My Printer Squeaks During Printing

Squeaking noises during printing probably mean the threaded Z-axis rod and the X-axis idler pulley on your MakerBot Replicator 2 need to be lubricated with PTFE-based grease. These parts should be lubricated approximately once for every 50 hours of print time. Everything else on your MakerBot Replicator 2 is self-lubricating.  

Where do I find PTFE-based grease?How do I lubricate the threaded Z-axis rod?
