You will need to get your head rebuilt at a pool store. But the problem with it getting stuck in the stairs is from currents that develope in the water. So you will need to redirect the clean water returns so they aim down into the pool and away from the stairs. This should fix the root cause as it were.

Zodiak G4 Get stuck in corners steps ect.


Check a couple things when these pool cleaners are getting stuck on steps and in corners. Is the correct length of hose being used? It might be necessary to shorten. Make sure that the ideal flow is being achieved. Add hose weights 3 feet from the cleaner head. You might need to also install a wheel guard (part # W83278). This wheel delfector will also work if the cleaners are hanging on the ladder.

InBaracuda got stuck in stair - on releasing it I found a black spot on wall and the suction rubber was soft and sticky.


You cleaner was probably overheating from being stuck on the stairs. To ensure that the pool cleaner does not get stuck on stairs, there are a few things that you can do. Utilize return flow by making sure that your return inlets are pointing downward and toward the center of the pool during cleaning. Confirm that you have proper hose length. Adjust the flow to your cleaner or adjust hose weight. Finally, you can install a wheel deflector if necessary.

My zodiac baracuda gets caught up in the corners of my pool constantly. What should I do?


If these pool cleaners are getting stuck on corners or other obstacles, try these solutions. Try using Pool Pulse to lower the flow. If you are getting too much flow, the cleaner will stay along the edges of the pool and in corners. You might also need to adjust hose weights. You can adjust your return flow lines in the pool. If they are directed toward the corners, try moving them down and center to direct the cleaner in the correct positions in the pool.

Zodiac has suction but doesn't move


With these pool cleaners, that is often a problem with the flapper. Check the flapper to be sure that no debris is stuck. Debris can halt water flow and movement, making your cleaner get stuck.

Baracuda gets stuck


Usually this can be fixed by redirecting thr returns in the pool down the wall or anywhere that will break up any currents in the pool.

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.

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.
