Question about Whirlpool 5"x36" White Bathroom Drop-in Bathtub Spa Jet

1 Answer

We have a Jacuzzi brand bathtub. My wife finished her bath and the on/off switch would not turn the jets off. It has two access panels on the side of the tub. I unplugged the pump and inline heater. Does it need a new on/off switch in stalled. It's the middle button on the top side.

I first would test the on/off switch.
Disconnect the wiring. If the tub shuts off, that would be a sure sign.
You can test it while disconnected by using an ohmmeter on the ohm setting, place a probe on each wire connector on the switch. Should have a good reading with the switch on and no reading with the switch off.

My new jacuzzi 6 jet tub is only working on one side. What could cause that?


Probably control panel or if there are separate pumps for each side, that side's pump probably doesn't have a relay working with bad switch from the control panel.

I have a jacuzzi amiga N890 that when you turn the unit on it just hmmms. It is getting power but does nothing else accept hmmm.


If you turn the Jacuzzi pump on and it just hums and no water flows through the jets then you have a bad pump.
You will need to get the brand name of the pump and the model number before you can begin your search to find the proper replacement.
Bath Pumps each have their own size. You will want to find the exact brand so you do not have to change any of the plumbing.

I have a marble jet bath tub. is there anyway to cap the jet holes, so it is no longer a jetted bath?


Hello,
You should be able to remove the access panel and just disconnect, and cap the hose that is connected to the pump for the jets and then cap the pump nipple, where the hose connects.

This would likely be easier than trying to locate multiple caps to plug the jet holes in the tub.

I hope this helps you.

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.

I know I can take a bath without turning on the jets. However; does the bath water with soap flow back into the jets? I like bubble baths, If I leave the jets off can I use the bubble bath without having...


The soapy water will fill all of the jets, tubes and the pump assembly. Will it hurt the tub if the jets are not running? The soap film will build up in the jets, tubes and pump assembly and can possibly cause damage if the tub is run at a later date. Contact the tub manufacture and see if there is a safe bubble bath you can use.

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...

Many time leaks around pumps are a simple o-ring that needs to be cleaned and/or tightened. If the jets are leaking from the back side then the jet will have to be removed and resealed.
