Barracuda G3 pool cleaner sticks/stops at wrinkle in liner

I have a barracuda g3 in ground pool cleaner that I bought from an estate sale. Every time it crosses a wrinkle in the pool liner it stops moving. It didn't have a hose weight when I bought it.(just ordered one) Would this be causing the problem or could it be something else?
Thanx, Larry

SOURCE: Barracuda Zodiac G3 is not pulsating. It's got

either some debris is caught in the diaphragm or it's deformed enough to render it inoperable. Unthread the nut just above the handle and pull it apart, then push the white tube downward until it comes out of the bottom of the unit. Inspect the diaphragm to see it there is any debris in it or if it is deformed. Usually the diaphragm has a uniform opening, if the gap is wide, it will not function. The most common problem is that the diaphragm needs replaced. Hope this helps.

We found out tpday that we have 19 leaks in our inground pool liner which is not quite 2 years old!! The only thing we've changes this year is we purchased a Barracuda Robotic pool cleaner. Have you ever...


It will have a strong suction to the pool floor and could grind bits of sand into the liner. You might want to try a Arneson Pool Vac.
Be sure they put cork feet on it though so it goes easy on the liner.
If and when you replace the liner be sure to put an under-liner down first. This will help with problems that run along these lines.

Barracuda not moving


You could have too much suction, something stuck in the diaprahm, a torn diaprahm could do this or if it is sticking to the drain you will have to shut the drain down.

My boyfriend purchased a barracuda G3 2 days ago. After installing it worked really well for approx. 2hrs then the pressure increased to 20 eventhoug he had backwashed the pool and it was very clean. What...


Try backwashing again, this cleaner will pick up enough dirt in a couple of hours to clog the filter. Untill the pool is clean you need to backwash and check the baskets, (skimmer and pump pot) Probally two to three times in the first day, then once after a couple of days. After that you can get back to a regular routine.

My Barracuda inground cleaner keeps the same cleaning path.


mine does this too. I was told that the cleaner learns a path and sticks to it. You have to switch the sections of the hose around or just twist them to a different position so it will take another path. Unfortunately, you have to do this quite often to avoid it sticking to the same path around the pool.
