The only place I'd expect to find a reset button is on the motor itself. That is, unless it's a ground fault problem, in which case it might be on another ground fault outlet somewhere in the house (possibly a bathroom or garage outlet) OR on the breaker - check the breaker box to see if the breaker's tripped or the GFE button needs to be reset.

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.

Air Buttons have a threaded body that has a nut on the underside of it that holds it in place. You will need to get the under the tub to get that nut off the button body to remove it and get it changed.

First of all make sure you have the tub filled with water to a level above the jet inlets. They normally have a sensor to prevent the tub from starting dry.

Next, check and reset any GFCI electrical receptacles that might be on the same circuit as the tub. They are the wall receptacles that have the 2 little buttons in the middle. Look in the bathroon, adjacent bedroom, closets etc.

The only other thing you can really check on your own is the air tube leading to that metal switch on your tub. The switch is not electrical for safety, it is a little air pumper with a plastic hose attached to it leading to an air powered actuator on the pump. Sometimes the hose dries up / comes loose / falls off. Check if there is an access panel on the tub where you can look inside and see if the plastic hose is still attached at both ends. You might even be able to unscrew the metal switch cover and lift it up and see from there. Otherwise try fpumping the metal switch (firm repeated pushing) to see if that will activate the pump. If that does the trick then it is probably just a loose connection / leak on the air hose such that it is not quite airtight.

Good luck and please comment back if this was at all helpful or if you need further assistance.

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.

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.

The problem you are experiencing tells me that the air switch in the motor most likely the problem.

Sound like your pump may have a leak into the electric motor part of it through the shaft seal.
Or it could just have junk stopping up the lines or the pumps impeller. Hair often finds it's way into these things and screws them up!

My jacuzzi tub will not come on . fist it was making a humming sound , i turned it off checked the reset plug tried to turn it on and not a sound

mine did the same thing. the tub is plugged into a ground fault interupter (gfi) plug. hit the reset button. if this doesn't work, check the circuit the gfi is on, sometimes they are on the same circuit as the plugs at the sink. check them for reset also. if this fails, on the motor of the tub, there should be a reset button. try to reset it. OH first make sure the breaker has not been tripped.
