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 aid(s). If you should experience an issue that needs repair, take the hearing aid(s) 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.
