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.

SOURCE: Central vacuum not sucking
Usually when there is no suction, and the main unit is running, then either the hose or somewhere in the piping there is a clog. If you move the hose to another location, is there suction? If not then the hose is clogged. You can unhook the pipe at the unit, flip the switch to manual, if it comes on and there is suction there, then there is a clog in the piping, If in the piping, tear up small strips of paper and mark them by number and insert one in each inlet, run the unit on manual to suck them up, and which ever numbered strip isn't there in the bucket, then that is the inlet that is clogged.

Just had the same problem. Turns out to be the belt that spins the brushes...
Check to see if the brushes are spinning, if not, undo the four screws on the plate over the brushes and the belt is easy to get at. Replacement should be available in any spares store.

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.
