The Customer Happiness Team might direct you to undergo these steps when troubleshooting some particularly difficult issues, or these steps may be advised in other support articles. Please don’t try this process unless you’ve been referred to it, as this is not the first troubleshooting step for many problems.

  1. Access the “Settings” menu of your Kinsa app through the ⚙️ icon on the home page.
  2. Tap on your paired thermometer. Note, your settings menu might look a little different than in this example.


  3. Tap on “Restore Thermometer”. Take screenshots of any messages it provides you with during the restore process, in order to relay them back to support as accurately as possible.
