Can't connect to Hub - Factory Reset Disaster

So something went wrong with my Samsung Wifi hub connection and to cut a long story short, I attempted a factory reset.

I’m now in a mess and I can’t connect to my hub. I’ve tried deleting apps, locations and hubs, multiple factory resets and nothing is working. I can’t get red/green flashing after a factory reset to re-add to the app.

The IDE shows only one hub

Name = SmartThings Hub
Hub ID = D052A8AF6E430001_1574061311766_DELETED
Location = Home

I have two Locations (in an attempt to delete the hub):
My Home

I can’t delete either of them. The IDE says they have been deleted, but they never disappear.

When I try to delete the hub on the IDE I get:
500: Internal Server Error
URI /hub/list
Reference Id 70c4f479-70b9-4e4e-a997-c64ad7ac7a00

After a factory reset on the hub, it’s flashing green.

In the new app, if I try to add a hub, it doesn’t detect it.
In the classic app I have the hub just showing as “offline”.

It seems I have a brick.

Any suggestions?

I would suggest contacting support.

Out of curiosity, what inspired you to try deleting hub and locations?

You can likely delete the hub/location now but you will have to re-add all of your devices.

Had a few days of the hub going offline periodically - thought I’d start again.

Hi @Brad_ST

Still can’t delete hub or location.

It’s very likely not just your hub but a smartthings issue that they are not coming clean with. At least not with me.
My New App has not worked for weeks. Old app works fine. Support has been aggressively staying in touch. Telling me they are working on. But nothing has changed. All devices show offline.

I’ve lost a lot of faith in the platform.

I had to create a new account with a new email address. Only then was I able to setup the hub again. I lost all my devices and my Webcore automation.

I’ve now got problems with two out of three devices I’ve added.
