How to Fix Amazon Smart Thermostat Unresponsive Issues: Troubleshooting Guide
1. Reboot the Thermostat
One of the simplest solutions for an unresponsive Amazon Smart Thermostat is to reboot it, similar to rebooting a computer. This can often resolve software glitches or temporary issues that may be causing the thermostat to become unresponsive.
- Press and hold the “OK” button on the thermostat for about 10 seconds.
- The thermostat will turn off and then back on, displaying the Amazon logo.
- Once the thermostat has fully rebooted, check if it is now responsive.

Make sure that your thermostat is connected to a power source and that the wiring is secure. You can check the wiring by removing the thermostat from the wall and inspecting the connections.
