New Radiator Smell

We just had a new radiator installed in our baby's room (in ana partment, very small room). The radiator is not painted, but does have primer on it (making it look a dull grey). The smell is HORRIBLE! How long will this last, and if we coat it with an oil-based paint, will that mask the smell of the primer (we understand it will smell of paint for a few days)? We have been told by the plumber who installed it that the smell will last for ther entire season, so we have just shut it off. Feeling very silly for paying for a new radiator we aren't using--any tips on how we can get rid of the smell ASAP.
