Too many requests in ChatGPT: How to fix

“Too many requests” message, i.e. too many requests in ChatGPT means, as a rule, that there are really more of them than it should be in 1 hour. Or different requests arrive too quickly. Or some query the AI ​​finds too complex…

Therefore, in order to prevent Too many requests from appearing longer, we try to ask questions not so quickly and / or formulate them simpler.

In addition, when ChatGPT writes that there are too many requests, it will not be superfluous to double-check the status of the server – [LINK] – because sometimes this “error” also occurs due to another overload on the other side.

That is, it may very well be that there are a lot of requests not from you specifically, but from everyone in general. Servers do not have time to “digest” them and begin to fail.

Therefore, when we see a lot of red or orange instead of green on the page for checking the status of ChatGPT servers, we just have to wait an hour or two until the situation gets better (or gets better).

Along the way, you can re-enter the chat a couple of times (log out of your account and then log in again) and reconnect to the service in this way. Or, if there are more than one account, then we try to temporarily re-login to another – it also sometimes helps.

But when there are obviously few requests, all are simple and clearly formulated, while the servers are functioning normally (two or more consecutive checks show a consistently green status indicator), however …


… Then in this case it makes sense to take a few more additional measures. Namely:

firstly , we create a new chat – that is, go to the corresponding page of the site – [LINK] or, if it is already open, then restart it ( F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R ) and click ” New Chat ” (on the left).

Secondly, we clean the browser cache and re-enter ChatGPT – the procedure is standard, so let’s just recall:

  • in Chrome : Ctrl + Shift + Del > select “Cookies and other site data” + “Cached images and files” > click the button “Delete data” ;
  • Edge : Ctrl + Shift + Del > select “Cookies and other site data” + “Images and other files stored in the cache” and click the button “Delete now” ;
  • in Firefox : Ctrl + Shift + Del > select “Cookies” and “Cache” > press the button “OK” .

Thirdly, we try to log in through any other browser (Safari, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Opera, Brave, etc.) or open a chat not from a computer, but from a smartphone (tablet) or vice versa.
