The button is normally an air switch. It is attached to a hose that sends the air pressure from you pressing the switch to a pressure activated switch. This prevents you getting a shock since the wiring is at the motor.

First try using something that vibrates to free it up. Just make sure that it's not something that will scratch the button.

If that doesn't work you should have an access panel to the motor on your tub. Pull this off and look for a clear 1/4" poly tube going into an electrical device. Pull the tube off the pressure switch and blow into it to pop the air switch back up.

My Aqualux tub is not working correctly. When I push the button for the jets to start they do but when I let go of the button the jets stop, the button will not stay in place for the jets to work


Hello Sheri Walker

Not finding a lot of answers in the USA... (sorry)...

The really good news is the air parts of these
switches are terribly easy to test.. Could just be a loose nut on the tubing...

You have a bad neumatic switch. Or a small hole in the air line. Try pushing the button fast and hard to see if it will stay on. if so , it is a hole in the tube. if not it is your neumatic switch

Our "whirlpool" tub jets do


sounds like it may be either the air button or the air switch (on motor).
pull the pump and plug into an outlet. take a straw and blow into the air switch where the air tubing was connected. If the pump comes on then you know the button. If the pump doesn't come on then you will need to replace the air switch on the back of the motor.

Purchased new home with a swirl-way avalon jetted tub dont know how to start it please help


is there an air button on the top of the tub? if so that is what you would turn the pump on/off with. give it a push and see. if you do have a button to push like that then make sure the air tubing is hooked up to the bottom of the air button and the other end is hooked to the air switch in the back of the motor.
if there is NO air button to push and just the logo on the top of the tub then you will need to fill the tub with water, get into the tub and then touch the logo. that would turn an older Swirlway tub on/off.

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.

My jets wont turn on


All the electric power source to all jacuzzi tubs all required to be protected by a "ground fault" device. Have you noticed special wall receptacles in your kitchen and bathroom that have 'test' and 'reset' buttons? There may be a receptacle (or something that looks like a receptacle but without any slots for plugs) near the tub. Push the reset button. If the pump for the tub has an access panel, the device may be behind the panel. And last, the circuit breaker in the main electrical panel may be a ground fault type and needs reset there. Good Luck

Power switch for whirlpool tub


the easiest thing (maybe) is to install an air switch kit on the side of your tub. Here is a link to the part. Basically you install an air button on the side of the tub, install the air tubing from the nipple on the underside of the air button to the nipple on the box that plugs into an outlet under the tub. The pump plugs into that same box and the air tubing from the air button pushing onto the nipple on the box. When you push the button on the tub it will turn the pump on/off. Air Switch Kit
