Question about LitterMaid Lm980 Mega Self-cleaning Litter Box 14" Wide X 17" Long

1 Answer

XNon functioning littermaid LM980 mega

Found LitterMaid light blinking. Too much material to remove. Cleared material. Now rake assembly will not work automaticly. It will not go back to it's docking area. It goes back to very back of box but will not lift up off the litter. Sometimes I can jiggle the assembly and it will work but when it encounters normal amount of litter it lacks power and will reverse itself.

Common problem with Littermaid boxes. Try a better brand of clumping litter. Try using a little less litter. And you can help the rake lift up by slowly pushing on it with something, giving it more strength. I had this problem and found that if I "helped" the rake return to its normal position, it would work most of the time, and then need "help" every once in awhile. I actually gave up on littermaid type boxes...they just don't work very well.

When rake cleans makes loud noise


Open the left side of the box and you'll see a white plastic part covering the hole. Get scissors and cut it out. The metal piece moving the rake was dragging on the plastic and so I cut it out of mine and now it's back to normal !

Littermaid LM980 Turns itself off


The other appliance, e.g., a motor driven one, may be causing the box to malfunction. You may have to use a dedicated connection to get proper results.

Litterbox is not working


Usually when this happens it is because there is something obstructing the rake making it impossible for the rake to go back to its original position. If there is nothing in the way, no clumps or bunched up litter, then the rake is not functioning the way it should. Sometimes gently pushing the rake back into its normal position can work. I had a LitterMaid that had this problem and every now and again I would have to "help" the rake with a push. If this doesn't work, then you have a defective litterbox that won't work not matter what... return it for another unit. Good Luck.

I would really like my cat to have a clean litter box throughout the day. Do self-cleaning litter boxes really work? If so, this could be a worthwhile investment.


I would recommend you check out the LitterMaid litter box. It has two sensors on either side of the box that detect when a cat uses it. After 10 minutes, a rake automatically comes and scoops clumps of solid and liquid waste into a disposable container at the end of the litter box. Keep in mind that this does not eliminate you cleaning the box.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Replaced ice maker in kenmore elite last year. stopped working again.replaced ice control sensor boards,still nothing.replaced module,poured some water in tray,freezes,rake starts down,hits ice then does...


the rakes can only move the ice if the tray has been heated .. there is a heater mounted on the tray that may be bad or not getting power . here is the sequence that should happen

the water solonoid operates to fill the tray (you should hear it click when this happens) .. then the tray is left alone until the cubes have frozen .. then the heater comes on to free the cubes from their mold then the rake operates to scoop out the ice .. the rake cant move the cubes unless they have first been freed by the heater .. it sounds like you have power (rakes moved) but its not clear if the water fill function is working .. even if it wasnt, if you filled the trays then it should still work but you would have to wait for the complete sequence .. you can feel the heater get hot at the right time if its working (just before the rakes move) .. its a bent tube structure mounted on the ice forming pickets .. be careful it can get pretty hot .. i cant tell but if several things are not working like it doesnt fill with water and the heater doesnt come on ever then that sounds like a connector not fully connected or damaged .. or perhaps a bad (new) module (broken solder connection or otherwise damaged) .. .. you can check the heater with an ohmmeter . it should read low resistance between hot terminals .. and open from ground to either terminal ..(power off and disconnected of course) .. make sure the heater is indeed plugged in ..

Littermaid plus will not rake


Does it rake halfway and then go back and try again? I have had that same problem and have found it's because of too much litter ni the box. The random time I have noticed. As long as it's raking, I'm happy.
