SOURCE: cuisinart EM-200 espresso machine won't make coffee

you might check the water hose and make sure that it didn't come disconected. sometime they wear out over time and strech becoming loos. and when that happens the maker can not **** the water through the tube into the expressor mix causeing it to make u sucking noise.

Most of the time, you just have to reposition the water reservoir - simply pull it up and then put it back in its proper place. If the water tank is even a centimeter off, the suction tube doesn't properly grab it, so it can't take in water.

If you reposition the water tank, and the EM-100 is still not sucking any water out of the tank, there may be a problem with the water reservoir tank itself. Call Cuisinart - I can't remember the Canadian number off-hand (The EM-100C is a Canadian model, so I'm assuming you're in Canada) - and have them send you a new water tank.

Good luck! Let me know if you need any more help with this machine - I am a huge raving fan.

SOURCE: My Cuisanart Espresso Maker EM-100 is creating a vacuum

Very strange problem for that model. I would remove the portafilter holder, and then run 3 cups distilled white vinegar through the machine - let it run on the espresso setting first, then let it run on the steam/water setting, with the function knob turned to water, and not steam. Clean any espresso grinds off the metal element that the portafilter holder usually conceals. Then try making a batch using the double filter basket, but only use a tiny amount of espresso - don't tamp very hard. If all is well, proceed to use the espresso maker. If not, call Cuisinart - that model has a 3-year warranty.

Agree about cleaning / replacing gasket -- BUT....not every espresso machine should be backflushed!!!

Before you attempt to backflush your machine be sure that it has a three-way valve. Otherwise you may damage the machine.

Do you know where can i find the rubber gasket that goes around the brew head of my Cuisinart EM 100 espresso machine ?


It sounds to me that your group seal is bad. Since this machine is a 15-Bar unit, it puts out quite a bit of pressure causing water to leak out around the portafilter when making espresso if your seal is old or damaged. The pressure doesn't build up as much when you are running just water through the machine - hence the reason why the machine works ok without grounds. I sell a LOT of parts and accessories for various manufacturers of espresso machines. This particular seal is extremely difficult to locate fom Cuisinart, but is rather easy to replace. Through extensive testing, I have located a replacement gasket produced by another major manufacturer that fits the Cuisinart EM-100 & EM-200 machines perfectly. I sell them for $10.99 each (or two for $19.99) which includes shipping in the continental US and I accept Paypal. If you would like to contact me via email (cowboy_romeo@yahoo.com), I will be happy to help you out.

Cuisinart EM 200U expresso machine instructions


Slide water chamber out and put filtered water in it - i would make only 1 cup at a time, so fill only to the minimum fill line. Most tap water will overpower the taste of the espresso. Use grounds, not pods - podded espresso will come out too weak. I would suggest using the double filter cup instead of the single - doubles can be ordered from Cuisinart website.

Here's a link to the manual:
