Question about American Standard 2770.018w.020 Cadet Whirlpool White

1 Answer

Two jets stopped working

One of the jets in the back of the tub stopped working a few weeks ago and now the second jet in the back has quit working. The tub is only a year and half old and is in a vacation home/rarely used. The tub is built in, so access to the works is limited.

Most of these jets turn to close. Check if you turn the nozzle. Hope it helps

Why do jets turn on, then shut off?

the motor protection device is sensing to many amps. could be a flow restriction or the pump motor bearings are going bad.

My Jet 7 is going really slow even when I changed the battery.

Mine is a jet3 ultra and I had this problem a few weeks ago and I thought it might be the batteries.
Turned out that the connection at the control arm was quite dirty.
Once cleaned it works OK ... you could try that.

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.

Viking V300 hot tub - jets, high and low, will only run about 10 seconds, then stop, then start

This sounds to us like maybe you have an air lock in the system.
Try this:
Turn the pump on and while it is trying to operate, loosen the discharge union on the water pump until it is spraying water (do NOT unthread it very far).
Most of the time if you have an air lock this will solve the problem.

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets

The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

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 :)

Jets shut off...

Most jetted tubs turn off after 20 to 30 minutes. It is a safety feature as well as a thermal protection feature for the motor. I doubt if there is anything wrong with your tub. If you contact the manufacture of the tub, they will most likey confirm what I have said to be what is going on. If it was a hot tub, like the ones used outdoors, this would signify a problem.

Whirlpool washer model number wtw5540sqo makes a whining all of a sudden. The warranty just expired a few weeks ago

We've had a whirlpool tub with jets for 2 years. About a year ago, the jets stopped working--i.e. you push the button and nothing. Whe have it hooked up to one of those cool water circulator things that...

check behind the access door for a air tube that goes from motor switch to button if either side has come off you have to re attach it just cut off 1/4 inch of the tube before you do. that will make it fit tighter
