How to Reset Amazon Fire TV Device to Factory Default

Sometimes your Fire TV device can develop problems over time.  This is usually due to one or more Fire TV Apps that get corrupted or your device becomes low on storage.  And if you use your Fire TV device to stream media using any of the apps that I write about here such as Popcorn Time, Morph TV, Titanium TV or Stremio, it’s a good idea to do a reset periodically because some of these apps can build up garbage over time and fill up your device’s memory.

Always use a VPN when using your Amazon Fire TV Device.  Your ISP will slow down your connection if they see you are streaming video.  This will cause buffering and other playback issues.  Using a high-quality VPN will eliminate this problem.  Get a 57% discount on IPVanish VPN Service while it lasts.  IPVanish is the #1 VPN on the planet.

The process to reset your device is simple.  But keep in mind that doing a Factory Reset will completely wipe your device.  You will need to reinstall your apps, your VPN and Kodi.  Only perform a reset if you are having issues with your Fire TV device.  If you are just having Kodi issues, you can reset Kodi to its default state instead of your entire device.

From the Fire TV Home Screen, scroll over to the right until you are on the SETTINGS page.  Then scroll down and to the right until you see My Fire TV and click on it.

Scroll down until you see Reset to Factory Defaults

You will see a warning and be asked to confirm that you want to reset your device. 


Your device will reboot and will come back up just like if it was new.  You will need to log back into your Amazon account and reinstall all your applications.
