Question 120v got 220v , can it be saved & used?

Hi,

I've ordered NutriBullet RX a 1700w 60hz blender from Amazon.
Apparently the input voltage of it is 120 and the power outlet where I live (outside the U.S) is 220.
At the first use it jumped the electric board and a spark came out the vent area.
When I opened it i discovered that the heat burnt the electric board side (right of the picture) but the motor area looks intact (left of the picture) and the motor and power button are working.

Amazon made a mistake and refunded me.
Now I am left with barley touched blender and I'm about to disppse. but before I'll do that I have to ask is there a way to replace the circut board? could it be generic?
If I'll buy a voltmeter I can see what is alive and whats not?
I'm kinda of newbie at this but I love to learn new things that could be useful.
Theoretically if I'll fix the blender I'll need a step-down converter for at least 1800 watts which is a big box (20 lbs or so).

Tnx for all who can advise and help
All the best
Roey

Welcome to the forums.

It can be difficult getting those kinds of parts from those companies. I haven't seen a replacement board available. I'll check further when I'm back in the shop.
