Of the 16 drawer bearings I had 13 bad so,… replaced all.

They are made by “igus” in Germany and you can buy parts from igus USA. Located in E. Providence, RI www.igus.com

The Zinc bearing supports are - WJQM-01-20 (CARR W/J200)

The plastic bearings are - J200QM-01-20 (J200 SQUARE LNR)

Gary- you quoted 13 bad of 16 total bearings.
These bearing liners look like what I've got.
W/4ea SmartBeds, I'm guessing you found two bearing assemblies per slide x 2 sides of a SB of the bearing assemblies x 4 beds = 16. Is this liner all you needed to replace? Or did you need to replace the carrier sockets that accept the liner inserts, or the square tracks?

Mike – Your count is correct, 16 total.

If the bearing liner wears out, the square track will rub against the carrier sockets. This carrier sockets that accepts the liner inserts is made of soft Zinc. The square track is steel and appears to be plated with something making the surface very hard.
So…the telltale sign, something is wrong is fine Zinc filings lying on the track and or basement floor. My square track showed no signs of damaged and the Zinc block had V worn into it. I only had to replace 1 Zinc carrier socket and found most of the plastic bearings severely worn so decided to replace all 16.

When I contacted IGUS I asked what lubrication they recommended. This is the email information I received from their engineer.

“We recommend: Waylube Oil - ISO grade 68 or 220, Lightweight Oils, Petroleum Based Grease, 3-In-1 Oils

What we don't recommend is: PTFE Sprays, WD-40, Fluorocarbons, Silicon Oils, Grease or Spray”

Gary- Thanks for posting about the wear signs, I see a minute amount of black metallic-ish dust on my slide rails. Front pillow blocks look good; I better check the back pillow blocks to see if I've got wear problems developing. The dust might be wear on the plastic slide inserts, or it could be zinc.
