There is usually a one-way flap that won't allow water to come back towards the air-blower, if it gets stuck shut, the air won't work.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Where is the flap?
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
On the outlet of the blower.

How do we check to see if it is the that is stuck?
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
You would have to remove the blower motor.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It appears that ours has valve about 3 feet from the blower motor. Would this be it or is the one-way flap inside a pipe?
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
It's usually right at the outlet of the blower

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX One last question. The jets are only working at one speed. I can hear the contacts closing when i press the button, but the pump motor does not speed up. Any thoughts
Expert:  Dave replied 7 years ago.
Possibly a dirty contact on the relay or a bad solder joint on the circuit board.
