Convergence issue in Fluent

I am having some problems finding convergence with my case of study. I am studying the flows in between the blades of a high speed centrifugal pump impeller.
I cannot make the residuals go any lower after 500 hundred iterations approx. It seems like they are stuck.
The order of my residuals are:
I monitor the mass flow rate at the outlet and it gets stable after 500 iterations so it seems like I reached convergence but my lab mates told me I need at least to reach 10-3
I’ve looked at the results and everything seems to be okay. Tip speed, Inlet/outlet velocity, static and total pressure, mass flow rate, velocity vectors…
Can I trust these results? Or how can I improve the residuals? I've done many different tries... It weirds me out that which such less iterations I could get some good results in something that theoretically seems complicated… I’ve done some other simpler studies with Fluent and it required me many more iterations.
