i think i'd look for a new repairman - did you check the oil? maybe he didn't put any oil back in it! or maybe the carb float stuck and the crankcase is full of gas. lift the hood and look for burnt wires or at the deck for a burnt belt - try to turn the engine over by hand [the round center with the perforations]. does it click when you try the key? if, not, check the fuse. without knowing the area that the smoke came from it's hard to single out a cause

Fortunately, the engine oil doesn't go through any rubber hoses, so they are mouse-proof. The oil probably leaked out through an engine seal. Oil on the engine surfaces would smoke when it gets hot. Check your oil level and top it up if necessary, before you run the engine again. The engine can run fine even with a slow oil leak; you just have to watch the oil level from time to time. The leak could be easy to fix - by tightening up a few bolts -- or expensive.
The gas runs through rubber hoses, though. If mice ate through that, I think you would have smelled the gasoline, and the engine wouldn't run for more than a few seconds. But if you see a severed hose, you should replace it. Take it off and bring it to a mower shop or auto supply shop, and buy something the same diameter. Inexpensive.
Hope this helped! If so, please rate my answer, thanks!
