New burn off smell

New burn off smell
That is what I got with the nap I just took, woke up to the smell, through the tube into my mask like when you have something new and I’ve away heard the term Burn off of a new item, it wasn’t that bad but bad enough it woke me up.

Was your humidifier running with heat on and no water in the tub?

Is the power supply placed close to the air intake?

That's the funny thing with SA therapy. Even though we all use similar equipment, chase the same desired outcomes, and experience varying degrees of success, we seem to feel stymied when it doesn't all all together. 

I'm closing in on one year, things are going good, no problems and/or issues, and I don't feel any different or better.  Dont-know
