Question about The Office Equipment & Supplies
I could not strip the thermostatic cartridge, so simply refitted it. Could I have damaged it or tightened it too much?

SOURCE: Water flow through humidifier
The solenoid that turns on the water to the unit should not change the water flow, so you should get the same amount of water that flows into the solenoid. If you want less water, you can partially close the valve at the water source.

I might have answered this one already, but:
Confirm one more time that the knob is lined up with the "o" in the middle - if it is leaning even slightly toward the coffee cup icon or the water/steam icon, water may come forth.
If the knob is perfectly in the middle, then the calibration is probably off (although I can think of one other possibility). Rather than deal with an expensive and warranty-voiding repair, I would just call Cuisinart - that unit has a three-year warranty, and I believe every single one of the EM-100's was introduced less than three years ago. Just write down the serial number that is on the bottom of the espresso maker, and call up Cuisinart - no receipt will be required as the serial number will almost invariably be enough in this case. If you live outside of California, you will have to pay for shipping - probably about $25 all together. But you will be getting a brand-new unit in return.

the defroster isn't close enough to the drain to be effective. remove the back wall of the inside of the freezer, remove the excess ice. clear out the ice from the drain using hot water and a turkey baster. there is a kit from whirlpool that uses a piece of metal and a screw around the defrost rod, but I found out that a piece of 14 gauge solid core wire with the insulation stripped off works great too. stick the stripped wire into the drain, 2 to 3 inches, and wrap the rest around the defrost rod.

I will have to assume this issue developed and was not present at first use after the initial installation.
There are generally only two reasons for your problem. The first is that the diverter mechanism is simply wearing out and/or broken. The second it that there is a foreign object preventing it from doing its job correctly. Either way the diverter must come out. I have provided a couple of links below that should help get it out.
Once out, put a wadded up towel over the end of the tub spout opening so as to prevent any water from coming out of it. Then, for just a moment, turn your shower on full and adjust your temperature from full cold to full hot. This process should dislodge any foreign matter and send it out the opening the diverter came out of and also will probably get you wet. I usually plug the tub so I can catch what, if anything, comes out. Having a second person holding a bowl over the diverter opening helps reduce the water splash.
Rinse off the diverter and reinstall it. Turn the shower on and see if there is any difference in how much water comes out the spout while in the shower mode. If nothing has changed then the next step is to replace the diverter.
The diverter assembly part number is A603819
