fill the reservoir overnight with a half-half mix of white vinegar and water, then run it for a few minutes until it boils, try and turn the knob for the frother. turn the machine off and let it cool enough to empty the vinegar solution out, rinse a few times including running to boiling, and hopefully the calcium buildup which is almost certainly causing your problem will be cleared. if not, try again with 100% white vinegar, and if you can figure out how to take the frother nozzle and/or arm off the machine then soak them too. Hopefully this will get you frothing again :)

SOURCE: saeco milk island - no froth
I agree with the poster that the key item is the little black plug (referred to as the valve in the supporting documentation). My milk island frothed beautifully for 2 months before gradually decreasing until I was getting just hot flat milk every time.
The valve has a dark grey pointed rubber plug which is possible to pull out and clean, and is fitted back in the hole by poking it back in. But what I found made a huge difference were the two slots/holes in the top of the valve piece. In my case they were clogged up (invisibly) with dried milk. As soon as I used a needle to unclog and clean the holes under a running tap, it got back to frothing again.
Whenever I use the milk island, I make sure I rinse and clean all parts immediately after use, leave them to dry, and before putting together again give the two holes in the valve a brief hard blow to clear it of water. The whole cycle takes about 30 seconds at most.

SOURCE: Kenmore replacement carafe
had the same thing happen when my carafe broke. Mine is 238.69328 which is the black coffee maker. The simple solution is to head to Walmart and buy the GE replacement carafe. It's the 12 cup capacity one #169164. The box has 169180 on the bottom and it works like the old one and looks just as good no matter what color your coffee pot is. The cost-about $10.
