SOURCE: 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.

Zodiac ranger has good suction but doesn't move


Usually if you have good suction with a Baracuda and no movement you either need to clear the diaphragm of debris, or replace the diaphragm if it's got a hole in it.

Check out this video (not mine) for how to pull the diaphragm out.

It's pretty straightforward, just keep undoing things until you get to the flexible rubber bit. You have to check fairly carefully for holes because even the smallest opening means it's curtains for the diaphragm.

Good news is though that Zodiac should have a 1 year warranty on the diaphragm, which you can check by looking at the moulded stamp on the part. If it's under a year old your local dealer should just swap a new one for the old without any dramas.

Baracuda runs for about 5 minutes and then stops sucking


I would first check your filter and pump to make sure that they are clean and free of debris. Also, check the pool cleaners Star Control setting to make sure that it is in the yellow range. The cleaner could be getting improper flow. You might also need to replace the diaphragm.

My g3 isn't working correctly, but if you remove the exterior housing then the inside tube part housing the bladder has suction and works fine. When I put the outside housing back on not much if anything...


It could still be the diaphragm. If it gets worn and stretched it may work without a load on it but with a load it will just open then stay there. The best thing to do is take this to a pool store. They will do the work necessary for just the price of parts. I hope this helps. Good luck.

How to install new diaphram


Page 8 in the users manual for these pool cleaners has a good image of the diaphragm. There is also an assembly break down on page 10. Here is a copy. It should show you exactly how to get the cleaner apart to replace the part.

My Baracuda Zodiac works for a few minutes and


check the diaphragm for debris, damage, or deformity. unthread the collar above the handle and push the tube downward. Inspect the rubber diaphragm, any damage or deformity will cause erratic behavior.

No movement with my g3 baracuda


A small rip or tear in the diaphragm will cause that problem. When you put your hand over the mouth you are creating more suction to the diaphragm. Replace diaphragm.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.


If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

Will not operate and filters are clean and clear-adequate pressure is indicated at cartridge filter


Sounds like you either may have something caught inside of it or the diaphragm is distorted and needs to be replaced. You can remove the diaphragm by unthreading the collar just above the handle, then push downward on the tube. The tube and diaphragm should come out of the bottom. Check to see that it is free of debris and that it's opening is uniform and not distorted. There should not be a huge gap but just a small uniform ****. Hope this helps.
