    I've increased the bed to nozzle to the point it wouldn't adhere to the bed anymore.

    I "think" I found the source of all that noise....

    After adding a heavy viscosity oil (motor oil) to the rail, the noise suddenly was gone.

    I got this printer from MonoPrice about 1.5 years ago and it started making this noise early on but it's gotten MUCH worse.

    How long should a power supply last?

    Is there any "average" length of time in hours of run time that a 3D printer power supply is likely to last?

    Or is it totally unpredictable and totally random?
