Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing aids have small working parts, and 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. A battery door may come unhinged, a microphone may get wet from sweat, a receiver (speaker) can get plugged with cerumen. These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. If you should experience an issue that needs repair, take the hearing aid(s) to your hearing care professional. They are equipped to diagnose broken hearing aids. 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 hearing professional can help determine what kind of a repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly. At Hear for Life Audiology we strive to keep you hearing your best and typically can provide a loaner hearing aid for you during the repair time so you're not without hearing.
If you are a current patient and have hearing aids that were not fit in our office, we are happy to repair your hearing aids. We are service all major manufacturers of hearing aids. Hearing aids come with a warranty when purchased new that will cover an out of office repair by the manufacturer. If your warranty has expired, it is still possible to repair most hearing aids with a small fee depending on the repair need. An out of warranty repair conducted by a manufacturer will come with a new warranty guaranteeing the repair. Your hearing professional will provide you with details of the problem, what needs to be done for the repair, and of any cost associated with the repair before any work is performed when you bring your hearing aid into the office.
