SOURCE: Jetted bath tub has stopped working. Motor hums

I had this same problem on my tub, which uses a GE motor. I looked at the motor, and on one end (the end opposite where the water comes out) there is a hole in the middle. In that hole is the head of the shaft, which has a regular screw tip. Turning this turns the motor. I filled the tub, inserted a slotted regular screwdriver and turned it about 10 times clockwise, then 10 times counterclockwise. You should see the whole motor turn. Doing this loosened it up, and then it started.

Once it started, all kinds or residue came out, which was probably why it had stopped working. I hadn't used it for a while.

After getting it running I'm going to run some cleaning solution through it, and make sure I run it more often to prevent this in the future.

I'm not a professional, just a guy trying to fix his own tub. So take my advise with that grain of salt.

I suggest that you first check to see if the drum and pulley are turning freely, that there is nothing seized. Also, sometimes having a deteriorated drive belt (the one that goes to the drum pulley) can cause the drum to put too much strain on the motor and make it overheat. So it may not be time for a motor just yet, but if everything is spinning freely then you may just have to get another motor.

hi there,

the humming is the motor trying to turn, which means it works. since you did not mention any error messages, it could just be a belt that slipped off the pulley. have you taken it apart yet?

it definitely worth fixing.
