Re: odor in refrigerator
Freon is not very toxic. Oil is not too bad either. Smoke is not good. Sorry, unless there was a spill, none of these indicate a long life ahead (most likly hours). The only possible OK cause is where the defrost cycle has just occured, and some residue was heated. The defrost heater gets as hot as a toaster.

the odors are normal for some new refrigerators,its due to the type of plastic used,let it cool and put coffee inside both compartments or baking soda as these 2 items will remove odors,after the odors gone continue to keep a box of baking soda in each compartment to control all food or plastic odors,this should help remove your odor problem
This can be a result of chemical reaction in internal parts. If you notice it is faint the keep orange peels to get off the smell. It could be the freon. It is kind of like your a.c. in your car. It is the gas that makes it cold. You might have a leak. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
You have a freon leak. With this only being 5 years old, iot's probably worth repairing, unless you are just able to buy a new one. I would have a local tech come out and check it before tossing it. I hope this answers your question and gives you some resolution. I hope to work with you again, so please record our name, email and phone number for future needs. Have a great evening!
