Resurrected sewing machine!

I found my Bernette for Bernina 6800 which has been in storage of some kind since I last used it, over a decade ago. I would love to get it running again and get a lot of use out of it--what should be my next steps?

The machine was a gift when I was in my early teens; I used it a few times and then grew frustrated (probably not enough measuring before cutting). I think I remember it was always jamming up on me, but I'm again hoping that was user error and not a problem with the machine.
So, if you know about these things, where should I take the machine to make sure it's in good shape? Can I do this myself? Where can I get spare parts? Is this actually a terrible machine that I should get rid of and buy another?
