hello, it first must be determined if it were steam or smoke....an empty pump can steam water...burned windings will smoke...was it a burning smell or more just hot?
Could be a plugged strainer starved the pump
Pump lost a seal and water hit the windings
Pump shaft/impeller bad bearing..
No matter which the unit must be taken apart and the motor bench tested without pump
