There are three main manufactures of air switches for pool and spa components.

Len Gordon
Tecmark (Tridelta)
Presair (Herga)

Air switches are inexpensive so it would be advisable to replace them when they fail.
When choosing an air switch be sure to match the your part careful with regards to SPDT, DPDT... also pay attention to momentary or latching switch mechanisms activation style.

Will not turn on, on switch not making contact sound

First of all we need to determine what kind of pump you are talking about.
A Bath Pump will have an air switch located inside the motor compartment that the air tubing from the on switch is located.
That switch could be bad.

Our pool/spa pump will cut off for approx. 20 minutes several times during an 8 hr cycle. It never use to do this. The pump is around 3 1/2 yrs. old.

If the motor is very hot it could be shutting off due to a thermal safety device.

Anything that makes the motor work too hard and/or heat up will trigger this.

Blockage in the water lines
Clogged pool filter
Worn motor bearings
Lack of air flow around the motor
Weak or damaged motor windings.

A defective thermal limit switch will **** off the pump when the pump is within heat and load limits.

any damage to that diaphram will cause the cleaner to not work. If it is only 6 months old then it is under warranty. any pool store should be able to get you a new diaphram at no cost. bring your paperwork with you to show proof of purchase.

My Barracuda keeps stopping after a while. Did the suction test and it is reading 3. Is this too low to keep it running?

3 is perfect. The diaphram is most likely the problem. If the diaphram is more than say..9 months old it can get bloated and not function properly. The only other problem could be is if the cleaner is a few years old the foot pad could be worn out and the cleaner can **** itself to the pool and not move. Most likely the diaphram though.

Spa motor turns on by itself. Noramally air switch activated.

With time you get condensation in the air tube. It has a very low PH and will build an alge block.Once this occurs a change in air pressure or air temp will cause it to trip the switch. So you will need to pull in new tube. It's a good idea to go with a new button when you do this.

Can Baracuda Diaphragm be replaced?

If you can't find any junk in the diaphram or throught. The best thing to do is take it to a store they can show you how to do this and they will not usually charge for more than just the part.

We have an 1hp jet pump pulling water from a 3000gal holding tank below the pump and pressure tank. when we prime the system and bleed out the air the irrigation works properly, the pump starts and stops...

depending on the motors style of start-up, if you have a centrifugal type of start winding switch, your motor may be trying to start on the run winding due to a defective contact on the centrifugal switch, if it is a capacitor type starer, you might have a defective capacitor once again the motor is trying to start on the run winding, a way to find out is to be there and listen to the motor when it tries to start and trips the barker, if the motor emits a loud humming noise you have a fault with the start-up winding control device, if the picture supplied with your post is correct the capacitor is the long cylindrical thing at the top of the motor, you can remove this and bring it to a motor shop, they can test this for you

I have a 2 speed spa motor (K48m2a4) that stopped working at low speed. going to high speed only has circulating power.

Either the low speed circuit is defective or a relay is inoperative. If you feel confident , you could switch the low and high speed leads on terminal plate. The high speed jet button would activate low speed on pump if motor is good.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.

I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
