Introduction

You can reset a C by GE Sol Lamp to its factory default state if it's no longer working as intended and you've exhausted all troubleshooting options, or if you plan on selling it or giving it away. This guide will take you through that process.
Before You Begin:

Resetting a C by GE Sol Lamp to its factory default state will unpair all your C by GE devices paired with it. You will need to reset those devices too and add them back into the C by GE app.
