DIY Hearing Aid Repairs

Hearing aid repair in Tucson AZ
Hearing aid repairs can be costly. If you begin experiencing any issues, try some home remedies before taking your hearing aid in to be serviced.

  • Check to make sure the hearing aid is on and the volume is up. It is easier than you would think to accidentally change these settings.
  • Check the battery. The batteries used in hearing aids do not drain like normal mercury batteries. Hearing aid batteries will go from full charge to completely dead in an instant.
  • Inspect the tubing (if you use a BTE model), as it can become damaged from normal use.
  • Clean the hearing aid using a dry cloth. Remove any earwax that has become trapped.

If you have tried all these home repairs and your hearing aid continues to have trouble, contact us at (520) 399-7630 to schedule an appointment.

While Arizona Hearing Specialists will do everything we can to prevent you from having to buy a whole new device, sometimes hearing aids cannot be fixed. If your hearing aid is more than five years old, is visibly damaged (such as having a large crack from being stepped on) or has already been repaired numerous times, the hearing aid is probably beyond repair.
