hi guys,
i am getting this problem often for simple Foam as well as turbFoam.

the message is

You should play with your nume
You should play with your numerical schemes and/or improve the quality of your mesh.
Try to post here the output of checkMesh and your fvSchemes and fvSolution files. Maybe someone can suggest you some improvement...

Try manipulating internal Fiel
Try manipulating internal Field values. My experience with OpenFOAM tells me that the codes are very sensitive to initial values.
