Check the air vacuum switch and line as you may have a air vacuum leak. The button that controls the on and off to the jets is an air vacuum switch....It may have a slow air leak in the line or connections that is activating the on and off control

SOURCE: american standard air tub motor hums

That motor solution is correct. I called the company American Standard and fortunetly, mine was still under warranty. They sent out a plumber within 3 days to replace the motor and now I'm back in Kansas Dorothy.

SOURCE: American Standard Motor humms

I think there is a clear or black tube connected to the pump on the back of the black box on top of the pump motor, there is a nut where the tube attaches to the back, unscrew this nut and pull the tube out. If it is not the tube type switch, the pump motor power plug should be plugged into a black or blue control box, this box should have a wire going to the switch in the tub. If you have a buzzing noise, the pump or motor is probably seized, This is caused from lack of use or using bath oils or soap in the tub, When you get the pump and motor out to check, stick a screwdriver in the back of the motor(center of motor hole may or may not have a plug in it) and turn the screw, itshould spin freely with little or no resistance.

SOURCE: how do you remove the jets on an american standard whirlpool tub

The jets have a nut on the back of the jet. I hope you have access or else you will need to pull the tub for this job. Loosen the nut and squeeze aquarium grade silicone in between the tub wall and the nut, Tighten the nut, but not to tight. Let set over night fill and check for leaks the next day.

SOURCE: Jetted bath tub has stopped working. Motor hums

I had this same problem on my tub, which uses a GE motor. 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 the head of the shaft, which has a regular screw tip. Turning this turns the motor. I filled the tub, inserted a slotted regular screwdriver and turned it about 10 times clockwise, then 10 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.

I'm not a professional, just a guy trying to fix his own tub. So take my advise with that grain of salt.

Have an American standard whirlpool tub. the on/off button is stuck on on. now the only way to shut the jets off is to flip the breaker to the bathroom. how do I fix this


This sounds like the air switch in the motor is not working properly. You will need to remove the pump from under the tub to access the air switch located in a housing on the motor.
Replacement Air Switch will cost you about $20

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets


The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

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 an american standard jet tub, but i lost


You can adjust the jets by moving the center of the jet around, if the center does not move, it is not adjustable, some jets have a pressure adjustment by twisting the center of the jet left to right. No manual necessary for this.

Water runs very slowly when trying to fill jet tub.


Check to see if there are any screen type filter to the tub as debris may be clogging it. Also air lock can occur but it should not be causing problems as 90% clear them selves.....

We are an electrical contractor. A client asked


There arn't any provisions for ejecting water out of the pumps that i know of. The pipes are installed on the tub so that they will gravity drain back into tub. The pump wouldn't be able to run unless fully submersed in water above the jets, i mean it will but not for long. I would sugest disconnecting elec. to pump until you resolve the issue or else the pump will burn.
-This sounds like some kind of air switch problem. Something is causing the air switch to sense the air pressure excerted through the air hose without the button being pushed. This is the only thing it really could be since the power to the pump goes through this switch. I cant imagine anything else causing this other than a faulty air switch on the pump itself. This would mean the pump would need to be replaced since the air switch is sealed in place at factory. Unless some how, some way, air pressure is increasing in the air hose all by itself, not likely. But check the air hose connections on the pump and the button on the tub, if you can even see it. The hose may be partially attached and any slight movement while partially attached could push air into the switch but thats kind of a long shot. I dont know if a craked or split air hose could cause this to happen but i guess its possible.
-If i had to bet on it i would definatly say the pump switch is defective.
Good luck!.............T.Wood CFE Plumbing
