Question about Zodiac Baracuda G4 Automatic Pool Cleaner Ne221

1 Answer

The pool cleaner will work for a couple of minutes then stop. If I pick it up and nearly lift out of the water it will generally start again for a little while. I have just replaced diaphram and can't see any holes in the hoses.

You need to check your water flow to ensure that your pool cleaner is getting adequate power. A dirty pool filter, clogged baskets and improperly set valves are usually the main cause of low flow. If your flow is too high, confirm that the valves controlling these lines are properly set. Lower the setting on the Flowkeeper valve and slightly open the main drain as a last option if flow is still excessive.

My Zodiac pacer pool cleaner moves in small intervals and then stop, once I pull on the pype it moves and stops again after say 30 seconds?


these units work directly through the flow of water through the pump. they will not work properly if there is too much or too little. the problem is that as the unit picks up debris in the pool, the water flow will change. also, little holes in the hose will affect how it works. as well, if the chemical balance in the pool is wrong, the diaphragm will become rigid and affect performance. if your liner has water underneath it, the vac will pull and seal to the liner causing it to stop. this is a very common problem

My bug worked great last season but this year I will find it stopped in the pool not moving, I will pick it up and push on the feet to get them running again and it will stop again, what do I need to


It may be that you have one of several possible problems that could be the reason for the symptom you are experiencing:
  • Low water flow thru circulation system
    • Dirty Filter
    • Baskets filled with debris
    • Clogged Pump Impeller
    • Clogged suction line between suction port and actual cleaner
    • Clogged/plugged cleaning unit itself
  • Worn gear assembly within the LadyBug

The surging water shouldn't have affected anything. Check that your foot pad still has deep slots which allow water to drive the unit. As the pad starts to smooth out it won't run as well.
Also check the hose with the pump on. Going hand over hand along the length, lift the hose out of the water and listen for a sucking sound. That would be air going into the hose. Submerged, water is getting in robbing flow from the head.

My g3 is not working, took it to pool store and they replaced diaphram, but still not hopping or moving, suction is good but now movement.


There are a couple things to check with these pool cleaners when they stop moving. Use Pool Pulse to insure proper flow through the cleaner. Clean baskets and filter to ensure that you are not clogged. Check hose sections for leaks by lifting each section above water.

When I turn on the pool, the pacer works for about 5 minutes then just gets stuck on the wall. If I turn off the pool and reset, it starts again then stops. How can I decrease the suction or adjust the...


You need to use the Pool Pulse feature to control the flow of water through the cleaner. Here is a brief overview, but if you need more details, consult page 6 of the users manual for this pool cleaner (below if you don't have it).
"Remove the cleaner head. Attach the Pool Pulse to the end of the hose and keep it under water. Turn on the filtration system.
• For pools with one skimmer, flow is automatically regulated by the Flowkeeper Valve. Insure the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse is in the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with two or more skimmers, leave the selected skimmer open and slowly close the other skimmer(s) until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).
• For pools with a wall vacuum fitting, leave the wall vacuum fitting fully open and slowly close the skimmer valve until the blue indicator of the Pool Pulse moves into the ideal range (when viewed from the side).

Keeping the hose under water, remove the Pool Pulse. Submerge the cleaner head, and when the bubbles stop coming from the extension pipe, attach the hose end. Your installation is now complete."

MY POOL CLEANER WILL RUN FOR A FEW MINUTES, THEN STOP. SO METIMES IF I SHAKE THE HOSE IT WILL START AGAIN. ANY ANSWERS?


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.

Cleaner is floating on top of pool


First, remove all of the air from the cleaner head and stop all air from entering the pool2_bing.gif through the return lines. Also, if the head and hose are covered with bubbles, give the hose a good tug. This will release the air bubbles and allow the pool cleaner to settle son the bottom of the pool. Also, the cleaner head may actually be being lifted off the bottom of the pool by the hose or the pressure in the return lines. Make sure that the hose stays untangled and the pressure from the return lines is not too low (not enought pressure to power) or too high (too much pressure that cause the unit to lift off the floor).

The cleaner will run 1-2 minutes then stop. I can shake the hose & it will start again for another minute or 2. Everything looks to be in place and working. Any suggestions would be appreicated.


First, remove and check diaphragm for cuts or rips. If ok, check hoses for leaks. You can do this by holding hoses one at a time above water level while cleaner is running(or supposed to be running). If there is a leak you will hear it sucking in air. Make sure filter is ok. If a cartridge filter, remove cartridge and run without it in. If cleaner works ok without cartridge either acid wash or replace cartridge.

Aquabot Turbo T won't climb


1.`. Replace your old, water logged floats. They will dry out when the unit is out of the pool, and the unit will work fine until they water log again, which may takes as few as 10 minutes in the pool. 2. Stop using all those words *********** didn't teach you and probably didn't even know...This is a common problem. http://www.i-love-my-aquabot-automatic-pool-cleaner.com/ gives some really good insight, too!
