Why is the zodiac hanging upside down

air trapped in hose or "Hose memory too high" plastic has a memory from its mfg that needs to be relaxed or will cause cleaners to flip over and stay high on walls leave hose straigh out and roll over several times to relax the hose, helps if it's a warm day .

My zodiac cleaner keeps climbing the wall and then sucks air

You need to adjust the suction down on the cleaner. This type of cleaner only needs about 10lbs of vacuum pressure

When our above ground automatic pool cleaner is contected(zodiac manta) our pool pump keeps filling with water and the vaccum does not move. The hoses are fine and we have changed the diaphram just...

I think you meant that the pump keeps filling with air. You may have an air leak on the suction side of the pump. If you turn the pump off, you should not see any water leaking out of anywhere, if you see any water drip near the suction side of the pump, you should consider that an air leak and repair it.

The problem you're having seems to be an air leak. when you connect the manual vacuum or if the system is running normally, there is not nearly as much suction that is created as when the zodiac is plugged in. The air is forcefully pulled into the system when increased suction is created.

Try replacing the lid o-ring and investigate any possible places on the suction side of the pump that could be a potential leak.

Hope this helps.

My Barracuda G4 keeps turning over after a few minutes. I've adjusted the weight position, but it keeps happening.

You can check your water flow and make sure that it is not too high, but if your pool cleaners flipping over, there is probably a rather sever issue. Zodiac recommends that you contact your local warranty location if the cleaner is still under warranty.

I take hose to my pool suction. I then have my psi on pool pump going at 12 psi. the cleaner works. then it loses power/psi. I wait to see if it will still work . Then it stops working and does not...

It sounds like your loosing prime. I would chesk all the hoses for leaks. When you start the pump keep the hoses under water and see if the system works. If it does then pull the hoses one by on up out of the water bending them as you go to see if you can hear them sucking air. Good luck.

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.

My Baracuda pool cleaner doesn't work at all

While the cleaner is in the water, see if there is suction on the bottom of it. If not than you probably have a bad hose.(Broken) If there is a lot of suction then the diaphragm probably is either worn out or has a rip or tear in it.

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.
