Question about Jacuzzi Home
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.

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.
