There are a few things you can check to narrow this down.

Verify you have 120vac to connector P-16 pins 2 and 4. If you don't have power, then the power isn't getting past the main power. If you do, go to P-1 on the motor control board (left one), you should have 120vac across it's 2 terminals. If not it's probably the main board.

Any remote troubleshooting beyond that would be difficult, but the main board is the most likely cause.
