SOURCE: Jacuzzi whirlpool, air on/off button on tub

If it is a air button that pushes in and comes back up, there is a good chance that the switch (which is mounted on the pump/motor) is bad. If the switch is a touch button on a key pad, the problem is in the control box for the pump/motor.

If the motor hums, it is seized and needs to be replaced. Call a reputable repair tech to make the necessary repairs.

New homeowner. Kohler airjet Master tub after hitting power button only stays on for about 20 seconds. Home inspection working fine I believe


put your ear to the side of the tub and momentarily turn on the jet pump, if you hear a humming sound then you need to replace the pump motor capacitor.

Pump hums but nothing happens


Sounds like the pump impeller is stuck. Shut off the power and check to see if the pump has a small round cover on the end opposite from the pump. Some pump motors have a slotted shaft that you can insert a screw driver and manually turn back and forth to loosen the stuck impeller otherwise drain the tub and remove the pump to access the impeller and attempt to free it.
Hope this helps.

The jets on my Cielo tub will not go on when I press the button to activate the air jets.


This sounds like the motor is either bad or the air switch in the motor is bad or...the air button on the top of the tub is bad.
Remove the pump and take the air switch out of the motor. Then plug the wires that went to the two terminals on the air switch to each other and plug the pump into an outlet you know has power.
If the motor comes on then you know the pump is good.
Now put the air switch back into the motor. Take a McDonalds straw and with the pump plugged into an outlet blow extremely hard into the straw placed into the opening of the air switch. If you can get the air switch to "click" and the pump comes on then you know you have a bad air switch. If the pump does NOT come on then you know you have a good air switch and a bad air button on the top lip of the tub.
Any Questions give us a call on Monday.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

Whirlpool Pump - Hums, no water flow...


The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

American Standard Motor humms


I think there is a clear or black tube connected to the pump on the back of the black box on top of the pump motor, there is a nut where the tube attaches to the back, unscrew this nut and pull the tube out. If it is not the tube type switch, the pump motor power plug should be plugged into a black or blue control box, this box should have a wire going to the switch in the tub. If you have a buzzing noise, the pump or motor is probably seized, This is caused from lack of use or using bath oils or soap in the tub, When you get the pump and motor out to check, stick a screwdriver in the back of the motor(center of motor hole may or may not have a plug in it) and turn the screw, itshould spin freely with little or no resistance.

Jetted bath tub has stopped working - motor hums, will not run


The shaft on the motor should spin freely as should the impeller when attached to the pump. If there is drag on either, replace the pump and motor assembly. I have worked on jetted tubs for the past 5 years, I have seen seized pumps more than once.
