You don't take apart the main body. You just have to remove the flower seal then you have to pry the old one off and grunt and strain till you get the new one on then replace the flower seal. If you bought this at a pool store you should be able to take the head to them and have them do it for you. If you bought it there they probally won't charge you and if you want to do it in the future then you can see it done once. Good luck.

Check your pool cleaners hose to make sure that it is not becoming tangled. Storing the hose in a coiled position will cause this. If it is not moving and it is not the hose, you could have a leak in a connection somewhere. If the cleaner is getting adequate suction, it should be moving. Try adjust the hose weights to make sure the cleaner is at a 45 degree angle to the pools floor.

I need a new main body for my Zodiac Baracuda G3. Does anybody know how to replace that? I can get the part online but the manual doesn't show how to take it apart. Thanks.


The tube/pipe that your hose connects to, counter threads out then the diaphragm near the seal pulls out. Then the large seal is easily to be figured out how to take that off, and then the footpad, also pry's off the flange.
That's about it

Zodiac G3 stopped traveling even though there is good suction.


There are several things that you can check on these pool cleaners if you are sure that the suction is not a problem. Normally, I would start by suggesting you check for blockages and obstructions in the cleaner, filter, and skimmer. However, if you are getting the correct suction, this shouldn't be a problem. I would also check the diaphragm for damage. To adjust a worn diaphragm, loosen the cassette swivel, gently push down on the the inner pipe, and retighten the cassette swivel. Check all hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

My cleaner keeps stopping all the time.


Is it pulsating? If not then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. If this doesn't solve the problem let me know, these cleaners are very straight forward. Good luck!

Is it pulsating? If not then either you don't have enough suction or the diaphragm is bad or clogged. you said it was not clogged so check closely for tears. Very common to have a **** or tear next to or just below the plastic retaining ring that holds the diaphragm on the inner cassette tube. Also check and make sure there are no holes or breaks on the hoses. If this doesn't solve the problem let me know, these cleaners are very straight forward. Good luck!

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.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.


If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.
