How the LM680C works
The sensor must be blocked for at least 10 seconds while your cat uses the litter box. As your cat exits the box, the sensor becomes unblocked and initiates the cleaning cycle.
Once initiated, the cleaning cycle will officially begin after 10 minutes to ensure your cat is no longer in the box. *If your cat re-enters the box during the wait time, the sensor will trigger again and the 10 minutes will start over.
During the cleaning cycle, the automatic rake will move forward and back to scoop waste clumps into the waste receptacle, which will then keep waste and odors contained until it is time to replace it.
An optional sleep timer can also be set to deactivate your litter box overnight.
Begin by preparing the waste receptacle. Place the receptacle underneath the compartment cover in the space provided. Make sure that the front edge is under the 5 tabs on the front edge of the litter tray.
Attach the waste receptacle lid by inserting the PUSH tabs into the round holes on the compartment cover. Secure the lid by slipping the edges under the tabs on the waste receptacle compartment cover.

Top customer reviews
There are TWO lines of Littermaids - the ELITE and CLASSIC. I prefer the Classic, since the Elite one I had broke - the rake is metal. If you have more than one cat, buy the Mega size. If you more than two cats, I suggest you buy two boxes or be prepared to empty the waste bins more often. Elites can have accessories like cover tents if you are into that thing.
The originals were made in the USA and wore like iron. (Of course this is what put the original company into bankruptcy since there were no resales!) The new company that bought the bankrupt company now builds overseas, and they are not as durable. But following some simple rules will help them last 4-5 years.
1. LITTER Buy a good hard and FAST clumping litter. The cheapest and best I've found is Tidy Cats Odor Erasers Scoop For Multiple Cats 24/7 Performance Cat Litter. It has to clump FAST so that they are ready to go by the time the timer tells the rake to start scooping. You want HARD clumping so they don't shatter as they are coaxed to the waste bin.
-Warning some "clumping" litters are too sticky and adhere to the rake and box bottom and can jam the rake and brake it. I had BAD experiences with Arm and Hammer in this regard which broke the Elite rake.
2, MONITOR THE FILL LINE Don't overfill or this makes the sensors unable to complete a cycle and it will back up and forth. This puts wear and tear on the motor. Likewise don't let the level get too low or there isn't a critical mass of litter to clump. If your cats are 'mound builders', occasionally you may have to give the box a simple shake to even out the level after it's done scooping.
3. WASTE BINS Here's a trick to save on buying waste bins so often: line them with disposable grocery bags. But first, take a second bin and cut off the top rim about a half inch all round. That way you are making the whole bin area stronger to support the plastic bag. There is a company called LazerArt (http://www.lazrartstore.com/BAG-it.html ) that makes a permanent replacement for the lids (which I found a PITA, to keep replacing anyway) and a frame that holds the bag open and in place, I found these to be worth it. Clean up was really quick: Flip the lid, pull up the handles on the bag. pull up, tie ends, and dispose. Eventually you'll get into the rhythm of it and it goes fast.
4. SMELL The above litter is the best I've found to lock out the urine smell without having to put up with the yucky perfumy ones. My cats are really good about covering up their solid business, too. If you have a lazy cat who doesn't you will smell it until it gets scooped. I have special needs kitties and so feed them NO GRAIN food - wet and dry. While it costs more, I have noticed that after two weeks their 'depositing' smelled very little. I also have a Lysol automatic air freshener ( set for the half hour cycle) in the room on a top shelf, just in case a guest goes to the loo where the box is.
I think I have covered all my tricks to making your Littermaid the scooping wonder you want it to be. If I remember anything else, I'll post it here.
EDITED: the cat finally got used to the box and it works great with a high quality litter. I don't buy the refill boxes, I just line mine with a used plastic grocery bag that I lift out and throw away. You have to tuck the edges of the bag around the box but it will save you a ton of money.
Afraid the answer is "not".
I have an old one, might even qualify as vintage, that still works beautifully after 8-10 years.
The new version is much more noisy. It doesn't scoop as well and leaves litter stuck to the bottom that I have to break up with a litter scoop one or two times a day.
The part that flips up so the waste can drop into the receptacle is too wide and frequently sticks rather than dropping back down, and the plastic lid won't stay attached to the flap like the old one does. Litter frequently drops between the bottom receptacle and the edge of the box so that I have to lift the box and clean all the dirty litter out from underneath.
Basically, the only good thing about it is the square carbon packs that you can stick on the lid to hold down odors in the receptacle part.
In the end, I think a regular scoopable box is about the same amount of work and a lot less messy and noisy
Turns out, it's too shallow for her to feel comfortable digging and the scooping noise is so loud that she's afraid to go near it, so now she's taken to peeing on the rug (something she never did before we got this box).
If you cat isn't a snob, I'm sure it's great. My cat is a bit of a snob plus I have a small house, so the ridiculously loud noise it makes while scooping detracts from how great it is that it does the scooping.
