DIY Hearing Aid Repairs
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.
