I am experiencing a similar problem. I don't think it is particularly related to clustering because I do get this statistic in some other specifications that are also estimated with clustering. But when I try some other variables, Kleibergen-Paap rk LM statistic is missing. In my case, I have two endogenous variables and when (Kleibergen-Paap rk LM statistic) is missing, F test of excluded instruments is not calculated either (it is reported as 0.00) even though Angrist-Pischke multivariate F test of excluded instruments is reported and significantly different from zero.
