HA stopped working after reboot server (solved)

Hi all,

*** solved after removing afvalwijzer custom component (weird) tnx discord #tinkerer

After a Kernel update and reboot of my Ubuntu server HA stopped working (won’t start).
I get the following messages:

Server is a HP Microserver N40l running Ubuntu server.
HA is 114.4 in docker and worked without any problems till the reboot.

Anyone a clue? Help would be greatly appreciated,


I had the same issue.
Also resolved after removing the afvalwijzer component.
Thnx for updating your post with the solution :slight_smile:


Thanks man!!!

Was struggling with 5-10 “RuntimeError: Event loop is closed” and found this post.
Also did a kernel update a few days ago but didn’t had the courage to reboot and after the reboot whole HA was going mad…

After removing the afvalwijzer from the “custom_components” directory HA 0.115.0b4 is flying!


Thank you very much for the solution you’ve provided!
I really wouldn’t have found out myself it was “afvalwijzer” which was causing the issue.

Oh I’m having the same problem! Is it a temporary bug or is the ‘afwalwijzer’ component done?

There is a issue page on github and the creator is making changes, I didn’t activate it again myself.

Looks like it takes some time to fix
