Another thing is do u get this problem as soon as you initilise or from the first iteration. If so, then initialise the k and e as k = 0.0001 and e = 0.001, this shall not give you ratio warning if every thing is okey.

(effective viscosity affects your convergence very much). second issue is how fluent restrict the ratio, it does this by modifying turbulent viscosity and dissipation, that is k will be same, only epsilon will be adjusted for k-e model, now increase in limit means, dissipation max value is increased. Higher the dissipation (increasing to 10^7 etc) lower your chance of getting convergence with this model. best bet is to restrict the ratio to maximum possible (realistically ) values. So if i aspect 5000 as max ratio, i would restrict it to 7000 max), its been observed that in some cases this approach result in covergence.
