How to Fix an Amazon Smart Plug That Keeps Turning Off By Itself

Elizabeth Frank28 Jan 2022

Amazon’s smart plug is a great way to save you money. But sometimes, it can be tough to know why the plug keeps turning off by itself. Sometimes it’s just an issue with the plug, and other times it might be something more sinister. Here are some tips to help you fix an Amazon smart plug that keeps turning off by itself.

What is Amazon Smart Plug?

The Amazon Smart Plug is a smart device that allows you to control all your electronics from one place. It’s a great product for anyone who has multiple devices in their home, but it doesn’t come with a lot of advanced features. That is why there are many other similar products on the market, including the Powerful Smart Plug, which works with Alexa and has more advanced features.

The Reasons Why Amazon Smart Plugs Turn Off By Themselves

There are a few different reasons why an Amazon smart plug might keep turning off by itself. Here is a list of the most common reasons:

1. The battery is low on the smart plug.

If your Amazon smart plug is set to turn off after a short period of time, it's possible that the battery is running low on power. Remember to read the instructions on how to charge your smart plug and double-check that you're charging it in the proper manner. Some plugs come with built-in rechargeable batteries, while others require the use of an external charger, which can be obtained separately. If you require additional batteries for these plugs, you can purchase them. However, this will cost you more money than if you simply purchased an additional one for each of your plugged-in devices that use this particular brand of the plug.

2. The power cord is damaged or frayed and causing problems with the power going into the device or outlet.

Alternatively, if the power cord on your Amazon smart plug has become frayed or damaged and is causing the device to shut down, you can either purchase a new cord or try replacing the cord with a different one. The best course of action is to contact Amazon and ask them for assistance in resolving the issue. If you call them, they will be able to provide you with advice on what might be wrong with your smart plug and how to fix it.

3. The power outlet isn’t working properly and it’s not receiving enough power from the wall outlet.

If your Amazon smart plug is shutting down on its own due to a problem with the outlet, check to see that the outlet is receiving a sufficient amount of power from your wall socket before proceeding. For example, if this outlet is constantly being used by other items, it may not be able to provide enough power to keep your plugged-in devices powered up when connected to an Amazon smart plug. Before using an Amazon smart plug, make sure that all of the other devices that are connected to this particular outlet have enough power coming out of them to function properly.

4. The power cord is too long and the Amazon smart plug can’t be attached to it.

If the Amazon smart plug is unable to connect to the outlet due to a power cord that is too long, you may need to purchase an extension cord for your wall outlet to make the connection. Use of an extension cord that is too long is not recommended because it may cause problems with your other electrical devices. Make sure to use a power extension cord that has been tested and approved for use with your Amazon smart plug as well as any other electrical appliances in your home to avoid any problems.

5. The wall socket isn’t compatible with the Amazon smart plug and it can’t be used with this particular outlet (or you may have a bad wall socket).

Before plugging it into another outlet, if you have purchased an Amazon smart plug, make sure that it is compatible with the type of wall outlet that you have in your home. When purchasing a wall outlet, make sure that it is compatible with the Amazon smart plug. Otherwise, you will have to buy another wall outlet for your home.

What To Do If The Plug Keeps Turning Off By Itself?

If the plug keeps turning off on its own and the light is not blinking, it is possible that you will need to reset it. 1. To begin, unplug your Amazon smart plug from the wall outlet, turn off your home's electricity, and then unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait for at least 20 seconds before attempting to reconnect it. 2. Connect your Amazon smart plug to a power source and wait for it to activate. If you see a green light illuminated, it indicates that Amazon has successfully reset your device. There may be a problem with either your Amazon smart plug or your wall outlet if there is still no light or if there is a red light on and a power cord that is still connected to the wall outlet after you've tried everything else (or both). 3. Connect your Amazon smart plug to a different wall outlet to see if that works better (you'll need to buy one). If you are still experiencing difficulties with this method, please contact customer service for further assistance.

Final Thoughts

As described above, the Amazon smart plug may need to be reset if it keeps turning off on its own, as described above. If it is still not working, it is possible that there is a problem with your wall outlet or that there is a problem with the Amazon Smart Plug. If you're still having problems, you might want to consider purchasing a different smart plug, as this is not a common problem with them. To receive additional assistance, you can also contact Amazon Customer Service.
