"I easily recommend this cleaner" 2010-08-13
By Cynthia L. Warren (kansas)
I had an easy time setting this up and I am a stickler for following instructions to the letter. I was very pleased when it started chugging around the pool and sucking up all that was in it's path. I am thrilled with how it climbs the walls - the slopes and the vertical walls alike. I have not had any problems with it getting stuck on the stairs. It just goes around them and doesn't clean them so I just brush them and that's that. I had a little trouble with it cleaning the shallow end. I simply took several sections out of the hose and plugged it into the skimmer in the shallow end of the pool and that made all the difference. It is amazing at how clear my pool water has been since I bought the X7. It has been a very hot summer and I have had no issues with algae. This is the easiest summer I have had with my pool in over 20 years.
Sounds like that might be the fix. Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

If the Baracuda is not covering the entire pool and gets stuck in one place.
Check for the following:
1. Use the flow gauge to verify the proper flow.
2. Ensure return fitting are directed down.Add a return diverter if necessary
3.Make sure the hose is not coiled or kinked. Lay in the sun to starighten it
4. Verify correct hose weight positioning :29 inches(1m) from the cleaner body
5.Confirm proper hose length.
6. Use the flow gauge as guide and reduce the flow to number 2 settings.
Its most likely caused due a wrong weight positioning.
Check the user manual on the following link for additional help.
