Cuisinart EM-200 espresso machine won't make coffee

My espresso machine worked fine this morning. Now, it just makes a lot of strange noises but no coffee comes out. (Yes, there's water in the resevoir.)

    The water resevoir is firmly in place-- there is no hose on the outside. A little water comes in b/c there's a little water in the piece that holds the coffee grounds and there's a lot of pressure there because it's hard to take off that piece to check.

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.

    also the word that is **** is take

    also if you have one of thoses that have the removable water tanks than make sure that nothing is in the way of it when you set it back down into the coffee maker. you might also look inside where you the tank would sit and make sure something is not blocking the flow.

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 (, I will be happy to help you out.

My Cuisanart Espresso Maker EM-100 is creating a vacuum, so no liquid comes out and then I have to wait an hour to be able to remove the part that holds the coffee. Apparently it creates a vaccuum, holding...

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.

I was about to abndon pods on this machine, and then I actually used the Pod filter basket - it worked like a charm. Decalcifying is not a bad idea.

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:
