I just had the same problem. Did everything I could find on the Internet. Ended up calling he pool guy. Guess what? There is a small tube inside the suction part. He replaced that and voila it works! The one that was onside it had a small slice on it that wouldn't allow for flow through it. He said even a sharp leaf will slice it and it won't work. Hope h
This helps.

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.

My g3 is not working, took it to pool store and they replaced diaphram, but still not hopping or moving, suction is good but now movement.


There are a couple things to check with these pool cleaners when they stop moving. Use Pool Pulse to insure proper flow through the cleaner. Clean baskets and filter to ensure that you are not clogged. Check hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

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.

Use Pool Pulse to ensure proper flow. It could feel ok on your hand, but you need very precise pressure to power these pool cleaners. If you are not familiar with how to use the Pool Pulse feature, take a look at the users manual below. They have a step by step guide to this feature.

Even with good pressure the cleaner barely moves


If you are sure that you have adequate pressure (main drain closed, no leakage, proper flow), it is probably your diaphragm. Check the diaphragm for damage or wear. If you see that there is damage or wear, replace the part. This should solve the problem with the pool cleaner.

MY POOL CLEANER WILL RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES, THEN STOP. SO METIMES IF I SHAKE THE HOSE IT WILL START AGAIN. ANY ANSWERS?


Hi , most pool cleaners run by the force of the sucked up water moving gears inside the cleaner .. if yours is this way, then any blockage in the cleaner or in the hose attached would restrict the flow and keep the cleaner from moving.

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.
