Alexa can't set alarm for me. Says is a problem when I ask.
In past could set alarm by asking Alexa to set alarm for a time specific. Now she says alarm set...then few seconds later say problem setting same. Help, thanks and Happy New Year.

ANSWERS:

"I had the same issue. My Echo Dot was connected to wifi and would interact and tell me the temperature.

Every time I tried to set an alarm it would take the command, and then about 5 seconds later respond and say it had a problem setting the alarm.

After reading this post I decided to try power cycling it. That seems to have worked - it took the command. It also is showing up in my iPad Alexa app.

Problem solved."
Sometimes Alexa enabled device like mobile app does not support alarms or timers.
Open the Alexa app. On the side menu, go to reminders and alarms, click the alarm tab and push the button to the on position
Just go to settings and choose factory reset option.
