Make sure to check the diaphragm inside, check for deformity or debris stuck in it. You can take the unit apart just below the wagon wheel and push the white tube downward to expose the diaphragm.

Our zodiac works for a while then stops. The moment you lift it, it starts sucking again and goes for and while and stops! Check the filter basket, backwashed, checked the weir all seem fine - now what...

check in internal diaphragm for deformities or debris. un-thread the nut at the top of the unit and push the white pipe downward, when you pull it out of the bottom of the unit, check the condition of the rubber diaphragm. should only have a narrow uniform opening. if its wide open or deformed, it may be causing you some problems.

Our Zodiac Barracuda pool cleaner isn't working

you may have a bad diaphragm inside the unit. Unthread the nut between the "wagon wheel" and the lower unit and remove it, push down on the white tube until it comes out of the bottom of the barracuda. Inspect the rubber diaphragm for debris and deformations. If the diaphragm has a large gap inside, it won't work properly. It needs to have only a small uniform gap, they can sometimes even look completely closed when they are new. Replacing the diaphragm will most likely make the unit run like new again.

My new Pacer is sucking but doesn't move around the pool

check for debris inside the diaphragm. also check to see if the diaphragm is distorted, the sides of the **** should be parallel and should not have a huge gap or hole. You can check it by unthreading the stem just under the "steering" wheel, then push downward on the white tube and it should come out of bottom of the unit, the diaphragm will be connected to the white tube. Inspect and replace the diaphragm if needed.
