If the winder is working without thread as it should you can rule out an electronic and motor issue. At this point it won't hurt to remove the two screws on top and lift your top cover off. Take a close look at your winder and see if there is any thread or anything wound around or blocking it. There are one or two screws that will adjust the eveness of your bobbinwinding but I don't think this is part of the problem (just a slight turn for that until the bobbin winds evenly). There is a spring beneith the winder that may have popped loose, check that but if the little arm snaps back and forth thats ok. The spring should be in the second tooth of the gear notches.
I hope this helps.

Your problem lies with the main shaft that is to tight to release the bobbin winder mechanism, because of old grease and oil becoming sticky. A short term solution will be to remove the needle, in order not to hurt you, and then hold on to the needle bar with your left hand, while engaging the bobbin lever with your left hand. This will prevent the main shaft to rotate and your winder should work. In the long term, take it to your dealer to clean the oil and grease. You will not be able to open the machine casing yourselve, as you might damage the casing and or electronics.

Also it is quite possible that the small circuit board (P-print) just below the bobbinwinder that the motor plugs into has gone bad.

Okay, my first take—because it fills bobbins "just fine"—is that the needle bar may be loose. You didn't specify what the service was for: was it just a clean and lube, or did you have a problem? Even with just a clean and lube, the needle-bar height may have needed adjusting, and the tech may not have tightened it securely. Does the needle bar move at all? even just a quick **** or two? If it acts like it is trying to move, but doesn't, that is probably the problem.
Now, here's the bad news (always seems to be some of that with these kinds of things, eh?): That needle-bar height is critical, and it's not something I can just tell you how to do here. The second bit of bad news is that the problem wasn't discovered for a year, so any service warranty is long expired, by now (unless the owner or manager of the store is your bosom bud, or, you are one of his/her best customers).
The good news is, if the shop is reputable, you could return it to them, explain what happened, and ask how much they would charge just to adjust and secure that needle bar (although the machine could probably use some more oil, by now—because it has just been sitting, which is harder on them than if you use them regularly). If they are like the shop I worked for, they will be glad to give you a slightly discounted rate to preserve their reputation, and hopefully, your business relationship with them. They may even throw some oil on it for the same price.
One more bit of good news, the Bernina 830 is one fine sewing machine. It is worth fixing, if any machine is.
Hope this is helpful, and happy sewing!

there is a board inside the foot pedal that goes out sometimes you can check this by flipping the foot pedal upside down and at the top right there is a small hole where you can adjust the speed with a flat head screwdriver but be gentle it breaks easy, if its out you can take it to a bernina dealer and they might have a reapired one or they can send yours off for repair since that part is repair only
