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.

Sounds as if the 'mode' for the tub is set to sense the temperature of the water. see if there is a setting on the control box to a 'timed' setting for filtering and heating instead of controlled by the temperature setting. the problem is the the control box is away from the water and when it calls for heat it is because the water is cooler there than in the hot tub. so when it calls for heat and the water starts to circulate it gets the hot water from the body of the hot tub and then shut down because it senses the 'hot water'. make sense?

SOURCE: single knob for shower and tub wont stop running

I had the same problem, you need to shut off your valves and remove the handle that turns the water on and off. You need to turn the chrome front piece counter clockwise to remove it from the front of the unit. Pull the ball out and you should see 2 rubber o-rings with springs inside. My guess is that you have a bad o-ring that should be replaced. After you buy the kit from your local Home Depot, Lowes etc, you install the pieces the same way you removed them!

Heat works until thermostat calls for aux heat, then blower shuts off with outside unit still running.


Some blowers shut off depending on the system. Do you have electric hest strips inside? If not the blower will shut off. The outdoor fan should not be running if in defrost mode. If you have heat strips then you likely have low voltage wiring crossed

I have a one handle shower/tub faucet, and when you run straight hot water (to preheat for example) the water shuts itself off. Lever is still in the lifted/on position however. Cold is fine, even warm...


If this is a newer valve what is probably happening is the valve is a scald guard valve and is shuting itself off when it senses no pressure on the cold side. I don't have a lot of experience with am. std. valves but I'm sure you can get instruction on line to set heat setting on valve higher. Thank you.

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

American Standard toilet constantly runs


The rubber cork thst lifts when you press the handle is leaking by and causes the water level to drop below shut off level so it trys to maintain the the shut off level every minute or so. Replace the cork with one made with the red rubber. good luck

Water Temperature Fluctuates


no the tub faucet is the only faucet that is wide open you might have to not run full blast on the faucet , your tankless water heater is under sized for the application, to many gallons per min going thru the unit, look at the rating chart for your unit, the r94 is only 9.4 gallons per min, and a tub faucet can be upto 5 gallons per min, depending on the faucet,,

I have an american standard air tub and cannot get the air jets to shut off.  They turn off, but come back on automatically a short time later.  How do I shut the power off?


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

Usually there is a safety pressure switch that requires there to be water in the tub and the pump to be running before it will allow the heater to come on. Either this switch was faulty or the controls for the tub were wired incorrectly, that's about all it could be
