If you have no suction it is probally in the pump, you can check for suction where the hose hooks to wall.If you have suction there than you have a clog in your hose or in the head itself. If you don't have suction there check your pump basket and pull the basket with the pump off reach in the hole behind it with screwdriver or needlenosee and feel for a clog at the impeller. Also check to be sure the pot lid seal is in good shape and soft enough to seal. If none of this helps then you may need to get a repairman out to look at it.

Barracudu wont go up the walls anymore and seems to get stuck in corners

Check your filter. It may be dirtier than it once was. If Sand Filter, use a "Sand Filter Cleaner" to soak the sand & remove the particulate that normal backwashing won't remove. If cartridge filters, then the elements need to be soaked overnight with a Cartridge filter cleaner. If DE, then - grids need to be removed and even possibly cleansed (mild acid wash) then recharged with fresh DE.

Or... check internals of pump. The impeller may be plugged where the flow is reduced. Internals of the cleaner itself, is also suspect. check for any sucked up large debris: pine cones, toys, plastic bags, etc. You may also have a pinhole or larger in the suction hose. Do you have a dog or critters (possums, squirrels, raccoons?) they have been known to Attack the hose and the teeth put holes into the hose. Just a minor hole will affect the efficiency of the operation of a suction style cleaner.

Baracuda X7 stays at the deep end of the pool

With these pool cleaners, there are several things that you can try to get your cleaner to move around your pool. Check to make sure the hose is long enough to reach all ends of the pool and that it has proper hose balance. Check the return line water flow and redirect as necessary with an eyeball diverter.

Zodiac x7 quattro won't move, even with the flow set right.

unscrew the collar just above the handle and push the pipe inside downward. visually inspect the diaphragm for debris or damage. This is the most common cause, given you are confident the suction is sufficient.

Zodiac X7 only 4 months have problems with Parts, had to replace all lower parts and now the flex hose fitting is bad.

It should work on Vista 32-bit. It says explicitly in the manual that it WILL NOT work with 64-bit Vista. I think you're out of luck, dude.
