Hearing Aid Repair

Because hearing aids contain advanced-function technology fit into a very small casing, they may require repair from time to time. The technology can malfunction, you may be experiencing feedback, whistling, a looser fit, dislodging of the inner tubing, or be noticing holes or cracks in the hardware. Our hearing specialists are always here to help repair your hearing aids. Your ability to hear properly is of paramount importance to us.

To minimize the need for hearing aid repair, here are a few things you can do to keep your hearing aid functioning properly for as long as possible:

  • Clean your earsearwax is the most common reason hearing aids malfunction. Make sure to clean your ears regularly with a washcloth because earwax can creep into the little spaces of the hearing aid and impede proper function of the microphone
  • Clean your hearing aid – a soft, dry cloth will remove earwax, dust, and dirt from your hearing aid. Make sure to clean it on a regular basis
  • Keep your hearing aids dry – store your hearing aids in a protective container to prevent them from getting wet. Hearing aids dryers and dehumidifiers can be purchased if you think your hearing aids are at risk of being exposed to moisture

 

Troubleshooting Common Problems with Your Hearing Aid

  • Make sure your hearing aid is turned on
  • Adjust the volume
  • Monitor and check the battery
  • Monitor the integrity of the tubing in BTE (behind-the-ear) models
  • Monitor the casing – if you see any cracks, report it to your hearing specialist
