After a year of owning the 8500, both 895 max remotes stopped working. Lights were bright, so I figured the batteries were good. Went though the programming steps on the wall switch = no good. Reset memory on wall switch = no good. Waited a day to cool down, then called LiftMaster support. Very helpful! They showed me a procedure for checking the batteries (8500 manual is wrong). There is a pin hole on the side of the remote. Stick a toothpick in there for a couple of seconds. Lights should now be on. Push a button. If the lights flash and go off, you need batteries. If the lights flash and stay on, your batteries are good. After I did this, one of my remotes starting working and the other needed batteries.

Had two garage door openers installed less than one year ago. The garage door openers work fine, but both remotes failed in less than one year. I can understand one failure, but two make me question the quality of the product.

The opener was working fine until around a month ago. It was erratic for around a month and stopped working all-together this week. My other remote works fine so I know it's not the main unit.

We got the Liftmaster garage door opener installed on June 2013. The two remote controler coming with the installation stop working occasionally after 8 month of normal usage, and totally out-of-work after 12 months.
I tried to re-program the remote control following the instruction but they never got learned by the opener.

I bought a new home with lift master openers and have 3 of these remotes. All 3 remotes have quit working within 9 months of living in our new home. I've changed the batteries in all 3 and spent hours trying to reprogram them. They will not stay in program mode during the process. DO NOT waste your money on these remotes. Highly disappointed with lift master.
