As the title says, my KitchenAid stove knob wouldn't easily turn, it tripped the breaker, and then started smoking. What should I do? Can I fix it?

I would say that No you probably will not be able to fix that switch. Replace with a new switch and make sure it doesn't ground out again and that should solve your problem.
Good Luck
