[EnergyPlus_Support] Heat Recovery Problem

Hi all,
I'm repeatedly having the following warning for my Energy Plus model in which i tried to simulate a heat recovery system (using HeatExchanger:AirToAir:SensibleAndLatent).

   ** Warning ** HeatExchanger:AirToAir:SensibleAndLatent "OA HEAT RECOVERY 3"
   **   ~~~   ** Average air volume flow rate is <50% or >130% of the nominal HX supply air volume flow rate.
   **   ~~~   ** Air volume flow rate ratio = 0.494. Occurrence info= HEADMASTER'S RESIDENCE, 01/01 08:00 - 08:15

Does anyone have experience with such a warning? I tried to overcome it by changing input parameters in objects of Controller:OutdoorAir or Fan:VariableVolume or Sizing:System but unfortunately I cannot manage to solve it.
Many Thanks.
