There are several steps that you want go through to find the problem with your automatic pool cleaner. Check for air in your system, including hose connections, all fittings at the pump, checking the gasket in pump basket for wear.Make sure that your filter is backwashed and your pump basket is empty. Make sure that your main drain is closed and use your water flow gauge to make sure that you have enough water flow. Finally, check the diaphragm for wear and tear and replace if necessary

G3 head makes humming sound & doesn't move, why?


There is either debris in the diaphragm or the diaphragm is worn out.

It's the yellow flexible part that creates the pulsing action for this vac.

My Barracuda keeps stopping after a while. Did the suction test and it is reading 3. Is this too low to keep it running?


3 is perfect. The diaphram is most likely the problem. If the diaphram is more than say..9 months old it can get bloated and not function properly. The only other problem could be is if the cleaner is a few years old the foot pad could be worn out and the cleaner can **** itself to the pool and not move. Most likely the diaphram though.

Has good suction but wont move


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.

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.

Zodiac Barracuda stops moving


Depending how you hook it up to the pool you need to be sure it is getting enough suction. If this is a dedicated line be sure that the valve is going all to the cleaner and back off till the pump quiets down. If you have it running through the skimmer be sure the dirveter valve is set to the proper suction and if you have a skimmer plate be sure your main drain is plugged off. Also check in the cleaner again. Things can hide in the diaprahm so be sure to use something that will let you go all the way beyond it or take apart to check if you have to. Good luck.

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.
