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.

How to repace switch button


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 and sends the 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.

Push button on my jacuzzi won't start it despite power going to unit


The air button on your tub may be bad and not sending enough air to the air switch located on the bath pump.
The way to check this is to remove the bath pump and see if you can turn the bath pump on by taking a large straw and blowing into the air switch on the bath pump to see if you can get the bath pump to turn on.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you have a bad air button.
If you cannot get the bath pump to turn on then remove the air switch and plug the two wires going to the air switch together and then plugging the pump into a power outlet you know has power.
If the bath pump comes on then you know you need a new air switch in the motor.
If the motor does not come on then you need a new bath pump.

I have a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath model U640 Espree 536 and it wouldn't shut off. I cut the air line off at the pump and nbow it won't stay on for more than a few seconds. Any ideas?


I assume you hooked the hose back up to the air switch on the motor.
There will only be a couple of things to check.
Make sure you have a good connection with the air hose to the air switch on the motor. Sounds like maybe the air switch may be bad.
The Air Switch is a latching air switch so if is broken then it won't latch when the air button is pushed.

Were is the starter switch located on corner jacuzzi tub


Depends on the make of your bath, alot of baths has a crome button on the corner of the bath, flush with the bath top. When you press this it pushes air through a hose and the pressure of the air hits a pressure switch on the motor which turns on the motor.

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.

Whirlpool bath won't turn on.


Most of the control buttons on a tub are not electrical. These buttons are connected to an air line that runs to the motor. Sometimes an aggressive button push can literally blow the air line right off of the bottom of the button.
This problem is as easy to fix as it sounds. Find the loose air line and push it back onto the button. You will need to open up your access panel. Bring a flashlight.
Be sure to check the connection at the motor too. Good luck

Bath tub spa will not shut off


If you haven't done this already. I would search your breaker panel for a circut breaker titled jacuzzi tub (or something to that effect), and if it is not listed I would get someone to monitor when the tub shuts off, while you flip each breaker off, one at a time so as to determine which breaker it is and then immediately title it.
Next, an access panel to the tubs motor should be installed. After access is gained, inspect the pumps receptacle and if it is not GFIC protected I would return to the breaker panel, it may have a GFIC breaker. If neither are the case, then have this issue repaired
The button on your jacuzzi is air actuated with a flexible air line that connects to the actual switch, it may have broken or however became disconnected.

Any questions, feel free... Good luck...
