That smell is caused by the panel and/or feeder cable overheating due to excessive current draw. This is a FIRE HAZARD!!!!!!! The electrician did you no favor by putting in a new main breaker. The old one was tripping to protect the wiring from overload. You should have had a whole new panel installed that could handle the load.
