Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing aids are tiny computers for your ear and have small working parts. It is not uncommon over time for a hearing aid to need a repair. You may try to turn the hearing aid on in the morning and find that there is no sound or the battery door may come unhinged. These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. Every day wear and tear can take its toll on the hearing aids. If you should experience an issue that needs repair, take the hearing aids to your audiologist. They will be able to troubleshoot what is going on and determine a solution. Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others will need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your audiologist can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly.
If you purchased your hearing aids from our office and they are not working, call the office to set up an appointment to trouble shoot what is going on with your hearing aids. If you have hearing aids that were not purchased at our office, the hearing aids can be repaired for a fee. Most major manufacturers of hearing aids can be fixed in our office, so please call the office to see if the brand of hearing aid you have is one that can be serviced. Hearing aids come with a manufacturer warranty when purchased new. If your warranty has expired, it is still possible for the manufacturer to repair most hearing aids for a fee. Depending on the hearing aid manufacturer, this repair may come with a new six-month or twelve-month warranty. Your audiologist will analyze your hearing aids to determine what needs to be done and provide you with details when you take your hearing aid into the office.
