Question about Zodiac Baracuda G4 Automatic Pool Cleaner Ne221

1 Answer

Baracuda G4 shakes

Brand-new installed today. Shakes while operating. Could it be due to air in the line? How does one get the air out? Tried using the jet and the water hose.

What is the right way (direction facing) to put a new foot pad on a Barracuda G4? I notice on the the new footpad that one end is a straight cut while the other is rounded. Does the straight cut end face...

The best way to install the foot pad is to the install the flat part of the cassette to feed the foot pad into the grove (as you turn it). It always always works best when warm, so if the foot pad has been out side and it is cold, then it will need to warm up.

When the foot pad finishes, the flat part will be towards the back and the rounded part towards the front of the cleaner.


Unthread and remove the cassette. Holding the Baracuda G3, press down on the yellow clip while pulling the foot flange toward you. Pull off the old footpad and stretch on the new one. Insert the locking clip of the foot flange into the large opening, push forward to lock into place insert the cassette and tighten.

If you need any additional information, please do no hesitate to ask! We all work hard here at Fix Ya and appreciate your feedback as well.

Hocked my g4 up to my filter but there is no movement in the g4

If your pool cleaner has no movement at all, check the following things. Your baskets and filter should be clear and free of debris. If there is something clogging either or they are full, the cleaner will not work properly. Check the diaphragm inside the cleaner and make sure that it is not work or damaged. They are easy to replace if that seems like the problem. Use the Pulse Point feature to make sure that your flow is adequate. If it is too high or too low. adjust it and test again. Finally, check for air entering your line. Check your connections to make sure that they are tight and have no visible cracks. Check your hose by lifting one section at a time out of the water and watching for cracks or breaks.

Just wondering if my baracuda cleaner can be run with the pool cover on. In ground pool with steps.

Much better if you have the hoses that sink, not float. The action of the hoses rubbing on the cover will affect where the cleaner goes. I would suggest not cleaning while pool is covered.

My Baracuda pool cleaner doesn't work at all

While the cleaner is in the water, see if there is suction on the bottom of it. If not than you probably have a bad hose.(Broken) If there is a lot of suction then the diaphragm probably is either worn out or has a rip or tear in it.

Get stuck in the pool corner

try adding a hose length or taking one piece off. Also you can try increasing or decreasing the suction.

Baracuda G4 won't clean whole pool. goes to a corner and stays

Maybe your hose needs to be reprogrammed by unhooking and lying it in the sun for several hours.
