Dear Mrs. and Mr. Muthen,

I am performing an exploratory structural equation modeling with categorical variables, but unfortunately, 2 of my loadings are up to 1 or very close to 1.
I suppose I have negative residual variance, but I'm unable to fix the problem.
I know I have to switch to theta parameterization, test if the variance if significant, and fix it to 0 if not, but I don't know how to do.
Can you help me?

My model is:
F1-F3 BY V1-V10 (*1);
[F1@0 F2@0 F3@0];

Thank you
