You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.

The brushes are clean on the outside, but probably not inside of the little yellow contact on the end. Also the junk that collects on the brushes finds its way into the gear box. Mine kept shutting down w/ the "Please remove and clean Roomba's brushes" message. I finally gave up and took it apart. There was a surprising amount of junk in the gear box. After I got it apart, I cleaned it out and I even used a straight pin and a pair of tweezers to get all of the gunk out. Now it runs like new. I'm no mechanic, but I used to help my daddy fix things around the house. I posted my solution to the problem and it has worked for a couple of other people too.

Ours did the same thing. I cleaned the filter and canister thoroughly. It needed to be cleaned, but that didn't fix the problem. I removed the plate under the carpet brush bar (three quarter-turn screws) and removed all hair, lint and threads from the rollers and brush. THEN my husband found the real problem: a piece of flexible hose running from the head into the hose (on the left side when behind the vacuum) was completely clogged. The hose will detach from the head, and you can remove debris. Once that clog was removed, the hose easily re-attaches, and we had great suction once again.

SOURCE: lack of suction in hose
That popping sound is the bleed valve activating - it indicates that there is a blockage in the machine somewhere, probably in the wand if you're saying that there is no suction in the wand.
- Take the wand off the back of the machine - press the two gray buttons to separate it from the hose - hold the wand in the air and look through it - if you can't see the light coming through the other side there's a blockage in the wand - taka a long object like a meytal hanger and remove the blockage.
If that's not the problem, call the Dyson helpline for further troubleshooting, they know what they're doing.
