Only if the refrigerant is leaking and even then it would proabably take all the contents to pose a short term hazard.
If it leaks slowly, not enough concentration to cause any problem at all.
You'd know in either case,the fridge wouldn't work properly.

The only significant hazard is noise affecting your sleep.
