Hearing Aid Repairs
We repair nearly all makes and models of hearing aids.
Don’t delay when it comes to getting equipment back to its optimal condition. Hearing aids that are forced to operate in a lessened state will only impact how much you can get out of your devices.
How do hearing aids get broken?
Our In Office Lab
Sometimes all your hearing aid may need is a few minor repairs. We have special equipment that can clean hard to reach components. In many cases, we are able to repair your hearing aid damage in-house while you wait. Our audiologists have experience servicing most major hearing aid manufacturers. If we find your hearing aid requires more extensive repairs than we are able to provide, we will ship the hearing aid to the appropriate manufacturer for you.
Hearing aids are generally quite small. This means that all the pieces that come together to make them work are even smaller. With this being the case, it is not uncommon for a hearing aid to need repairs over time. Even if you take meticulous care of your hearing aid and follow all recommendations, a hearing aid could potentially stop working. However, this doesn’t mean you should immediately look towards buying a new one.
Common hearing aid issues are caused by maintenance issues created by ear wax and debris in the microphones.
Hearing Aid Warranty Service
Hearing aids purchased directly from us have a factory warranty and complimentary service for cleaning. If you purchased your hearing aid elsewhere we can still help you get your hearing aid repaired at the factory or in house. Often we can provide a loaner during repair if your hearing aid needs to be shipped to the manufacturer.
Hearing Aid Troubleshooting Tips
Hearing aids are a great way to improve your hearing, but they can also malfunction from time to time. If you’re experiencing problems with your hearing aid, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue.
Here are some common hearing aid malfunctions and how to fix them:
- No sound: This is the most common problem with hearing aids. If you’re not hearing anything, check to make sure that your hearing aid is turned on and that the batteries are inserted correctly. You may also need to clean your hearing aid to remove any earwax or debris that may be blocking the sound. If you have a filter or wax trap, replace it.
- Low volume: If the volume on your hearing aid is low, try turning it up. You may also need to adjust the program or settings on your hearing aid. If you’re still having trouble, contact your hearing care professional.
- Feedback: Feedback is a high-pitched squealing sound that can be caused by a number of things, including a bad battery, earwax buildup, or a problem with the hearing aid’s circuitry. If you’re experiencing feedback, try cleaning your hearing aid, or checking that the aid is fitting properly in your ear. If you’re still having trouble, contact your hearing care professional. There may be an earwax obstruction in your ear.
- Water damage: Hearing aids are not waterproof, so it’s important to avoid getting them wet. If your hearing aid gets wet, dry it immediately with a soft cloth. If you’re not sure how to dry your hearing aid, contact your hearing care professional.
- Hearing aid loss: If you lose your hearing aid, don’t panic! There are a few things you can do to try to find it. First, retrace your steps to see if you can find it where you last had it. If you have an app for your hearing aid on your smartphone, check to see if has a locator feature. Check with your provider to see if the aid has a loss coverage policy in place. If you’re still unable to find your hearing aid, you may need to purchase a new one.
