Craftsman single cylinder oil free Compressor(919.165041) bogs down or slows way down and there is some light smoke. Thought it might be the electrical motor brushes.

If that's what it smells like, it may be the brushes. If you're lucky.

If the motor is open frame and you can see them (maybe removing shroud) you'll see sparking and maybe the smoke.

If not, open it up to see.

I see there are several suppliers of belts, so that may be the smoke source.
