Replacement pump for parents whirlpool tub
« on: May 19, 2019, 07:59:28 AM »
Hi all.  I'm hoping someone can direct me to a site where I can purchase a replacement motor for my parents whirlpool bath.  The motor was burned out when some contractors my parents paid cash to left the pump on without water (for who knows how long).  This appears to be an older model and I can't seem to find the same one, but I'm thinking there is a replacement out there.  Can someone recommend a place online (maybe and ebay member that has a plumbing supply store who might be able to help out).  Pics are attached below.  Thanks for your help.

I Googled around a bit and couldn't find a specific replacement pump, not even at Kohler's own site https://www.us.kohler.com/us/catalog/maintenanceLanding.jsp.  There is an 800 number if you're in the US --- 1-800-4KOHLER --- or you can visit their customer support site (https://www.us.kohler.com/us/static/contact.jsp) and maybe they can give you a different replacement pump that would work.

Looking at the parts list for a similar tub which used the same Kohler pump ---  https://www.us.kohler.com/onlinecatalog/pdf/106791_0787.pdf ---- it shows on page 5 a listing of replacement parts for the pump.  Could you just fix their pump using this info?  Also on page 2 it lists a possible other pump instead of the Kohler one in your folks tub, a Marlow Gemini which might make a suitable replacement if you can find one.
