you have a bad motor - when a motor overheats there is a sensor inside the motor that will shut if down so as to not damage the windings and such. once your tub has cooled down for 10 mins or so it will turn back on. the fact that you can push the button multiple times just means that you are turning the air switch on the back of the motor on/off until you get to the point where the motor has cooled down and will turn back on. if you do not push the air button after the tub shuts down and you finish your bath then when the pump cools down it will come back on because the air switch in the motor is latching i.e. it is either on or off. Since you left it in the on position the motor will come back on once the motor has cooled down.

you will need to open up the back of the tub where the pump is and see if there is a clear tube about 1/4" OD attached to the backside of it close to the pump cord.
If it is there then you will need to check out the air switch on the motor that the air tubing attaches to to see if it is good. If it will activate the pump when you blow into it with a straw then the air button on the top of the bathtub is probably bad and needs to be changed. if it does not turn the pump on/off when you blow into it then you will need a new air switch.

Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going


IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch

Sound like your pump may have a leak into the electric motor part of it through the shaft seal.
Or it could just have junk stopping up the lines or the pumps impeller. Hair often finds it's way into these things and screws them up!
If it's leaking there will be some water showing below the pump unit.....

Jacuzzi whirlpool bath not working when i turn it on i get a buzzing sound


buzzing sounds tend to be a motor problem. You may need to change the pump. When you turn it on it just buzzes? that indicates a bad motor.

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.
