Sounds like maybe you have a touch pad that turns the pump on/off?
usually have problems with those after a few years and some power surges. Can you tell me the model number of your pump and I can tell you what you will need to solve this problem?

Jacuzzi Asteria will not turn off

How do you turn this on? If it is an air button that you push, it may well be the air switch in the motor is bad. The air switch is latching so when you push the button on the tub it closes the switch and lets the power go to the motor. When the button is pushed a 2nd time the switch will open and shut off the power going to the motor.
An air switch will cost about $21 to purchase.

Jacuzzi air on/off button on tub jams in when you turn it on and doesnt want to turn off

This is is a problem that develops over time. The center of the air button can get calcium built up and the close tolerances of the button and the inside of the button body will begin to stick.
Take some soft emery cloth and run around the inside of the button bosy and the outside of the button then reinstall and see if that will prevent the button from sticking in the down position.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on

In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

I have a U.S Whirlpool Jacuzzi tub that has been installed for about 6 years but have only used 5 or 6 times. We have not used it in over a year and now we cannot get the motor to run. We checked the...

Call a local bathtub service company but check to see it the tubing on the back of the motor has come off. If your tub turns on/off with an air button on the top of the tub, that tubing has to be hooked up in order for the pump to be able to turn on/off.

let me know if you need further help. I would need to know what the control looks like on the top of the tub in order to further assist you.

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.
