    If a previously installed Kasa Smart Plug is no longer working, there may be several reasons:

    • Not connected to Wi-Fi: The smart plug will not work properly if it is not connected to Wi-Fi. Sudden power failure (when power is turned off and then on again) may be the cause. Unplug the smart plug, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in to see if it works. If not, try one of the reset methods above.
    • You are not connected to the correct network.: Most owners are not aware that the Kasa Smart Plug needs to be connected to a 2.4GHz network. 5GHz networks do not work. Check that the network to which the smart plug is connected is correct.
    • The app has not set up a plug.: Once you have installed and connected the smart plug, you need to install it in the app, and to connect to Alexa, you also need to connect it to the Alexa app. Again, the Kasa app should guide you through the process.
