That is a capacitor. Replace it. If it blows another or hums like that, then get a new motor. Also, see if the motor shaft turns freely.

New homeowner. Kohler airjet Master tub after hitting power button only stays on for about 20 seconds. Home inspection working fine I believe


put your ear to the side of the tub and momentarily turn on the jet pump, if you hear a humming sound then you need to replace the pump motor capacitor.

Have an Emerson model # R63MWENA-4727 on my Hot Tub. Runs continuesly fine. But when I turn the jets on I hear a " click" and it won't run.


It is a problem in the relay of that one motor in your spa electronic control most likely. If you have many jets buttons, you can unplug 1 pump from the control and plug in another relay see if the motor works.. if it doesnt work it your motor if it does work then its the relay in the controle system.

Aqua Glass whirlpool, Indulgence collection, pump turns on and works briefly, then jets stop.


First of all, what you have is a WOW pump that has an E-switch for a control.
There is a knob on the top lip of your tub that you turn a 1/4 turn to turn this pump on/off.
There is a small circuit board inside the box on top of the motor. This is likely the source of your problem.
Here is your biggest problem. That little circuit board is not made anymore. We have the e-switch but you will be better off changing out the pump (which you have to do anyway) with a new WOW pump with an air switch and change the switch on the top lip of the tub to an air button which will turn the pump on/off.

Jets won't stay running


Sound like a bad switch. The contacts are likely corroded or broken.

Pump starts spontaneously without pushing the switch button


This sounds as if a relay has gone out on the circuit board. There really could be no other reason for the pump to come on without pushing the button.
You will need the model number of the control box so you can find a replacement.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Pushed button to turn on whirlpool - hear motor - jets don't work


if the motor just hummed then it is likely a bad motor. you will need to replace the pump at that point. Bathtub buttons like the one you have either works or they do not. there isn't any in between areas.
