SOURCE: 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!

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.

This is a general comment for people having problems with leaks and pressure in their espresso machines. If you do not used filtered water, the minerals and other materials suspended in the water will bond to the moving parts and tubes of your machine (e.g.: scale). The problem will be worse if you live in an area with particularly hard water. In some cases the pressure pipes can get completely blocked and if the pump is powerful enough, the pipes can rupture, otherwise, the pump will simply not put out any water. The solution is to regularly flush out the system with descaler. The frequency of cleaning depends upon how often you use the machine. You can get descaler from any decent coffe place (like Starbucks), an appliance repair place, or the hardware store. I use CLR which is sold at hardware stores. CLR stands for Calcium-Lime-Rust, and it effectively cleans all of these and is cheaper than specialty scale removers. Simply dilute some in water and pour the mixture in the machine, then cycle the pump and run it through. Collect the spent liquid and run it through again 4 or 5 times (or more if you've never cleaned your machine before...) Allow the liquid to sit for 10-15 minutes between flushes so that the solution has a chance to eat away at the scale. Once you have done this a few times, flush out the machine thoroughly with clean water 4 or 5 times, using CLEAN water each time you rinse. If you want to get an idea of the scale that has been removed, keep a small amount of the original clean solution in a glass and then compare the spend cleaning liquid with unused cleaning liquid to see the difference. The spent liquid should be foggy/muddy compared to the clean stuff and if you let it sit, the scale will settle to the bottom of the glass and will be clearly visible. You can prevent some of the buildup in your machine by using filtered water as they do at Starbucks.

DPcurry is right. You may have to plug it in to get a "feel" for which way and to what degree to rotate the shaft, but works like a charm.

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.

My EM-200 stopped working. The steam was not comiong out, then the machine started "clicking", now it will not power up at all. I even unplugged, let cool, stil noting, no light, no sounds.


Take it back to the store and get a refund! Do it now. Do not buy another or accept a warranty offer! I have had a EM200C for 3 years now, or rather I should say I've had 3 of them. The first one was a gift and stopped working after about 5 months (the water would not flow through the coffee basket) the second one stopped working after about 8 months use when the motor burnt out, the 3rd warranty replacement I got a month a go and the steam wand is not working. A very little bit of hot water comes out, it is not plugged by milk because I have never used it and I also soaked it in hot water and tried repeatedly to clear it. My opinion is that while Cuisinart was once a trusted name in small appliances, this is no longer the case.

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!
