Andrea Rossi has commented recently that the early E-Cat SK heating devices have had problems in their operations, but he has not explained in any detail what the problems have been.
Yesterday a commenter on the Journal of Nuclear Physics when asked to assign a grade to the performance of the E-Cat SK so far:

A) Can you tell us how many plants are already operating with your customers?
B) Can you tell us your personal degree of satisfaction with the current operation of the plants with a value from 1 to 10?
C) Have any of your customers shown any degree of satisfaction with the choice to have accepted to test your plants in their companies? Also here you can give us a numerical index
(for 1-: -10) of the level of appreciation perceived?
I apologize for my bad English: mine is mediocre and google translate does what it can
to improve it.

A- in due time
C- yes, I.d say 7/10
As always with Rossi we get very little explanation in his responses, so a lot is open to speculation. He has said previously that there have been problems to solve with the E-Cat itself, with the heat exchanger, and with the remote control system. The E-Cat SK is a brand new product, with no track record, so it is to be expected that there will be issues to deal with. Andrea Rossi has said that he is currently in a “pioneer market phase, with many issues to assess.”
