here is a link to the Technical Support at Baracuda. this should be able to solve your problems. initially sounds like maybe too much suction.

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.

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.

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.
