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.

Water circulation is OK. barracuda g3 does not pulsate, hoses are clear


If the cleaner is not pulsating, then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. Your cleaner should have come with a suction gauge that you put on the end of the hose in place of the cleaner. It's a clear tube with a spring and plastic piece inside that indicates high, low, or normal. Use this to check your suction. If you don't have one see if you can get one at the local pool supply house, they may even have one you can borrow. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Has good suction but wont move


Is there a tile stuck in the condom shaped diaphram when you look into the cleaner from underneath. Could be any kind of rubbish make sure you look deep inside as debris gets stuck right at the top.
This diaphram is removable check also that it does not have a hole in it.

Sounds like a clogged or damaged diaphragm. Unscrew the nut just above the handle and push the white tube downward until you can see the white(ish) rubber diaphragm. It should not be damaged or distorted. there should be a small uniform gap inside and should not have any holes other than the two ends. Replace if necessary.

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 baracuda is pulsating and moving but surfaces


The control should be below the water, and if you cut the suction down that should help with the cleaner.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.


I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
