I have a model where the solve command terminates because "Solver has stalled: starting values may be too far from a solution" (See attached workfile):

Model: AAMODEL

Date: 01/07/16 Time: 13:18

Sample: 2005Q1 2008Q4

Solve Options:

Dynamic-Deterministic Simulation

Solver: Newton

Max iterations = 5000, Convergence = 1e-08

Scenario: Baseline

Solve begin 13:18:19

Solve terminated - Solver has stalled: starting values may be too far from a solution

I pinned down the problem to the last equation in the model

0 * pM92C + pv92S = (m92u * pM92U + m92c * pM92C + pE92S * e92S + pFT92S * ft92S + pF92S * f92S) / x92S + zlw92S * w92S / 1000

The model

*aamodel01*is a copy of

*aamodel*but without this last equation. There is no problem in solving model

*aamodel01*.

Can you please provide some guidance of why this problem occurs? Is there anything I can do to change starting values or do you have any suggestions on how I should proceed when I see the error message ""Solver has stalled: starting values may be too far from a solution".
