I had something similar happen a long long time ago with a plastic light hood that was over the tank, my theory is that the plastic is fairly cheap and porous, and heating it up, cooling it down, heating it up again etc... causes the water that evaporates and builds up on the fixture to basically evaporate on the fixture over and over again, and it builds up the scent but it permeates into the plastic, cause no amount of washing made the plastic parts smell ok.

Just my thought.
