please help with combustion divergence!!

I am simulating a steady flame of lean methane/air mixture in a swirl stabilized dump combustor. Because of similarity, i took only quarter section of combustor with periodic boundary condition in the azimuthal direction. my equivalence ratio is 0.65. the problem is that when i used finite rate/eddy dissipation model i have no ignition despite i tried both patching and initialization. i tried eddy dissipation model alone and i have divergence error in AMD solver and temperature exceeds 5000. i tried patching the entire domain with 2500 k and i have the same errors. i tried patching with products in the entire domain and i got same errors. i tried without patching at all and i got same errors!!!
of course this all were done either with initializing the solution or starting with steady cold flow solution.
kindly advice what to do, shall i check the grid or what, knowing that i use pressure based solver, second order schemes and courant number of 1.
