Question about Refrigerators
The first thing I would check is the light bulb and light bulb diffuser.
If the bulb was replaced with either the wrong shape or the wrong wattage (higher) the bulb could be touching the disfuser (shade) or some other part of the mount.. if the bulb is too high of a wattage the heat could damage the mount and shade..
I believe that is a 60 watt appliance bulb. (soft white)..
Also this model uses a "special" light bulb for the defrost cycle. If you unit is very frosty on the inside.. frost build up could cause the fan to stop running.. you should hear a fan running when you open the freeze side. If that bulb was burned out. you would have a frost problem regardless.
You didn't mention which side smells like this.. chances are it's the fresh food side.. again.. check the bulbs..
The last thing would be a circuit board in the door.. but doubtful.. go for the simple stuff first.
Even a wrapper or food item may have become lodged between the bulb and the shade/difuser.
