Re: HELP!!
1st of all:  
Never install a ground-switch connected/wired the old way with a cap, just use a 3 pong cord and connect nothing to the ground-switch or use that switch/hole for other duties if wanted.  
Or are you talking about the standby-switch?  
In that case I would double check all (blue) e-caps for polarity. If the smoke was coming from the caps chances are big one was reverse poled... install a new one/some new ones.  
Hope this helps, be carefull but keep on building & rocking!
