The status page is normal.

Could be massive request volume from chatGPT causing issues.

Not your fault.

We’re investigating elevated errors on text-davinci-003. We’re actively looking into this and preparing a resolution.


We’ve just pushed a fix to resolve the issue – apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you for reporting!


is text-devinci-003 not ready for production?

I mean will this happen again? if so i can down grade to 002

Same issue for me, I often have 503 with davinci-003 :confused:

Just for this error for 2 of my customers. text-003 is creating issue, if its not production ready, please let us know.

Still facing this issue feb 21 2023.

I’m getting 500 Internal Server Error now, and I’ve seen it for 15 minutes. I’m using text-embedding-ada-002

As you can see is a general issue, the servers are down “Major outage” check the current status https://status.openai.com/

Receiving 503 while status remains operational

503 (Service Unavailable) the api is not responding or something will this take a longer time to be resolved ?

now i have the 401 (Unauthorized) error
