Hearing aids have tiny electrical components that may experience wear and tear over time. If this is the case, you’ll need to visit our office to have the problem assessed. Whether it’s simply due to aging or the units have been exposed to moisture, excessive wax, debris or physical damage, call us to have the problem assessed.
Common Hearing Aid Issues
One morning you may try to turn the hearing aid on and the battery door may not operate, the aid does not charge, or there is no sound. This can happen even when you properly care for the hearing aids.
We are equipped to diagnose broken hearing aids. We can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly. Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in our office in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair.
Hearing Aid Repairs
If you are a current patient and have hearing aids that were not fit in our office, we are happy to try to repair your hearing aids. We are able to service most major manufacturers of hearing aids and can tell you if yours is a brand we service. Hearing aids come with a warranty when purchased new. If your warranty has expired, it is still possible to repair most hearing aids with a small fee. Depending on the hearing aid manufacturer, this repair may come with a new six month-long warranty. Your Hearing Instrument Specialist will provide you with details when you take your hearing aid into the office.
Hearing Aid Maintenance
An easy way to keep your hearing aids in good working order is by properly caring for and maintaining the devices. This means cleaning them daily with an alcohol wipe to remove wax and examining them periodically for any scratches, cracks or damages. Call us if you discover any kind of malfunction or damage to your devices.
