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.

There is a problem connecting to the amazon alexa service. You should check if it is connected to wifi, and if so, if the wifi is connected to the internet.
