Craftsman 30 gallon 6 h.p. 919.167310 went up in smoke under cover

Had to leave unplugged over night other wise it would kick on during the night. Went out one morning and plugged it in and started to run then quite and smoke come rolling out from the covers. What do you think it would be. I took the outside covers off and end of motor cover and cover on top of motor and don't see visible signs of anything that would of burnt. I would appreciate any good advice. Thanks

Well, does it still make noise if you turn it on (briefly)?

If not, probably motor.

If noise, then maybe ring on pump.

What color was the smoke?
