Ok if there was a burning smell and now theres no power then its either the mains filter at the back has burnt out of the control board has.

What you need to check first is the control board.
Remove the outer door if its built in and then remove the plastic control panel. From there you will see the main control board. Check the wiring going to this is fine. Then if so remove the board and open it up and take the pcb out. Check for any signs of burning on there.

But if thats all ok then you need to pull the appliance out and look on the back at the bottom. You need to remove the plastic cover were the mains power cable goes into the back there. Then from there you will see the mains filter. Check for any signs of burning on there.

As if you had a burning smell then when you remove the panels i would image you will be able to see which part has failed from there.

Let me know how you get on with it.
