Hi mpsmins,

I believe your ignition switch is bad and not returning to the ON position after starting. This would cause the starter to continue running after the engine is started resulting in the knocking noise and the starter smoking. Hopefully you have not damaged the starter motor.

The ignition switch has to be replaced to rectify. It would also result in the fans working after it is turned off.
