Verify nothing is stuck inside the vacuum. Try adjusting your intake valves to reduce flow from your skimmer(s) and increase flow from the vacuum. Also, how old is the diaphragm inside the vacuum? Inspect it for rips and tears. Also, check the flex hose for rips and tears as well.

SOURCE: Our Zodiac Barracuda pool cleaner isn't working

you may have a bad diaphragm inside the unit. Unthread the nut between the "wagon wheel" and the lower unit and remove it, push down on the white tube until it comes out of the bottom of the barracuda. Inspect the rubber diaphragm for debris and deformations. If the diaphragm has a large gap inside, it won't work properly. It needs to have only a small uniform gap, they can sometimes even look completely closed when they are new. Replacing the diaphragm will most likely make the unit run like new again.

either some debris is caught in the diaphragm or it's deformed enough to render it inoperable. Unthread the nut just above the handle and pull it apart, then push the white tube downward until it comes out of the bottom of the unit. Inspect the diaphragm to see it there is any debris in it or if it is deformed. Usually the diaphragm has a uniform opening, if the gap is wide, it will not function. The most common problem is that the diaphragm needs replaced. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: barracuda not bouncing or moving to clean pool

Check suction at cleaner. Could be broken hose, bad or dirty impeller, incorrectly set valves, dirty filter, clogged line and probably a bunch more things.

Pulse changes speed on baracuda


as there are no real moving parts on the barracuda, the pulse is driven by the efficiency of the pump. if there is air in the system, the pulse will slow down. as the air is expelled and the pump becomes more efficient at moving water, the pulse will increase.

Barracuda has plenty of suction but hardly moves around the pool, goes very slowly


You likely just need a new pad on the head. When they ware down they allow the head to get closer to the surface that it's cleaning, but the additional suction makes it difficult for the head to move.

I hope this helps you!

Why does my pool cleaner turn upside down? how can i fix it?


Try adjusting your hose weights to see if that corrects the problem. When your cleaner is resting on the bottom of the pool, it should be at 45 degree angle. If it is tilting back toward the hose, try moving the weights closer to the cleaner. If it is tilting forward, try moving the weights away from the cleaner. You might also need to add more hose weight. If the pool cleaner does not have enough weight to hold it down, it will float. You will also want to make sure that you have adequate water flow through the cleaner.

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.

My barracuda stays in the deep end and will not move to the shallow end of the pool


You probably just need to redirect the returns in the pool. If they are angled right (or wrong) they will get a current moving in the pool and cause the cleaner to go to one spot and keep it in just that area of the pool.

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.

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.

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.
