Well this does not sound good and must be looked at to find out what is shorted and causing it to glow and smoke. it could be serious but it could be so not so serious but you won't know till we find out what is burning up and why. Very hard from cyber space unless you take picture and upload would be a lot easier to know whats wrong from there
