Induction heating - "Failed to find consistent initial values. Last time step is not converged."

I have a problem to complete the simple simulation of induction heating, using BH/HB curves. After some short time of computation I get a result: "Failed to find consistent initial values.
Last time step is not converged." I found strange think to me, when I set user defined |H|=0 (zero) into "Magnetic Field" part of Induction Heating Model 1, I've got a satisfy-looking results. When I change the |H|=0 to |H| from material, solving crashed. It makes no sense to me if I'm right, how steel can be heated with zero magnetic field in it. Thank you for help and let me apologize, if the solution of my problem will be primitive...I just started with COMSOL ;)
