2nd 3880 fails, same reason - Using Photo Rag

I use only Canon Photo Rag on my Epson 3880. I do about 75 prints per month but in batches of about 150.

My first (new) 3880 died with service error 150C at the six month mark. The replacement just died with the same error code after two months use.

I print 13 x 19 borderless with a platen gap of "5", "wider". I feed from the top; have to do it one sheet at a time or it will occasionally double-feed.

Anyone else use this combination and workflow?
Have you had a 150C (platen gap) error?
Is it safe to vacuum the innards of this printer?
