You need to use your flow gauge to check for proper flow. If the flow is too high, it will definitely cause the pool cleaner to not move properly. There are a few more things that you will want to check. Make sure that the diaphragm does not have damage or wear and tear. If it does, replace it. Backwash your filter and empty the pump basket. Obstructions or debris in them can cause lack of movement. Check for air in system. Raise individual sections of hose about the water and look for cracks or leaks. If the water level in the pump basket drops or you see excessive air bubbles in the pump basket or coming from the return lines, there is air in the system. Check hose connections, tighten all fittings at pump, and check gasket in pump basket for wear.

Creepy not working good suction it sticks to the bottom of the pool and wont move

If it is an actual Kreepy Krawler that Pulsates and you have good suction then you should look k side and see if something is stuck inside the diaphragm or if the diaphragm is torn then it has to be replaced.

Not moving, pulsates slowly

I had a similar problem with mine starting to move and pulsate well enough but then slowing and stopping altogether. back washing the filter solved it. I guess it wasn't getting enough suction as my pump couldn't power through the filter well enough.

I have the zodiac g3 i hear it pulsating but i looks like it has too much suction and it gets stuck and does not move how do i adjust it

You need to use your pool cleaners flow gauge to test for proper flow. Keeping the hose submerged, attach the gauge to the hose and turn on the pump. The red indicator, when viewed from the side, should be at the 3 setting. If the flow is too low, check and clean the pool filter and baskets. If the flow is too high, verify that valves controlling the suction lines are in the correct position, change your flow setting on the Flow Keeper valve, or open the main drain slightly.

Pulsating drone sound when driving

On that car, it's probably one of the brake rotors, if the wheels are torqued unevenly, or too tight, they warp easily.

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.

My baracuda is pulsating and moving but surfaces

The control should be below the water, and if you cut the suction down that should help with the cleaner.

G3 is not moving, but has suction? Please advise.

I had the same problem. come to find out there was somehting stuck in the diaphram. (a piece of mulch). Once I removed it, everything worked fine. Take your Barracuda apart and check the diaphram for blockage.
