The only thing you can service is the battery - when it gets old and cannot hold a charge then you can replace it.  Otherwise it is not user serviceable because there are some serious capacitors in the thing that will knock you across the room.  If you already know how to safely work with such things, then go ahead, but unless you are an electronics repair professional please don't try to work on the innards of a UPS.
