Aircurve 10 Vauto Hours
#1
Aircurve 10 Vauto Hours
I've had my Aircurve 10 Vauto for about 4 years now and have recently racked up 10,000 hours on the machine. I got it from Supplier #2, gently used, with a couple of hundred hours run time. It's still functioning perfectly but I am wondering how much life it will have left in it and when I should look at replacing it. If it suddenly dies I do have an S9 Vauto BiLevel which I use as a travel machine (not that I've done much of that lately).

I read somewhere that I should get about 7 years of regular use out of this machine but don't know how accurate this information is.

My numbers may be a bit on the conservative side but I've heard about 5 years and 15-20k hours then look to get it replaced. Machines can last longer but could die sooner as well.

I'm between 18-19K hours and will start the process for replacement. I have a backup I got on Craigslist for $150 with 4363 hours with if it fails. I use the backup at our summer cottage, so it had less hours when purchased. Being without is not an option.
