Echo Dot Reset Button Location on Gen 1, 2, and 3 Dots

We detail here the Echo Dot reset button location on the Echo Dot gens 1, 2, and 3 models?  First, the location of the reset button depends on which Echo Dot.  Further, only the first generation Dot features a fully dedicated reset button.  The others either use button combinations to effect reset, or they have multi function buttons, for which reset is one.





First, the Gen 1 Echo Dot Reset Button Location

On the first generation Echo Dot, find the reset button on the under side (the bottom) of the unit.  The Amazon page  Reset Your Amazon Echo or Echo Dot (1st Generation) says to find this reset button at the speaker base.   See our post How to Reset Echo Dot 1st Generation to Factory Default for more details.

Next, the Gen 2 Echo Dot Reset Button

The second generation Echo Dot has no separate reset button.  Instead, to reset this speaker, you press and hold the Mic Off and Volume Down (-) buttons on the top of the unit at the same time.  See these in the following picture.  Also, see our How to Reset Echo Dot 2nd Gen to Factory Default for more details.

Finally, the Echo Dot Reset Button Location for the Gen 3 Echo Dot Speaker

Finally, on the 3rd generation Echo Dot, again, there is no separate reset button.  Instead, the Action button on the top of the unit also acts as the Reset button.   See this button location in the following picture.  Also, see our  Reset Echo Dot 3rd Generation to Factory Default Settings  post for more details.
