Kohler whirlpool will not shut off and sounds like about to blow

My wife was taking a bath and turned on the jets. At first, the tub worked fine and then when she went to turn the tub off the button was stuck and the jets would not shut off.

Sounds as if you may need a new switch to turn the tub on/off. You can find one on our site www.uspartscenter.com

The water jets in most spas are adjustable so you can turn the water flow down to just a trickle if you want to.
You don't take current spa jets out of the spa. They are held in place by a couple of tabs. Through the years the chlorine/bromine will deteriorate those tabs and the spa jets will start "popping" out when the jets get turned on.
If you pull the jet insert out the socket they are in, you will ruin the jet insert and it will need to be replaced.

I have a jetted tub that the air switch does not work properly on. It will turn on, then you have to disconnect the line to let air out of the tube for the button to come back out. It will then shut the...


This actually sounds like you have some calcium built up on the inside of the air button.
Take the trim ring off the air button and pull out the center button.
Get some soft emery cloth and run it around the outside of the center button and well as the inside of the button body then reinstall.
That should solve your problem with a sticking air button.

Kohler led lighting and jacuzzi motor + jets stopped working but automatic line clearing air still blows when tub is emptied.


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.

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

Oil type substance is streaking down the side of the tub and apperars to be coming out of the jets any ideas how to fix it


This sounds like bacteria coming from the water lines. When was the last time you ran a cleaner through the jets?
You should run a good Jet Clean type product of Maintenance Product in order to prevent the build up of bacteria in the water lines when the bath tub is not in use.

Maxx jetted tub quit pumping water, pump motor just races.


When the bath pump runs and you get no water going through the jets in your bath Jet trim then the impeller has probably spun off the shaft of the motor.You will not know if this is the case until you take the bath pump out and remove the front cover of the bath pump and check the impeller.If this is the case it usually has to be replaced.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

I have the zuma whirl pool tub. the jets go on


This is an automatic feature to dry out the pipes and prevent mold. The next time you turn on the pump after leaving these tubs for a few weeks you get lots of black **** in the water and this is what this feature prevents. Sounds like the tub is working fine :)

no not really the only way to fix it right is to open up the walls. this is a common problem with these units, the best thing you can do is contact the manufacture who made it and ask them what to do.
