just a heads up.
My max air pump was no longer pumping this morning.
Pulled it apart and found the diaphragmss shaft was melting the motors eccentric thingamabob. (see picture)
So new pump is installed and I added additional high quality PTFE grease to the diaphragm's shaft. (Magnalube G is what I have)
Time will tell if this helps.

Thanks for the reminder, I just opened all 4 of mine and lubed the same point using superlube grease. https://www.amazon.com/Super-Lube-92003 ... B0081JE0OO

FWIW, I wish there was a ball bearing alternative, but cost $$$$

I have 4 of these pumps, only had recently installed one for permanent use as of March, but it ran for well over 100 hours straight without failure. I fully admit this is a weak point of the pump design (a plastic molded bushing) as the main crankshaft. I did open mine and lube them before installing, and again, since your failure, I just out of caution lubed the ones installed and printing at this very moment.
