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

Motor run for ever but tank does not fill up with air.

Sounds like you broke a valve. You could take apart the head assembly and check the reed valves but I would check to see if parts are available before you do this. Craftsman compressors are not the easiest compressors to find parts for.

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.
