Probably a wireburning somewhere or maybe plastic touching a hot light bulb. Freon is odorless.

Refrigerant oil leak perhaps. You don’t want to breath that stuff in your home. Need to call licensed technician for inspection or repair. Could also be an old item in your fridge or freezer. Check that in detail before you call the service man.

Frgidaire Side By Side Burning Smell


Most burning smells in refrigerators comes from the compressor overheating due to the overload relay going out . Unplug the fridge before the compressor burns out and take the model number to appliance store for a new relay. The relay is located in the back of the fridge inside the lower back panel.

LEW0050PQ dryer works but smells like burning


In many machines, those elements, which are manufactured by "robots", are very cheaply made.
Rather than risk a fire, perhaps an investment of 20 - 30 dollars for a new element might be a good idea.
If you decide to do this, take a second look around for what specifically is getting so hot it is melting.
Likely the loose wire inside the element is doing that problem.
I should guess it is out of it's place and is melting an adjacent wire outside the heating element.
God bless your efforts.

If it smells like plastic burning. Stop using it immediately. As there could be an electrical short or overheating of the unit. If doesn't smell like plastic burning, you'll need to be more descriptive of what the odor smells like.
