Time Dependent study on condenser keeps failing

I have a shell and tube heat exchanger with steam in the shell and water in the tubes, but every time I run a time dependent study, it reads "Solver abnormally terminated; contact support service" after the first iteration. If I don't run the time dependent study, the simulation works; I do need a time dependent study.

Further, I don't understand why my steam is not cooling down, even the slightest bit, but for some reason the water in the tubes is boiling before it gets to its outlet.

 

I attached the zip file with all my parts and lids for better help.
