Troubling burned wood smell in room

I house my Emblaser 2 in a spare bedroom with the air ducted outside through a convenient window. I always clean the cabinet and lens immediately after finishing a project, or after a few hours of burning, whichever occurs first. Lately, whenever I use it I smell a STRONG burned wood odour and when I first open the lid immediately after burning I see blue smoke wafting in the top left and right corners.  It quickly dissipates but the smell lingers.  I always use Darkly laser ply 3mm.

 

The smell is starting to permeate the furnishings in the room and I’m worried that I’m overlooking something as I’ve previously happily used it for a couple of years without this happening.

 

Any thoughts?
