Hearing Aid Repairs

The hearing aids of today are sophisticated devices capable of incredible feats, but as with any type of device, they are bound to malfunction eventually. Hearing aids are exposed to a wide array of environments and conditions on a daily basis including moisture, heat, dirt and earwax, all of which can cause problems for your device’s electronic components often requiring some form of repair.

At Kenwood Hearing Center, we offer in-office hearing aid repair services for nearly all makes and models. Our staff of highly trained hearing aid specialists understand how important it is to have your device up and running, and we pride ourselves in a fast and focused turnaround.

Note: If a repair is out of our scope of ability within our office, we may send your hearing aids back to the manufacturer.

How Much Do Hearing Aid Repairs Cost?

Hearing aid repair costs can vary depending on several factors including:

  • Whether or not the hearing aid is still under warranty
  • The extent of damage to the hearing aid
  • The cost of replacement parts for your hearing aid

Regular hearing aid care and maintenance can help prevent wear and tear, extend the life of your technology, and keep you hearing clearly. If you are a hearing aid user, we recommend that you take your hearing aid device to a local audiologist for periodic cleanings and checkups to ensure that your device will continue working optimally.

In spite of these efforts, you may occasionally still experience issues with your device. Before taking your hearing aids in for repairs, there are several troubleshooting tips you should try to see if you can get your device working normally again.

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
  • Check your input settings

You can visit oticon.com and learn more about how to troubleshoot common problems with your hearing aid.

In some cases, it may be time to replace or upgrade your hearing aid, especially if one or more of the following is true:

  • Your hearing aid is five or more years old. Hearing aids have a life expectancy of  roughly five years. If you’ve owned your hearing aid that long and are experiencing problems, it may be time to retire your device.
  • The damage is visible and looks extensive. If your hearing aid has been stepped on, smashed, or damaged in a way that seems unfixable, it may actually be unfixable.
  • Your hearing aid instrument has been repaired several times in the past. It may be better in the long run to replace it. While a new hearing aid may cost more upfront, it can more than balance out the cost and annoyance of regular repair.
