I have 33 gal craftsman 1.6 vertical air compressor and the motor started smoking and actually caught fire. After the smoke had cleared I noticed a small melt hole at the back on the cover where smoke was coming out. Do I need a new motor?

Sounds to me likt you have a bad motor, or compressor. The compressor rings might be leaking by only holding 100 psi.

Craftsman 6hp 150psi 30gal won't keep running


It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.
