Space Heater Improvement

I have an electric space heater that makes a mild burning smell and the fan makes too much noise, any ideas on how an adventurous engineering student might be able to make the unit better than out of the box?

I have this
unit specifically. There doesn't appear to be anything solid inside (as seen through the grill) that might be causing a burning smell, and I have no idea where the fan even is. I have a few assorted enthusiast grade computer fans that might be quieter, but i have no idea what to expect once I crack the case.
