I have an Intertherm "Softheat" baseboard heating unit. There is obviously a power source but I'm not sure what is inside the heating element (like a chemical or something). In any case, whenever i turn it on (ie raise the thermostat), there is a foul smell, like plastic burning. I have removed the cover of the unit and vacuumed it thorouhgly. there are no foreign objects visible near the heating unit.
Any idea what's wrong?
