No reset on motor ( that would not cause breaker to trip, suspect heating element, or motor is bad.

SOURCE: Whirlpool pump only buzzes.

Well there are two things....You say "buzzes?" Like pump is running "humming" & not pushing water. That would be an "airlock" in the pump & it needs to be primed.
If it's "buzzing" & pump motor is not turning (Like it's froze) you might have a bad start up capacitor on the pump that needs to be replaced. Worst case scenerio entire pump needs replacement.

SOURCE: We have an American Standard lifetime whirlpool

Chances are that the drain assembly was not part of the tub but a 'generic' plumbing part. Is this pop up drain the type that you push down and it clicks closed and push down and then it pops up? It unscrews from the drain fitting and you can get a replacement at a big box store. A better pop up replacement is one called a Rapid-fit. It drains faster.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My American Standard Whirlpool does not turn on.

Remove access panel make sure pump is plugged in some electricians put a GFI outlet under tub for motor make sure GFI did not trip. Next the switch is an air switch look for the hose going to switch is connected last you may need a new air switch which is common to fail

SOURCE: 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.

Circuit braker keep popping


Sounds like the heating element has gone out again. Once you reset the circuit breaker and the tub turns on it will start to circulate the water. This usually runs like this for about 2 mins and then the tub will recognize it is cold and send power to the heater. If the element is back at that point it will blow the circuit breaker.
If this circuit breaker pops as soon as you turn it on then you most likely have a bad circuit board.

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

You will have more available power (and use a different larger breaker already on your generator) if you use the 220 plug instead of the 115v plugs. Have an electrician make you an breakout box separating the 220v plug into two 115v outlets. Or your can replace the push button breakers with better quality 25 amp. Problem is that the 115v receptacles are probably 15 amp. Other solution is to try a 220v pump instead of 115v (more efficient draws less amps). Good luck

What kinda breaker do i need for an american standard jacuzzi with 125 btus


If you are talking about an electric water heater the breaker would be determined by the wire size and the voltage draw of the water heater. The heater instruction should have this information and recommendations.

High speed on pump motor just hums then trips breaker. low speed works fine.


possibly trying to draw more power than the breaker and wiring are rated for.. check maximum amperage draw from motor, then check breaker.

If breaker is rated lower than High speed amperage draw, then have a qualified electrician install proper size of wiring and breaker.

If not, then the high speed coil of motor may be defective, check for warranty of unit.

Magnum Force Jacuzzi Pump stopped working


No serviced by pool technician. But you can look in your breaker box for a popped breaker, it should be 20 amp and be positioned in the middle instead of on or off position. Kirk
