I was looking the warranty information on Internet for the Noma Programmable Thermostat that I purchased from CT back in Oct 2008. Happen to find that the model was actually been recalled from Dec last year. I'd like to share this information to whom might purchase these affected units at that time. These are the models affected by this recall, UPM models: HTM611A and HTM621, Noma models: HTM611A (52-2544-0) and HTM621 (52-2545-8). Affected units were manufactured in 2008 and has serial number starting with “08”. Units with serial number not starting with “08” are not affected.
