My pacer baracuda turns upsige down on its back and stays like that during filtering

lay out hose straight as possible in water and see if hose has "memory" to twist one way or other , this causes swimmers to turn over , also ck speed if it's over (point) .5 inch per second then swimmer is set too fast , slow setting

Baracuda stopped working. it is not vibrating but not moving

it ended up being that the hose had a kink in it. It's working fine now.

Baracuda pacer is moving to fast

There is a regulator available that fits on the end of the hose in the skimmer. The more suction the wider the valve opens maintaining a consistent flow through the hose. Part #W60050 about $30

My baracuda classic falls on its side and stays that way being useless on the bottom of the pool. How do I solve this?

This information applies to a Baracuda G4 model only. My G4 would climb the wall at the deep end, lose suction, fall to the bottom of the pool and invariably land on its side or back.

The problem was the blue egg shaped buoy, as its called. Mine had signs of wear and there was even a hole in it. I replaced it and the G4 now works fine.

When I turn on the pool, the pacer works for about 5 minutes then just gets stuck on the wall. If I turn off the pool and reset, it starts again then stops. How can I decrease the suction or adjust the...

You need to use the Pool Pulse feature to control the flow of water through the cleaner. Here is a brief overview, but if you need more details, consult page 6 of the users manual for this pool cleaner (below if you don't have it).
"Remove the cleaner head. Attach the Pool Pulse to the end of the hose and keep it under water. Turn on the filtration system.
• For pools with one skimmer, flow is automatically regulated by the Flowkeeper Valve. Insure the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse is in the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with two or more skimmers, leave the selected skimmer open and slowly close the other skimmer(s) until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with a wall vacuum fitting, leave the wall vacuum fitting fully open and slowly close the skimmer valve until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).

Keeping the hose under water, remove the Pool Pulse. Submerge the cleaner head, and when the bubbles stop coming from the extension pipe, attach the hose end. Your installation is now complete."

The Zodiac Pacer Baracuda keeps turning on its side of upside down. what is causing this?

Probably not getting enough suction to hold it down on the bottom. Have you backwashed your filter ? Try that and see what happens

I have a baracuda pacer pool cleaner and it seems to run in the same direction and doesn't clean the whole pool how do I solve the problem

A coupe of things you can try. Either add one hose length or take one off. If that doesn't help, you can reverse the hose positions.(take the first one off, and put it last. Change all of them) Also, changing the amount of suction may help.
