Burned electrical smell from the freezer compartment
I would check the defrost thermostat usually a button type switch with 2 wires on it mounted to the freezer coil. Size depends on type ; 1 type is about quarter size, 1 is about dime size, and electronic sensor (not had one burn out but the board could smell like your description but I believe these are not in the freezer section).
I have had these cook out and smell up the freezer section before. And if they go out guess what it wont defrost either. If your fan motor goes out it might smell and wont cool all over but the frost should be minimal.
Also a bad defrost heater could make a smelly situation it is usually a
black rod or aluminum colored and the rubber ends can burn and make a
If you find its the heater, I would replace the defrost thermostat as
well. Its suppose to cut off the heater before it gets too hot.
If this helps you find your problem please rate me as high as possible if not please post back with more information as to what you did find. Thanks for using fix ya and good luck.
