I just would not recommend this vacuum for older individuals or those suffering from arthritis. The reason why it is heavier is because it is mostly metal, whereas the Dyson is part metal, part plastic (well, I think the newer versions are more plastic than anything).

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue
.This is where a vacuum that won’t run without a bag would have been nice. (Aerus for one)
.Or you get a downloadable G6 manual free at the below link. Most of the G series are very similar to this, and even the newer ones are close enough to use it.
.Detach the hose, turn vacuum on. If it runs, place palm of hand against inport hole. If it shuts off the problem is with either the control valve setting or the control valve assembly itself.
.For cvs, turn dial on top of vacuum all the way to the largest dot, and try above test again. If that doesn’t work, then it’s the CVA. It needs to be cleaned or replaced, which is an in shop job. Fro repair, take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store. I recommend a full clean and service to remove any dust/dirt from the motor, fan assembly, and other internal parts.
.Another problem, which relates to the dial setting, is that fine dust will quickly clog the pores of the bag, resulting in the machine “thinking” the bag is full. Turning the dial to the proper setting helps get the bag fuller. The middle setting is the normal setting, and is for areas without fine dust and sand.
.Here’s an easy to understand and follow video review on how to attach the carpet shampooer to the Kirby Generation 6 (G6). The model that’s being used in this video is a little newer model, the Sentria, but the procedure to attach the carpet cleaning attachment is the same exact repair on the Sentria as it is on your Kirby G6 vacuum.
.I hope this helps!
