Due to hardware and software issues, Fire Stick might malfunction. This might even cause your device to restart again and again on its own. However, there are a few easy solutions if your Amazon Fire Stick keeps on restarting and this guide has mentioned it in detail.
Fix: Amazon Fire Stick keeps Restarting Issue
There are several possible causes for the Amazon Fire Stick restarting issue, this includes overheating, insufficient power supply, corrupted files, or outdated software. You can stop your Fire Stick from restarting again and again by following these workarounds:
1. Check the temperature
Touch the Fire Stick and see if it feels hot. If it does, unplug it from the power source and let it cool down for a few minutes. Then plug it back in and see if the issue persists. Also, you can try to move the Fire Stick away from any heat source or use an HDMI extender cable to create some distance between the device and the TV.
