We purchased an american standard whirlpool corner tub, installed it and 5 minutes after plugging it in the heater somehow turned itself on and caught on fire almost burning down a brand new home and the wiring was all correct on it.

Usually there is a safety pressure switch that requires there to be water in the tub and the pump to be running before it will allow the heater to come on. Either this switch was faulty or the controls for the tub were wired incorrectly, that's about all it could be

My american standard jacuzzi tub doesnt work. It's plugged in, but the push button doesn't engage anything. It worked before I removed it to install ceramic tile around and under it.


check the air tubing coming off the back of the motor. that tubing should connect from the air switch on the motor to the bottom of the air button on the top of your tub.
if it is not connected then it will never turn on.

My American Standard spa tub Williamsburg Elite Model 2425E has a couple of the eight jets failing to jet, the two on either side of the rear left corner.


sounds like maybe the jet faces are turned off. see if they turn one way or the other and they may open and spew water out for you.

Are they white flakes? Sounds like you have lime deposits turning loose in the plumbing.

Was the unit purchased and installed new? Maybe the privious owner had a hard water problem.

In either case, you may have to invest in a water softener.

Instructions for American Standard Safe-T-Heater #9075.120


Once the heater is installed and the whirlpool pump is operating, the heater is totally automatic. The heater will help maintain the temperature of the water in the bath. The heater is equipped with a preset pressure switch. The pump must be running with water flowing in the whirlpool to allow the heater to turn on. The Indicator Light light turns on whenever the heater is operating. The heater includes an exclusive "Intelligent High-Limit". This safety circuit will not "false trip" from hot tap water. It will only turn the heater off if the thermostat fails. If the high-limit trips frequently, call a service technician. To manually reset the circuit in the event that the "High-Limit" switch has been activated, simply (1) Turn off the whirlpool pump. (2) Drain water from the tub. (3) Remove power from heater by unplugging at receptacle or turning off circuit breaker. (4) The heater circuit will automatically reset in less than 15 minutes. (5) Restore power to the heater. (6) Whirlpool bath is now ready to use.
Good Luck,
