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.

Good suction, no blockage in hose but very little vibration and it does not move. Cannot see anything but daylight through the cleaner itself. Help!


With cleaner underwater, check suction at bottom of cleaner. If good, then remove diaphragm and check for a rip or tear. If suction low at pump and good at skimmer, check the hoses.

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 Zodiac G3 is not pulsating. It's got


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.

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.
