The short answer is to get it serviced at a BERNINA dealer and repair center. To reset the service icon, the technician must go into the diagnostic mode in the machine and reset the service meter. This meter is based on number stitches the machine has performed, and really is a good indicator of how long you should go between services.
The BERNINA 153 is an outdated model. As such, any BERNINA 153 you find for sale will almost certainly be used. As a result, markup can vary drastically. This is the case with new machines as well. Every dealer prices their machines independently.
The back panel on the BERNINA 1080 is not removable. These machines are cast metal, and the main body does not disassemble. The top of the machine will come off, but what it sounds like is that your bobbin winder is engaged, and the clutch in the machine is preventing the machine from turning. Try disengaging the bobbin winder and see if your machine will run. If not, I would reccomend taking your machine to a certified BERNINA technician for repair.
Sometimes the touch screens can get accidentally re-calibrated incorrectly, and then will not work. It could also be a electrical defect, though this is rare with BERNINA products. I would recommend taking your machine back to the store that you bought it from to have it repaired. BERNINA machines come with a 5 year electronics warranty in the United States, so if it does happen to be an electrical defect, as long as your registered your warranty, this should be covered. If it is anything else, a BERNINA dealer should be able to re-calibrate or repair it fairly easily.
