I popped off the face and held down the switch. The maker began rotating and dropped the ice I beleave it was going to fill when I saw what I thought was a light under the dial at about 2 o'clock position followed by smoke from this location. I let off the switch. Think it needs to be disabled.

When that happens on that particular unit you just need to replace the ice maker assembly it comes complete. You can order that part from Midwest parts out of Chicago.
