Question about Jacuzzi EH0 / EH1 / EG9 Fuzion 6666 Corner Whirlpool with Right-Side Pump...
My jacuzzi tub motor will hum but does not run. I tried filling it up and plunging water into the jets. How can I check the motor. Is the motor located under the pushbutton on the tub? The motor is enclosed.
I had this same problem. I looked at the motor, and on one end (the end opposite where the water comes out) there is a hole in the middle. In that hole is a regular screw tip, which can be used to turn the motor. I filled the tub, inserted a slotted regular screwdriver and turned it about 8 times clockwise, then 8 times counterclockwise. You should see the whole motor turn. Doing this loosened it up, and then it started.
Once it started, all kinds or residue came out, which was probably why it had stopped working. I hadn't used it for a while.
After getting it running I'm going to run some cleaning solution through it, and make sure I run it more often to prevent this in the future.

Turning the motor manually (with a wrench in my case (Jacuzzi Magnum Plus)) worked for me, now the pump is pumping happily away, thank you!

There is a capacitor in the motoe (easily replacable, 10uF) that goes bad. When you replace this the motor will start as norma.
