Depends on the model.
So check the color of the learn button (it typically on the motor unit, either on the back, or just beside one of the lights). On the 8500 I believe it is just under the front cover, on the left to where all the wires connect. The color of the learn button varies depending on the security features and frequency the unit uses, which also defines which accessories are compatible with it. I believe the 8500 learn button is Yellow, so should be fine.Works with Chamberlain, LiftMaster and Craftsman Garage Door Openers
This master keypad works with Chamberlain, LiftMaster or Craftsman 315 MHz or 390 MHz garage door openers manufactured after January 1, 1993 (any opener with safety sensors).

The other one has “one button close” which is a great festrr to have. Don’t have to punch the code in to close the door everytime you want to close the door.nmirza wrote: ↑ This one even cheaper for $38.99.

I have one. It takes a 9V battery, lasts maybe 2 years.frankw wrote: ↑ The 940EV-P2 the OP posted uses the CR123A battery which typically cost $5 to $10 a piece to replace.
Anyone know how long these last with average use on this pad?
UPDATE: Hmmmm, some confusion here. Amazon says it take a "1 CR123A batteries required. (included)". But all the Youtube batteries and pdf installation guides show 9V batteries.
Anyone who already has one these confirm either way?

That is the problem I had too. That is why I thought I need a replacement. What I fixed is that I open the box and insert several layers of paper underneath of the mother board then seal the box back. Now the keys feel more responsive when pressing. So far so good and will see how long it lasts.Emporium wrote: ↑ I've had one for a few years, and I find that after entering the code, I need to press the "Enter" key twice for it to work.
In the past, I though my keys were just not registering, so I would rekey in the whole code all the time and press enter again, until I realized that all I needed to do was press the "Enter" key a second time.
My in-laws have the same keypad, and it also seems to have the same flaw. Anyhow, once you know, it's not bad, but otherwise, you find yourself frustrated always entering the code+enter two or 3 times to get it to work.

Thnx for the comment. I'll take a look at that when I get a chance, but I don't think that is the problem on my unit. I don't have to press hard on the keys... And pressing harder and slowly does not make a difference. It is something strange.. When I am not too lazy, I may try to re-pair/re-learn the unit. I have a feeling it is something with the way the security codes roll.zq0888 wrote: ↑ That is the problem I had too. That is why I thought I need a replacement.
