My spa blowers have turned on twice by themselves while in pool mode. They came on at highest speed. Air button not functional to turn off. I had to turn off at breaker in order to shut them off. Has anyone experienced this? Could it be the air button or something electrical? Thanks in advance.

My bet is the air button is malfunctioning.

I removed the air button but the tubing was not attached. It appears the pool builder had ducktape at the end of button but tubing no longer attached. It may have blown off with the pressure of the blowers coming on at full speed by themselves twice. Any ideas how I can retrieve the tubing to replace air button? It appears the builder put some type of silicon glue to hold button in place and it goes down the 1" hole. I can't tell if it is damage tubing or silicon.
