I have an Aqua Glass whirlpool tub, and the jets no longer work. When I hit the on/off button, it just makes a clicking sound. Do I need a new pump? If so, what type do I buy?

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.

Aqua Glass whirlpool with a Pentair pump wont turn on.

the pictures are not showing up. Sounds like maybe you have an ITT Marlow pump that has a circuit board on the back of it.
What model number pump do you have? I believe what you tell us here is model number R150VS11-C
If this is the case then what you have is a control with a knob on the top of it that controls the 6 speeds.

The control & "VS" series pump you have is no longer being made. (It hasn't been made for well over 5 years)

Your new system includes the following items:

• New 1.5 hp Pump

• AirStreme Control box and topside control panel

You will change everything from the old system to what comes with the new system.

The new topside panel replaces the one on the top of the bathtub and the pump will hook up to the same plumbing as the old one.

No cutting PVC pipe to get this installed.

Can't find a pump for Aqua Glass model 566042BC

What model of pump? Pumps are changed and identified by the model and brand name of the pump, NOT the model number of the bath tub.

We bought a house with an Aqua Glass jetted tub. When we tried to turn it on nothing happens. At our inspection in July it was working fine. There is no way to get in to the front of the tub and no box. ...

Get the manual and study how it works. Then with this new knowledge you will have a good idea of just what to look for.
Is power reaching the unit? ON/off switch good? Circuit breaker? Is water reaching the unit/valve shut off?

It has to be something simple.

My Aqua Glass Whirlpool tub has stopped working. The motor comes makes a sound when I turn it on but the jets are not working

Your motor is shot. you need a new pump. If it comes on and you can hear a hum then it is bad. If you can get us a model number of the pump we can recommend a replacement model for you.

Aqua glass jetted tub quit working

Hello. There are two reset buttons in the mechanical space or your tub. You should be able to access that area from the front by removing a few screws. it is not uncommon to have to push those reset buttons after a power outage. If you do need a repair I recommend that you call a store that sells hot tubs as they will have a technician on staff or be able to guide you to one. Regards, Joe
PS kindly rate my answer as helpful.

Aquglass jet tub will only humm no bubbles out of none of the jet

When a motor hums, it usually is the result of what is called "locked rotor." This can occur when the motor's brushes remain on one pair of the commutator contacts. The magnetic field does not shift to the next set of windings and the rotor is locked in place by the unchanging magnetic field.

If you have access to the motor, turn on the power briefly and place your hand gently on the side of the motor. Probably you will feel the vibration of the hum you are hearing, together with some heat. In locked-rotor condition, the motor draws high amperage and heats up quickly. Turn off the power.

If this is the condition, the motor is shot and needs to be replaced. You should copy down the information from the name plate (model and serial number, manufacturer, horsepower, amperage, etc.) and contact the manufacturer or a local appliance parts store about a replacement.

As you said that you recently bought the house, you may have a home-owners warranty which may cover the appliance.
