How to Fix "Couldn't refresh feed" on Instagram

1. Network Connectivity

The most possible reason for this error is caused by network disconnection. Therefore, on seeing the error, the first thing you should do is to check your network connection.

Check whether your Wi-Fi/mobile network is connected. Even if there is network connected, the Instagram error still could happen if the network signal is weak. So open a page in the browser, if the page loads slowly, it indicates a weak network signal. Therefore you might use Instagram later when the network signal is strong or switch between cellular data and Wi-Fi data to see if the other one works better.

Mobile data amount limitation: if you tend to enco Instagram official help center also gives two possible explanations for this loading difficulty error.

  • Mobile data amount limitation: if you tend to encounter with the problem at the end of each month, the feed error is probably caused by your mobile carrier limiting your mobile data after a certain amount of data usage in a month. Contact your mobile carrier for the problem.
  • Overloaded mobile network connection: you may come across the error when many people try to use a mobile network simultaneously, such as in a concert or baseball game.

I have two instagram accounts, one works perfectly while the other keeps giving me “couldn’t refresh feed error.” I have eliminated three of the potential causes for the error; A) I have a strong internet connection B) I am using the latest version of instagram C) A technical glitch beyond my understanding – I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and have had no success in rectifying the issue. **ANSWER** The real cause behind the problem is you have incurred a penalty which has lead to your account having a restricted service and level of access. The only way to fix the problem is to wait until your accounts restrictions have been lifted and you are given full access again. **NOTE** I would avoid engaging in any activities that could further restrict your account and incur a penalty.
