Default CHE stinks!

Hi all,
I bought a CHE and a thermometer for my new hedgehog Daisy. I plugged it in and it is putting off a weird smell (chemical odor) Does that go away after a little while? Is it normal?

I'm pretty sure it's normal. Mine did the same thing when I first turned it on. After a day of having it on, the smell went away

Yes, it's normal and usually happens with any type of new heating appliance.
