I'm wondering now if I should just change the water inlet assy to see if that coil/solenoid is the culprit for smoking the float sw. and tripping the breaker.

   Sounds to me like your fill solenoid may be shorted.  Why not do the same thing again only this time disconnect the two wires going to the fill solenoid.

    Or you could ohm it out if you have a meter.

Of course wait for the Samurai's blessing before attempting this.
