Just delete the Face Meshing control and it will mesh. Face Meshing is for 4-sided faces (or an annular ring). Your face has 6 sides.
I would open the geometry in DesignModeler, Create a Plane at the cutting plane and slice the middle part in two with that plane, then select the two pieces and Form New Part to mesh them together. This will let you put very small elements at the cutting plane. Right now your mesh bias is making small elements away from the cutting plane. Opening in DesignModler will also make the geometry available for me to edit later. If you don't do that, please zip your .stp geometry input file and attach to your reply so I can have it if I need it later.
I would also remove all the detail off the top of the cutter and slice the part just below that top plate of the cutter. Move the BC's to that new surface created by slicing and suppress the top part of the cutter. That will save some elements that you can use to put more elements through the part being cut.
