Why did my Kenmore refrigerator have a burning plastic smell and now the freezer isn't freezing?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model number 106.53559202. The burning smell happened yesterday. I unplugged the refrigerator and vacuumed out any dust that I could get to and then plugged it back in. The smell seemed to be dissipating and everything seemed to be working fine. Last night, I noticed that things were defrosting in the freezer. This morning, it is still that way. I can't tell if the refrigerator part is as cold as it should be or not. Things seem to still be running.
