If possible, throw a plastic blanket over the machine and burn a 40W light bulb or similar source of small heat under the blanket. It should only take a small temperature differential to keep the moisture outside.  :old:

Isn't plastic the worst thing as it traps the moisture in so you get a green house effect?

Without the heat source it would be bad but so long as the temperature under the sheet is more than that outside the sheet it should work. A lot of the "green house effect" comes from plant respiration along with watering the plants.
