Hello Nellie1221,

Your TYPICAL Jacuzzi switch is a FAIRLY SENSATIVE
air-pressure activated button... (common trouble
(in my opinion)).

Quite A POPULAR REPLACEMENT item...
Put up your MODEL of tub on the internet to see
where your parts might be... or get your original parts list
(owners manual)

I would look to eBay (and AMAZON) ...
first before going straight to
Jacuzzi...

Go to Bing homepage

Hope I am helping...

SOURCE: Bathtub jacuzzi (motor turns runs but nothing coming from jets)

Each Jet will have an adjustment many times right on the jet nozzle. Carefully try to rotate them counter clockwise to open up the jet. This assumes you can here the motor running.

SOURCE: heater pump does not turn on Jacuzzi hot tub 325

Heater operates seperate from pumps. Do the pumps come on? Pressure/flow switch turns on heater, so if the pumps work, there is an issue with the heater element, the flow switch will usually prevent the spa from running at all and there will be an error code on the control panel.

SOURCE: Faucet placement on Jacuzzi 6036

If there is room most definitely you can place the faucets on the tub itself. You can mount them on the left rear. However be very careful drilling the holes and make sure you have it aligned correctly before drilling. Check underneath to make sure there is enough room for clearance and hook up. Here is what it will look like. a1da3ad.png

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.

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

Call a local bathtub service company but check to see it the tubing on the back of the motor has come off. If your tub turns on/off with an air button on the top of the tub, that tubing has to be hooked up in order for the pump to be able to turn on/off.

let me know if you need further help. I would need to know what the control looks like on the top of the tub in order to further assist you.

What causes my jacuzzi hot tub to turn itself on.


sounds like you have an electronic system that operates the tub. Many times those get hit with a voltage spike and it burns up a relay on the circuit board and THAT is what make them come on at weird times.
You will most likely need a new control for your tub.

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.

Rapid Heater for Jacuzzi


The light is supposed to be on when the tub is full of water and the pump comes on. Make sure the heater is plugged into a seperate breaker, it cannot be on the same line as the pump.
Look on the heater for a label. If your heater is installed on the discharge side of the pump it should say "pressure heater" on it. If it is installed in front of the pump it should say "Vacuum Heater" on it.
Once installed, fill the tub with water and turn the pump on. If it is installed in the correct position the light will come on when the pump turns on.
