I just recently received the Ender 5 Pro and it seems like the bearings are either bad or unlubricated. The video included is way louder than when the printer is actually printing, regardless I just want to make sure my printer will stay in pristine condition for as long as possible. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I lubricated ours with 3-in-1 oil and it only helped a tiny bit.

It's still to loud to use when somebody needs to make a phone/zoom call  :-\

 

 

edit:

Figured it out.  It was the brass bushings riding on the threaded rod.  Tried several types & weights of oils, nothing helped until we switched to synthetic grease with PTFE (teflon) in it.
