch.

remove the tube at the power switch end, and then push the switch, you should feel air, come out.
If you feel air, then you must have a defective power switch.

Whirlpool bath won't turn on.


Most of the control buttons on a tub are not electrical. These buttons are connected to an air line that runs to the motor. Sometimes an aggressive button push can literally blow the air line right off of the bottom of the button.
This problem is as easy to fix as it sounds. Find the loose air line and push it back onto the button. You will need to open up your access panel. Bring a flashlight.
Be sure to check the connection at the motor too. Good luck
