My EM 100 is not heating the water up

Our espresso maker is about 1 week old and the water is sporadically warm or tepid at best. If we use the hot water function it sporadically hot, but not every time.

Four month old coffee machine, little used, not producing hot water or steam, the coffee regular is tepid at best


If your four month old coffee machine is not working as expected, you should claim your warranty where you bought it so it should be repaired.

I want an espresso and it's not working...


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.

Can't get milk to foam


Place 1/3 part distilled white vinegar and 2/3 part water into the water reservoir. Turn the machine on and wait for the heat light to go off. Once the heat light goes off, turn the steam vs. water knob to the water drop icon, and turn the main function knob to steam/water. Make sure to have your frothing cup underneath the steam element ready to catch the water. The vinegar/water solution should clear out the calcium that clogs the steam element. Also, remove the cover to the steam element and dip it in a bowl with vinegar for about 5 minutes, and use something like a pipe cleaner to clean out that cover. Then apply vinegar and hot water to a rag and clean the calcium off the shaft of the steam element. Once you are all finished with this, run plain water through the espresso maker on the steam/water setting to clear out the bitter vinegar residue. Now, try again to make espresso and froth it.

Since milk contains calcium, the steam element has to be decalcified more often than a regular coffee maker. The EM-100 is a beautiful machine, but it is definitely high-maintenance - you will probably spend more time cleaning it than making cappuccino, etc.

Good luck!

How long have you had the machine? Use a straight pin and poke the opening of the wand. It may be blocked. If the bottom of the wand can be removed, use some pliers, and CAREFULLY remove it, soak it in hot water. Rinse it thoroughly, and replace it back on the machine. If you cannot remove the wand, turn the machine upside down, and check the opening to the wand. It most likely is stopped up. Run vinegar and water through your machine once a week. Calcium build up does the same thing. Good luck! Happy Lattes!

Cuisinart DCC 1150: coffee is not hot enough


Using the 1-4 cup setting will help, but that model does not have an actual heating element in the plate - definitely not the right model for someone who likes very hot coffee.

Giotto premium - is it a lemon?


My friend, had the same feeling,,,What have a done !! This piece of junk for all my dollars! No ,,it needs cleaning. Read all my comments re this. You can open this machine witha few fixed keys and mantain it. It will outlast you, when correctly mantained. All solid cupper and metal, no plastic. take it apart and CLEAN IT!
Remember - it is built by a human beeing. The ECM is a buty as it has very little automation built in. Very siple function = löong time in love with your machine. It is totally ANALOG = tweek it = better cogffee. /// Olev
