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.

New to expresso machine - Cuisinart EM100c

This is a very loud machine. Here's the normal operation: You turn it on, and wait a few minutes for it to heat up, at which point the heating light will go off. Then make sure the function knob is turned to coffee, and it will start brewing. At first, it will make a short (loud) sound and then stop for a second. The purpose behind this is that the machine is pre-wetting the coffee, so that steam can more easily shoot through it in a couple of seconds. Then the loud noise will start again and run continuously until you turn the function knob back to the center. So, the sounds you were hearing were normal. There is a delay between when you hear the sounds and the water starts flowing out. If the coffee is pressed down (tamped) too hard, that delay will be longer. Hope this helps. You made a much better choice purchasing this machine rather than the more expensive EM-200, in my opinion.

Problem Water Flow in the Cusinart EM-100 Model

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.

Can't get milk to foam

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!
