Question about Jacuzzi 6800-959 Nova 6 Whirlpool Bath 6'- White

1 Answer

I have a Nova 6 jacuzzi whirlpool jetted tub. The magic control air switch will not work. If I remove the side panel and disconnect the small air tube a small puff of air will both turn on and turn off the tub. Where can I find instructions on where to purchase a switch, how to replace this air switch, and is there a repair service in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thanks

The Magic Touch system has been discontinued by Jacuzzi Whirlpool.
You will need a new air switch kit.

Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

SOURCE: No heat with Rapid Heat U395000 Jacuzzi jetted tub

when you changed the heater did you make sure you also changed out the temp sensor cause most of the time calciun builds up an is the reason for both the heater an sensor to fail calcium is ok at temps above 93.6 degrees but as soon as the temp drops below this point it will come out of solution an start to harden on the element an sensor.Always make sure to that you are getting power from the spa pack to the heater check for voltage at the main leads on the heater just because it says its on does not always mean you are getting power to the heater.Always remember with spas the problem lies where the power dies.sometimes it can even be your main top side controls they can go bad an indicate the heat is on but will not relay that to the heater.make sure you got the correct kilowatt heater also an that you have the correct one in terms of 240v or 110v also from the thousands of heaters i have replaced in spas over the years i always check to see if i am getting the correct omhs reading before i install them should be around 8-10 for a 110 an 12-13 for a 240

you have a bad motor - when a motor overheats there is a sensor inside the motor that will shut if down so as to not damage the windings and such. once your tub has cooled down for 10 mins or so it will turn back on. the fact that you can push the button multiple times just means that you are turning the air switch on the back of the motor on/off until you get to the point where the motor has cooled down and will turn back on. if you do not push the air button after the tub shuts down and you finish your bath then when the pump cools down it will come back on because the air switch in the motor is latching i.e. it is either on or off. Since you left it in the on position the motor will come back on once the motor has cooled down.

I have a Espree 536 and need to replace the magic air switch. The tub is enclosed with a tile mosaic front which I do not want to have to remove if at all possible to replace the switch.

it is possible that the switch is held in place by a nut from underneath
see if you put your hand up under the panel to see if there is a nut there

My new jacuzzi 6 jet tub is only working on one side. What could cause that?

Probably control panel or if there are separate pumps for each side, that side's pump probably doesn't have a relay working with bad switch from the control panel.

Jets won't stay running

Sound like a bad switch. The contacts are likely corroded or broken.

Jets won't stay running

When you push the air button down it sends a column of air to the air switch located in the motor. When there is not enough air sent by the air button on the top of the tub it will not make the air switch "latch" in the closed position and means you need a new air button.
In your case the air button is sending enough "air" however when the air switch is not "latching" in the closed position that means the air switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
Most air switch's can be replaced with a TBS-310

The problem you are experiencing tells me that the air switch in the motor most likely the problem.
This is a latching air switch that operates when the button on the side of the tub is pushed.
The replacement TBS-339 air switch is around $21

I have a jacuzzi corner tub. The control panel

I would expect there is a Jacuzzi dealer in your town and I would guess he has parts. If you purchase parts locally, not only are you helping your neighbor but also, you will have the opportunity to pick his brain on tips to install.

Jacuzzi nova 532 motor run's but won't stay running

If it has the little oval off/on button, it sounds like the control box or off/on button is bad. If you have access to the pump assembly, follow the pump power cord to the little black box (zip tied to a tube up high), this black box has a small cable that goes to the off/on button. unplug the pump from the box and plug the pump into the power outlet. it should run continuously. If it runs, you need a new control box or /offon button. Buy the off/on button first, as this button is prone to water getting into it, and costs less than the control box.
