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.

Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going

IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch

My jacuzzi bath tub makes a humming noise when I turn it on, but it will not operate. I tried again later, and still nothing, and not even the hum now.

Pump was humming, suspect air lock, pump could of burnt out, check power to pump and if it blows fuses then you will need a new pump and don't forget to bleed the pump

I have a Jacuzzi tub and the vacuum switch will not turn the tub off. I had to turn the breaker off.

if when you push the air button it will not turn off the pump, it may be the button that is bad on the top of the tub or the air switch located in the motor.
take the pump out and plug it into an outlet. get a straw and blow into the air switch with the pump plugged in still. if it comes on then the button on the top of the tub is bad. if it doesn't come on then the air switch is bad.

1980's jacuzzi bathtub, won't turn on (seems to be the kind when you push a button in to turn on), no outside electrical panel, no clear point of access (tiled on side of tub) - where do we start?

you will need to open up the back of the tub where the pump is and see if there is a clear tube about 1/4" OD attached to the backside of it close to the pump cord.
If it is there then you will need to check out the air switch on the motor that the air tubing attaches to to see if it is good. If it will activate the pump when you blow into it with a straw then the air button on the top of the bathtub is probably bad and needs to be changed. if it does not turn the pump on/off when you blow into it then you will need a new air switch.

Jacuzzi had not worked for about 2 years. I took the door off to check for moisture and I noticed the air switch was disconnected. I replaced the switch and the motor ran for about 2 seconds and stopped....

sounds like the air switch didn't latch. you may need a new air switch in the motor to make it work again.
the way to check this is to remove the pump. plug it into an outlet and take a straw and blow into the air switch on the motor. if you can get it to come on then the air button is bad on the top of the bathtub. if it will not come on/off then the air switch is bad on the motor.

The switch is availiable online. google "jacuzzi air switch" and you should have several sites to choose from. There are pictures of the switches, just pick the one you need and buy. I have purchased from most of the suppliers online and most are very reliable.

Jacuzzi Magnum Force Pump not working

The number one problem is air leaks.......check all connections to see that they are tight, and rubber seals. The intake side would give you trouble with air leaks. If you dont find any leaks then I would pull the pump cover and check the impellor. Pool stores have parts and lots of knowledge.
