Wirlpool bath pump doesn't stay on.

Kohler whirlpool pump doesn't stay on. Brand new. Emerson pump #180528 1.25hp. Kohler tub #K-1239-HR. Possible airswitch problem? Please tell me how to get the airswitch button off. It's pretty tight. When I press the button it comes on for a second then stops. Worked great last week then only worked after pressing the button multiple times now doesn't stay on at all.

If this is a new unit you need to complain to whoever you bought it from. somehow it doesnt surprise me with the kohler name on it. I used to work for a company that sold mostly kohler stuff.

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.

I have a HydroAir Magna Series Whirlpool pump model #LD7AC that will not shut off with the airswitch. The airswitch does not appear to be disconnected nor does the tubing appear to be clogged. Any...


If your bath pump LD7A-C will not shut off when you push the air button then the AIR SWITCH in the motor needs to be replaced.
This is a pretty common problem with Bath Pumps and easily fixed.

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.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor wont turn on


We had the same thing happen to our Aker brand whirlpool tub.  The fix was a replacement timer/control piece which is connected by two wires to the pump behind the tub (access wall) and plugged into the outlet; however, this cost $150 for the part and $85 for the service call (all he did was take the part out and ship me the replacement part which was easy to do).  Problem I have now is that the motor won't shut off unless I unplug it.  I am waiting for a call back from the repairman who sent me the part.

New bathtub chipped


You should ask a lawyer for advice on who should fix it, but there are kits available to patch chips like those. You apply it as a liquid and then wet sand it. They are fairly easy to apply, and inexpensive.

How to identify make and model of old whirlpool tub?


This is a problem common to all whirlpool/air jet style tubs. The pumps become air locked due to the water evaporating from lack of use. All tubs need, and have, SOME means of priming the pump, this is most likely what the problem was, originally, for you. This time in particular you found it to be electrical in nature but for future reference, for you and all who have these style of tubs, I am putting this out there. Some where on the tub, usually along the top edge of the tub is a vent knob that controls the amount of air that the pump is allowed to mix with the water for the jets, usually by closing this valve all the way (tub needs to be full of water of course) and running the pump for a minute or 2, you should be able to get the pump pumping water again, if not you may need to do something else with your particular set-up to get it purged of air, the pumps in jacuzzi tubs are designed to pump water, not air, so if the motor is running but you get no jet action, your most likely air locked and need to prime pump/purge air.
