Assuming the PCB itself isn't damaged, it may work to replace that part. It looks like it is an inductor in the LVPS (low voltage power supply) but the value will be impossible to determine if the part is burned up. If you could find a working version of the same board you could possibly determine the part's value without removing it from the PCB, but that is not guaranteed. You could also take a chance that it is just a series choke meant to be act as a filter and you could try replacing it with a wire jumper. But I can't totally endorse that solution as it might also cause damage to another part of the board if it isn't a simple choke. A schematic would be nice but I don't know where you can get one.
Probably replacing the inverter was also required. A bad inverter is likely what caused that part to burn out in the first place. Good luck with it.
