Hearing Aid Repairs

Older Man at Doctor

Age and use can take their toll on hearing aids, and while there’s always the option of replacing a hearing aid that has become damaged, sometimes it’s better to attempt some common hearing aid repairs first.

Common Hearing Aid Repairs

Depending on the issue you’re having, you may be able to troubleshoot or repair your hearing aid on your own. Here are a few common hearing aid fixes you can try right now:
· Replace the battery
· Remove and reinsert your hearing aid
· Clean your hearing aid
· Replace the wax filter
· Open and close the battery compartment
· Gently brush over the microphones
· On a BTE hearing aid, blow out any moisture bubbles in the tubing and remove any wax collected at the tip of the earmold.

Still no sound? Drop in to the office anytime between 9:30am and 4:30 pm to have your instrument thoroughly checked over and cleaned.

Sound Level Adjustments: If your hearing aids are working, but you feel a change in volume or sound levels may be needed, call us at 778-732-0169 to schedule an appointment for a sound level evaluation.

When Your Hearing Aid is Beyond Repair

Hearing aids have a life expectancy of 4 or 5 years. Like all electronic and mechanical devices, delicate components wear down. In addition, hearing levels and even the shape of the ear canal, change over time. An older hearing aid may no longer fit well or meet hearing requirements.

At Richmond Hearing Consultants our practitioners will identify the problem and recommend a solution for all makes and models of hearing aids. If you are having trouble with your hearing aids, call us at 778-732-0169 to schedule an appointment and we’d be more than happy to help you get your devices back to optimal working order.
