Unrealistic Temperature Gradients after refining mesh in some parts

I want to keep it short and describe my problem.
I generated a 2D Mesh for ribbed channel where I want to analyse conjugate Heat Transfer and validate experimental Nusselt data.
Some key facts from my analysis:
K-omega SST turbulence model, Contact-IF between Solid(Rib) and Fluid, AllY+-Treatment, WallY+ 0-13 ,Air enters the channel with an Temperatur of 293,15K, I set a constant heat flux of 200 W/m≤ for the channel bottom and rib bottom .
The channel consists of 12 ribs. The flow can be assumed as periodic. Therefore I evaluated just the Nu-Distribution between rib 9 and 10.
I've generated a grid which had a really good accurancy but I couldn't get satisfactory results for the validation.
Based on that I decided to refine the mesh from rib 9 to rib 10 and the walls were Heat is transfered. After refining I got a Wall Y+ values of <1 ( just for the near wall area from rib 9 to 10, rest of the channel remained between 0-13)
I expected to get better results (means more equal to the experimental data as before) in the refined area.
However I got unrealistic temperature gradients in the refined area of the solid and bad accurancy.
Can someone describe why the solution is that bad ?
I put some pictures in the attachment for better illustration.
I hope this helps.Thank you.
