How to eliminate weird plastic smell from ResMed ASV?

How to eliminate weird plastic smell from ResMed ASV?
Hello everyone,
I have a question about eliminating a persistent sour+plastic smell coming from my ResMed AirCurve 10 ASV. I cleaned the pipe and mask yesterday, and just to confirm that the smell wasn’t coming from either of those. The smell is coming directly from the inside of the hole that comes from the ASV into the water container. Let me show you what I mean in this link (2nd Picture), posting pictures here often doesn’t work:

That is definitely the main blower unit. If you bought the machine used, the vendor may exchange it. If not then the question is, how many hours on on the machine. We can't tell from your description what it might have been exposed to, but it seems unlikely it was smoke since you are describing a plastic smell. I could be deterioration from ozone gas cleaning or a chemical smoke that was in its prior environment.

I'd call the supplier or vendor and request an exchange.
