Either the diaphragm is bad or has some debris caught in it. Remove the nut above the handle and push the white tube downward to see the diaphragm. It should be uniform in shape and should not have a very large opening inside. If it's distorted, it's best to replace it.

Stuck barracuda


It is probably not a problem with the shoes. These pool cleaners (and automatic pool cleaners in general) often get stuck on the main drain since the implementation on the new anti-entrapment drains. There is a ring that you can buy that goes on the drain. It is designed specifically for preventing pool cleaners from getting caught on the main drain.

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.

Barracuda don't move


what do you hook your vacuum to in the pool? does it have suction? it may be clogged. if so you can blow it out if you have the equipment. it may be you don't have enough suction and all you need to do is adjust one of your suction side valves to fix this problem. if you don't have dedicated valves you can plug one of you other suction lines to give your vacuum more suction.

Barracuda not bouncing or moving to clean pool


Check suction at cleaner. Could be broken hose, bad or dirty impeller, incorrectly set valves, dirty filter, clogged line and probably a bunch more things.

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.
