Instantsearch and the Places widget

My app has the instantsearch Places widget by Algolia. When it works, it works very well. Unfortunately, most of the time it doesn’t work. When it isn’t working, I see this in the console:


When I check in my Algolia dashboard, however, I can see that I am well below the queries/second limit. It has never even reached 10, and from what I see my limit should reach up to 30!

Is there something I am doing wrong here? Does it need to be authenticated somehow? This is how I’m adding the widget:

/* Geo Search */
const placesWidget = placesInstantsearchWidget({
  container: document.getElementById('placesWidgetDiv'),
  type: 'city',
  countries: ['ca', 'us'],
