Why 3D solid-pore geometry showing diverged solution?

Hello everyone,

I am using solidDisplacement solver for 3D solid-pore cube geometry. Following are displacement D boundary conditions:

boundaryField
{
electron_minX
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 0 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}

electron_maxX
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 0 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_minY
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 10 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_maxY
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 -10 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_minZ
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 0 0);
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_maxZ
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 0 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_to_pore
{
type tractionDisplacement;
traction uniform ( 0 0 0 );
pressure uniform 0;
value uniform (0 0 0);

}
electron_to_npore
{
type zeroGradient;
}

}

OpenFOAM simulation is giving diverge solution. Following is part of log file:

I have done similar 3D cube geometry problem without pore in which got converge solution. But I do not know why similar boundary conditions are not giving converge solution for solid-pore 3D cube geometry. I have also tried OpenFOAM-ext but similar problem is coming. When I am using three symmetry planes I get converge solution but when I am taking all surfaces as solution domain I get diverge solution. How I can get converge solution with considering all surfaces of the 3D cube (solid-pore phase) geometry?

Does someone has any idea why this problem is coming? How I can solve this problem?
