New Xbox 360 Slim Giving Off Bad Odor

I just bought a new 360 slim and it's giving off a very bad plasticy odor when it's on. Is this normal? If so, how long does it take to go away?

I don't think I had that issue with either of my slims but I would say it should stop soon, if it doesn't make sure you removed all plastic covers from the disk tray and area's like that. If it continue's maybe try calling support just to make sure nothing is wrong.

It's because it has just came fresh from the warehouse, once you've had it on a few hours, it will release from the console.

This is normal.  Depending on how good your senses are, it could last for a week or so after purchase.  Just to break it.  Make sure the console is well ventilated, not on any rugs and can breath.

As someone already mentioned, This is normal. Mine took a while till the fresh smell of plastic went away. Now it should not get real hot or smoke or anything like that, But do make sure to keep well ventialated.
