Incompatabile Meshing thermal analysis

After reading through several of the thermal posts, I noticed acomment that explains my results.  The comment, from post Mesh Control stated "
I have tried the incompatiblemesh on a thermal study and found out that there is no heattransfer between parts if it is meshed as incompatible." Thisis exactly what I am seeing in my thermal analysis.  Theassembly will not mesh without "imcompatible mesh" beingselected but the analysis will run, but the results are notcorrect.  There is absolutely no thermal conduction. 

How to fix this problem?  

I will be glad to attach an image or email the assembly.  

Thank you,
