    Hi, I have posted on this problem before and have spoken to truma who say that this type of smell is not uncomman when using the hot water setting, they didnt really offer any solution say that it could be debris in the ducting close to the boiler.
    Has anyone found a solution to this, it doesnt affect the opperation but its not a pleasent smell.

    I would describe it as a hot plastic smell rather than 'burning', but it is common to the product. We get used to it.

    Is it fitted under a drawer that things can fall out of? Our Truma blown air heater is.
