How long is the max run times

What is the longest I should run my machine. One of the motor gears lost it’s teeth. Also is this why I only got about a month of service because I ran it too long?

I know of one user who ran for at least 7 hours with no issues, but I don’t run more than 1-2 hours at a time if I can help it.

This is a line of questioning out of curiosity, not intended to point the finger of accusation:
Was it one of the chain gears or one of the plastic internals of the motor?
Was it one of the beam motors or the Z axis motor that went?
How much does your sled weigh?
How high was your feed rate?
How rough was the surface you were cutting?
Does your vacuum stick the sled to the surface?
