Hi all,

Finally! After many years of looking at the LM GS3 I decided to buy the machine and what a machine, this really rocks :-)

I had the machine for 4 weeks now and I have a little issue that I hope someone can help me with. There is a "new" smell coming from the machine, quite intense and when coming down into the kitchen in the mornings when the machine is powered up you can easily tell that the machine is on. Even the youth of the house are commenting on the smell.

I would expect all machines to have a little bit of "new" smell but is this to expect with this machine? Will it go away and what's the timeframe to expect?
