Strong burning smell
« on: January 29, 2019, 10:41:11 am »
Hi, I bought two Almond+ units about 6 months apart, and they both get pretty warm, but the most recent one I bought smells like burning plastic all the time, it's been on for about a week now and it still smells like an overheated laptop.  I actually had to put it in another room because of the smell.  Has anyone else noticed this?   It seems to be working fine so far.

I have had my almond+ for 3.5 years and I have not noticed any burning smell.  My unit does have a lot of air space around it.

1-Is it wall mounted?
I ditched the wall mounting plate that came with the unit and modified the stand mount to be wall mounted. Gives about an inch of space behind the unit for airflow.
2-Do you have external USB drives attached? If so, try unhooking them. I found the unit ran too hot to the point of screen failure and general lock-up with a drive attached.
