Question about Emerson Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Have Jacuzzi 350 hot tub that we have taken out twice now for repairs at a motor repair shop. The motor does not consistently start up. Will get a hum and need to spin the motor to get it started.

This is an Emerson 1595 - If left unattended the motor gets hot, smells, and shuts down. It has run for continuously after we get it started and warms the water but it does not always restart when temp drops.

These are hard Motors to fix and need an experienced mechanic, centrifugal switches can have the wrong springs or spin on the shaft, capacitorS can be weak or faulty causing runability issues.
When I have one of these I KNOW what to look for and can simulate a load this helps keep customers happy and avoid warranty work.
It could be a dirty start switch, and that's a free repair at my shop. as it only takes a few seconds to diagnose/fix.

SOURCE: jacuzzi nova 532 motor run's but won't stay running

If it has the little oval off/on button, it sounds like the control box or off/on button is bad. If you have access to the pump assembly, follow the pump power cord to the little black box (zip tied to a tube up high), this black box has a small cable that goes to the off/on button. unplug the pump from the box and plug the pump into the power outlet. it should run continuously. If it runs, you need a new control box or /offon button. Buy the off/on button first, as this button is prone to water getting into it, and costs less than the control box.

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.

SOURCE: My jacuzzi tub motor will hum but does not run. I

I had this same problem. 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 a regular screw tip, which can be used to turn the motor. I filled the tub, inserted a slotted regular screwdriver and turned it about 8 times clockwise, then 8 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.

How can we adust the air flow on our hot tub?


when you say it's converted to 220 volts , did you just change the voltage on the pump motor or did you also change the voltage on the blower motor as well ?? reason i ask is you might be feeding a 110 motor with 220 power it's turning twice as fast so it makes too much air , might be your cause ?

Jacuzzi majic touch won't turn on


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.

Jets will not turn on just humms was smoke smelled like something burned.


THAT smell was probably your motor burning up. That happens quite a bit actually however, for you this means you will need a new pump. Get the pump out and look at the pump model and name then you can find the correct solution.

Froze the jacuzzi.


You'll need to start electrical troubleshooting from a point where you have power and then keep testing further into the unit to find out where the power stops. Is there a local 'ground fault' reset button inside the hot tub control area (under the tub?)

Need a users manual


Kathy,

I think what you're looking at are the part numbers for the heater and control systems used in some Jacuzzi hot tubs rather than the Jacuzzi model number. I ran into the same issue and discovered through some cross-referencing on the web (jacuzzi parts suppliers) that this is the part number control unit made by Balboa. Odds are they were used in multiple Jacuzzi models.

My suggestion: Look here http://clearcreekspas.com/model_id.html to identify the control panel for your Jacuzzi and then follow the link to the correct manual. Some cover multiple models so you will need to know the electrical requirements of yours (120 V or 240 V?) and then check the layout of each tub shell to determine which model is yours.

I figured out mine is a Jacuzzi Essence Model 350 this way.

Good luck!

Hi JOEY JIGSAW,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: 2ND MOTOR ON TUB IS HUMMING BUT NO WATER MOVMENT REPLACED WATER TODAY #1 MOTOR IS WORKING IN LOW AND HIGH SPEED BUT #2 MOTOR IS NOT KICKING ON

Definately an electrical problem. First check the switches, if you find a bad switch replace it. Check the wire connrctions. A bad connection will cause great frustration. If you've been carefull with the first two steps and it's still not working it's time to see if # 2 motor has siezed up. Do this only if you know what you're doing. It requires disconnecting the wires to the motor and applying 110 volts from another source directly to the motor wires. If the motor just hums and gets hot, it's time to replace it or take it to a small motor repair shop. It might be wise to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!
