SOURCE: 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.

If you can, adjust your intake valves so more of the suction is coming from your vacuum and less from your skimmers. This will allow the the vacuum to climb out of the deep end.

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

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.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRR1Gsps8Js

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.

Barracuda has plenty of suction but hardly moves around the pool, goes very slowly


You likely just need a new pad on the head. When they ware down they allow the head to get closer to the surface that it's cleaning, but the additional suction makes it difficult for the head to move.

I hope this helps you!

Wont move,has suction but wont move?


If cleaner is pulsing, you probably have a worn out foot pad and it should be replaced. If it not pulsing, you probably have a ripped or torn diaphragm and it needs to be replaced. Also, make sure there is enough suction.

Baracuda alpha 3 has suction but will not move makes a humming noise.


Their is probally a small hole or tear in your diaprham and will need replacement. If you take it to a pool store they will probally do this for you just for the price of the part.

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

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.

Changed the fin on the baracuda, but it still does not move around the pool, can fill the suction if I lift it up, but it does not move.


If you have good suction at the head you may have a bad diaprham or something stuck in it. If you have suction but it is weak check for cracks in hoses or you may have a clog in your pump impeller.
