SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: bath tub installation

Okay lets start with the most obvious: Check all studs to ensure they are plumb. I am assuming all sheetrock and tile has been removed. if so measure the distances from the bottom plates on the end walls. it should be 60 inches in the clear. measure the height of the tub from the edge of the skirt that contact the floor to the top of the skirt then measure this distance off on the front and rear studs on both end walls and mark it off. Now measure to see that you still have 60 inches in the clear at both the front and rear locations. Now measure the tub as well to ensure it wasn't mis-manufactured. If all your measurements come in at 60 inches you should be able to bring the tub in and slide it in as it is when it is finished. If you find out that you have less than 60 inches in the clear for the tub you can use a drill and jigsaw to remove additional wood from the studs to get it to drop in. Once in you can fir the wall back out to the original dimension and sheetrock and tile. One thing you need to remember is that you may need to take wood out of bot ends to get the drain to rough in correctly.
I hope this helps you out and thanks for using Fix Ya.

SOURCE: How can I unclog plumbing in whirlpool tub used to clean dogs?

Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

Can't turn on Whirlpool


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, Indulgence collection, pump turns on and works briefly, then jets stop.


First of all, what you have is a WOW pump that has an E-switch for a control.
There is a knob on the top lip of your tub that you turn a 1/4 turn to turn this pump on/off.
There is a small circuit board inside the box on top of the motor. This is likely the source of your problem.
Here is your biggest problem. That little circuit board is not made anymore. We have the e-switch but you will be better off changing out the pump (which you have to do anyway) with a new WOW pump with an air switch and change the switch on the top lip of the tub to an air button which will turn the pump on/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.

The air switch on my whirlpool tub will not toggle, i must hold the button in to keep motor running.


What you are experiencing when you push the Air Button down and it engages the BATH PUMP but when you release the the Air Button is a bad Air Switch in the BATH PUMP.
When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to move a small switch in the BATH PUMP. When the switch in the BATH PUMP is bad it will not engage.
What you need is a new Air Switch model TBS-339.

I have an Aqua Glass Jaccuzzi that I haven't used in 10 years. The last time it was used it worked perfectly. Now I can't turn it on at all. I don't remember is just the round dial that


Check the circuit breaker and make sure you have power to the pump.
If you have power to the pump and it is not operational when the tub is full of water and you are in it then I would say you have a serious problem.
Most all of the older control that Aquaglass has used in the past have been discontinued.
You may want to visit this link and identify your control before you begin t trouble shoot your system.

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.

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.
