Strong Electronic Smell

Roku Premiere device was set up recently. Shortly after set up and when used, it emits this strong electronic smell similar to the smell you get walking into Best Buy. This has been going on 3 days. Will this smell go away after a week or two, or is this abnormal? It feels pretty warm to the touch but has not gotten any overheated red light warnings or anything.

Re: Strong Electronic Smell

Roku units tend to run warm to the touch, but they do have an internal temperature sensor that will give warning on screen if the unit gets too hot.
