Is this a new hot tub or a used hot tub?  If new, call your dealer.  If used, how old is it?

How are you checking the temperature?  From the LCD display or a thermometer?  Just so you know, those thermostats aren't super precise, I would consider them to be +/- one degree Fahrenheit.

Where are you located?  If you're in a hot environment, it may be that you shouldn't set it at 104. 

Running the jets for a minute wouldn't lower the temperature from 107 to 104, if that's what you were expecting.  The blower sucks air into the tub from behind the skirt, so that air is heated, although not as much as the water.  It would take a while to make a noticeable change in the water temperature.

What do you mean you didn't hear anything when you turned off the jets & blower?  If you turn them off, you shouldn't hear anything, so I'm thinking that's a typo?  Or am I misunderstanding you?
