Probably not getting enough suction to hold it down on the bottom. Have you backwashed your filter ? Try that and see what happens

Zodiac mx8 wheels are not turning

Hey Sergio,

If they wheels are not turning, the A or B side direction control has quit working. Normally they have drive 1 shaft in each run that wears down over time, losing friction on the shafts for the wheel to make the wheel rotate. If one side has gone out, I'd recommend replacing both and take a look at your wheels also. Normally these all wear out around the same time.

Why won't it sink to the bottom?

Air trapped in the unit. They do not float unless air is trapped. Turn upside down under water to relieve trapped air.

My baracuda classic falls on its side and stays that way being useless on the bottom of the pool. How do I solve this?

This information applies to a Baracuda G4 model only. My G4 would climb the wall at the deep end, lose suction, fall to the bottom of the pool and invariably land on its side or back.

The problem was the blue egg shaped buoy, as its called. Mine had signs of wear and there was even a hole in it. I replaced it and the G4 now works fine.

Zodiac Baracuda Zippy Pool Cleaner only clean one pool side because strong jet don't let move to other side

If you don't have directonal eyeballs on your jet's you can get a dirveter for the jet that will push the water down the wall rather than out into the pool. Get these at your local pool store. Baracuda and Kreepy Krawlie both make them.

I have a baracuda pacer pool cleaner and it seems to run in the same direction and doesn't clean the whole pool how do I solve the problem

A coupe of things you can try. Either add one hose length or take one off. If that doesn't help, you can reverse the hose positions.(take the first one off, and put it last. Change all of them) Also, changing the amount of suction may help.

My Baracuda Zodiac works for a few minutes and

check the diaphragm for debris, damage, or deformity. unthread the collar above the handle and push the tube downward. Inspect the rubber diaphragm, any damage or deformity will cause erratic behavior.
