gzip not working properly

A couple of my sites are showing errors for gzip compression in all areas (html, js, etc). I added the "gzip enabling snippet" from my host into .htaccess, but am still getting an error from hummingbird.
Any idea what's going on?

    Hello Eric,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    There's a couple of possibilities here and the most common are:

    - there's no required module enabled on server
    - there are required modules enabled but there's something in server and/or site configuration that's interfering
    - or it's a "false warning" and the site is actually compressed but Hummingbird cannot detect it.

    Having that said, please get in touch with your host and make sure that the deflate module for your webserver is enabled. If they confirm that, please share a list of these sites with me here so I could make sure whether the compression is not enabled indeed or if it is but Hummingbird doesn't detect it.

    Best regards,
    Adam
