It means your door is either not in the plane of the or it is too big for the wall. Doors and windows must be slightly smaller than the wall they are in.

Subject: [EnergyPlus_Support] Subsurface error
I have the following error regarding a large door on a building wall. No matter how many times I try, I cannot get rid of it. I have ensured that the coordinates of the subsurface are indeed within the base surface. I have also checked and rechecked to ensure that the coordinates are in the right order (starting in the UpperLeftCorner and in a CounterClockwise direction as mandated by my GlobalGeometryRules settings).
** Warning ** Base surface does not surround subsurface (CHKSBS), Overlap Status=No-Overlap
** ~~~ ** The base surround errors occurred 1 times.
** ~~~ ** Surface "SURFACE 19" misses SubSurface "SUB SURFACE 3"
Anyone ever had this issue before?
