    Hi,

    Old Villeroy & Boch whirlpool bath is unreliable.
    The small control panel shows:
    * power light is on: red light when no water, green light when there is water in the bath reaching above the jets.
    * all the other buttons are off and not working and I cannot start the whirlpool.

    It was working fine when tenants moved in but stop working soon after. I bought the house with the whirlpool already in, i think it could be 15/20years of age. There is no access to the pump as there is no bath panel but it has been tiled instead.

    Is there a way to know if the problem is with the pump or if the problem is with the electronic of the control panel or could it be anything else?

    Can I lift this little control panel to check without breaking it?

    Who is qualified to check or repair, an electrician or a plumber?

    Thanks.

    Letty

    Would suggest you are going to have to consider taking the tiles off if they haven’t consider access. You probably aren’t going to learn much from lifting the control panel. Although it does appear to have power

    Get in touch with Villeroy and Boch, quality piece of kit. I'm sure they'll keep you right with what model it is and or the MI for it, might not be cheap though depending on what it needs.

    Front panel certainly needs to come off.
