Good morning. It’s 2:42am and my 888LM control unit for the garage door is beeping and flashing red and yellow lights. Needless to say I can’t make it stop and I cannot sleep. I need immediate help

This is a known issue with the 888LM. LiftMaster refuses to acknowledge the problem publicly or state which hardware revision (if any) fixes it. In the worst case, it'll leave the garage door open with nobody home.

My fix was to replace the 888LM and the problem went away.  I then repaired my 888LM door opener by replacing the two capacitors in the remote and tested. I have now repaired a couple of these remotes and all are still working. I don't recommend repairing them if you don't know how to use a soldering iron.

I threw all of it out and installed Nexx Garage door controllers. Work like a champ.

The 888LM is the access point for other devices. Like the out door keypad and the LiftMaster® Internet Gateway which does exactly what the Nexx Garage door controller does. I'm hoping that you installed a Door bell type button in the garage incase of an emergency.

Yep, kept the existing setup and just tapped in. It’s a cheaper and simpler setup but gives me the versatility of using geofencing and rules to automatically open and close my doors. The Chamberlin setup was a fail from the start. Can’t have the control pads too close to each other, weren’t compatible with door openers. (Really? Just open and close, a dumb button does that job!) and more hardware. And on top of that, I couldn’t return the darn equipment.

We went on a wek long trip and ca,e home to find it open. It randomly opens andfind it inthemiddle of the night. The neighbor loves the beeping. Hes a decent guy and even tried shut the door a few times. No luck
