hearing aid repair

Even if you take excellent care of your hearing aids, they may need a professional to adjust them. A battery door may be loose, or the sound may need an adjustment. Maybe the hearing aids were exposed to moisture or were cracked. HearingLife is here to help.

When possible, we will repair your hearing aids onsite while you wait. In some cases, we can return them to the manufacturer, who has the tools and expertise to fix specialized issues.

Troubleshooting and information on hearing aid repair

If your device stops working, try these things before getting your hearing aid repaired:

  • Check the receiver and openings for wax residue
  • Ensure all pieces/tubing are connected correctly
  • See if anything is blocking the microphone
  • Inspect for cracks or visible damage
  • Make sure it is on and that the volume is loud enough for you to hear
  • Confirm the battery is charged and inserted correctly

If your hearing aid produces feedback:

  • Check the volume levels
  • Make sure it is inserted correctly
  • Confirm that the microphone is not obstructed

Still not working? The professionals at HearingLife can take a look and either perform hearing aid repairs in-house or send your devices to the manufacturer.
