Incorrect Beam Section Properties

I created a custom weldment profile and used it on a weldment that I want to analyze. The weldment meshes find when the elements are treated as beams, but I get an error when I try to run simulation. The error I get reads "The section properties of the beam is incorrect. You can correct the neutral axis to get the correct section properties or exclude the beam from the analysis or treat the beam as a solid." Does anyone know what this means and how I can "correct the neutral axis"? Thanks.
