I am getting “System.ArgumentException: Value does not fall within the expected range.”, how can I fix this issue?

1. Increase list view look up threshold
2. SharePoint implements metadata columns as Lookup Lists behind the scenes. If you use Sharepoint Manager or some other tool you will notice there is a hidden list at the Site Collection Level "TaxonomyHiddenList". Every hour the “Taxonomy Update Scheduler” Timer Job is responsible for syncing this list with Central Term Store Management. This is really the list your columns are syncing with.
3. SharePoint 2010 introduced the concept of Resource Throttling at the Web Application level.
To find the setting go to Central Admin -> Application Management->Manage Web Applications. Select General Settings->Resource Throttling.
