Indeed, that sounds like it has suffered fro ma power surge. You can look up on Google maps in your area for a qualified repair man, or you can try and tackle the job yourself, though if you do not have experience with 220v services I would strongly advise against this, as it could lead to a fire and or electrocution.

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.

Whirlpool does not turn on. Kohler Model K-1474-V


The chances that is problem you are experiencing is related to the suction cover is extremely remote. The suction assembly doesn't have anything to do with the tub motor operating.
The issue is most likely with the motor not working or the air switch in the motor malfunctioning.
What does the control look like that you use to turn the pump on/off?
Is it an air button or an electronic switch?

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

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

I have a kohler jet tub that has never been hooked up properly. There is a clear plastic hose from the on off switch inside top of tub. Where soes it get hooked to the motor to make it work?


yes. that clear hose goes onto the air switch on the back of the motor. once that is hooked up if you push the air button then the pump should turn on/off for you.

When you depress the air presure butoon on the kohler whirpool tub a clicking sound is heard but the motor does not run. There nis powewr to the receptacle that the pump/motor is connected to.


What you need is a new air switch for the back of the motor. The air tubing connects to it on the motor. that is probably what is clicking when you push the air button on the top of the tub. Once you change that air switch you will be back in HOT WATER !!
Should be a TBS-310 or TBS-301 latching air switch is the one you need. Either of those models will work in a Kohler pump.

Where to buy a Kohler air switch and air button?


Most of the control buttons on a tub are not electrical. These buttons are connected to an air line that runs to the motor. Sometimes an aggressive button push can literally blow the air line right off of the bottom of the button.
This problem is as easy to fix as it sounds. Find the loose air line and push it back onto the button. You will need to open up your access panel. Bring a flashlight.
Be sure to check the connection at the motor too. Good luck

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.
