I had a customer contact me about a smell that was originating from his new Inada Sogno. He described it as a “strong plastic/chemical smell” that was not dissipating right away. He contacted Inada and was told that the oils and other lubricants of the new motor were the source of the odor and that it would go away within 2 weeks to 2 months.
The interesting thing is that I have been selling Sogno’s for almost 5 years and have never heard of this before. I suspect that if it happens with Sognos, other models of other companies may have this issue as well. I would love to hear from any of you if you have experienced this phenomenon before with your massage chair, be it a Sogno or any other model for that matter.

Here is the question from my customer:
