kohler whirlpool start whenever

I have an older Kohler whirlpool (Tea for Two) that I installed and worked fine (occasional slight delay in starting). I shut off the breaker to work on a vanity light installation. When I threw the breaker back on, the tub would start on its own. At first could shut it off. Then had to turn the breaker off to keep it from coming on spontaneously. The only way I can use it is to turn on the breaker and then wait for it to come on. It stops after about 20 minutes (normal I think). But then won't restart or restarts/tries to restart later, sometimes multiple times. I have to shut the breaker off, or it will keep going on or trying to go on. Runs fine when it gets started. I am thinking it is the starter button and/or a timer problem. Any thoughts?

Whirlpool tub does not turn on

All of the above info was very helpful, but my air jets are still not working. I have an American Standard Lifetime whirlpool tub. The motor is getting power. The air actuation switch seems to be working - you can hear the switch clicking when you depress the button. And I have made sure all the jets are wide open. Still no joy. The tub is brand new, but was unused for quite a while while the rest of the property was being finished. It did run OK at one time - we tested a few months ago. It seems like the pump is just not turning on for some reason? There is no humming, just the clicking of the switch. Any ideas???

Thanks for any help!
I have an American Standard whirlpool tub and if it isn't used for awhile, it will not come on. If you fill the tub with hot water so that it sits in the pipes for awhile, it always comes on for me. So, if I am not using it for some time, I try to fill it up to the top of the suction area and run some hot water through it.
