Type error: fn is not a function. I don't know how to fix that.. Any help? (VSC)

Hello. I’d like to ask for help/advice. I’ve been trying to code a Discord bot to do a Timed mute, but there seems to be an error which I don’t know how to fix.

The error:

if (fn(val, key, this))

TypeError: fn is not a function

Here is my coding:

switch (args[0]) {
case ‘mute’:

            let person = message.guild.roles.cache.find(message.mentions.users.first() || message.guild.roles.cache.find(args[1]))

            if (!person) return message.reply("Person does not exist/Couldn't find member");

            let mainrole = message.guild.roles.find(role => role.name === "Berries");

            let muterole = message.guild.roles.find(role => role.name === "Muted D:");

            if (!muterole) return message.reply("Unable to find muterole");

            let time = args[2];

            if (!time) {

                return message.reply("Time not specified");




            message.channel.send(`@${person.user.tag} has been muted for ${ms(ms(time))}`);

            setTimeout(function () {



                message.channel.send(`@${person.user.tag} has been unmuted!`)

            }, ms(time));


I’m a begginer actually, and I don’t know what’s wrong with my coding. I would very appreciate any kind of help or explanation! :slight_smile:

It looks like you haven’t declared fn() anywhere.

Yes, that is what confuses me. I did not declare fn or anything that the error says. I don’t know if I should declare it, or how do I fix it?

The error message should tell you on what line of which file the error is.

Looks like the discordjs module that you are using is probably expecting you to implement something in a particular way that you aren’t.
