Pros and Cons


The product has many pros which definitely work in its favor. Following are a few of them:

  • The one piece rail design provides a friction reduced working system
  • The design of the product is such that lubrication can be ignored even in the extreme conditions.
  • The adjustable light time delay confirms the energy efficiency of the product.
  • The durability and the strength, provided by the motors make this device really special.
  • The security technology prevents the door from closing if something is obstructing. This definitely helps in enhancing the durability of the device.
  • The additional accessories empower the user with a lot of options.


Spotless beauty exists only in the books. Well this one is almost close to being termed as spotless. There are a few niggles which might have been treated in a different manner. The accessories like the Wireless Keyless entry system and the door gate monitor are beautiful additions to the product but those come with a cost. It would have been a perfect picture if the same would have been included in the kit. The rail with this model is square which may not fit with the other LiftMaster models. These are the only ones I could figure out underlining the fact that this device is almost perfect.  

What Customers Are Saying ?

Some methods to optimize satisfaction:

  • It is always advisable that the buttons of the remote are used with utmost care. This ensures greater durability and proper functioning of the sensors.
  • Even though lubricating the rail is least required, but sporadic oiling of the channel will definitely enhance the satisfaction level.
  • Given the light color of the model, maintenance of it is most important.


All said and done, this product definitely deserves kudos on the technical font as well as the looks. So my piece of advice to you would be, don’t wait but embrace LiftMaster 3240 for the ultimate satisfaction of using a garage door opener.
