How do you know when you need hearing aid repairs?
It’s not always easy to tell when your hearing aids might need to be repaired. Common issues might start small and worsen gradually, making them difficult to detect. In addition, many people who use hearing aids aren’t aware of the relatively simple fixes available for a wide variety of problems, like:
High-pitched whistling or howling
If your hearing aid emits a howling noise when you put it in, then the underlying issue may be that it’s simply not inserted correctly. Accumulated ear wax can inhibit the functionality of your hearing aid, and if you’re not wearing it how it’s meant to be worn, then it won’t function how it’s meant to function. If you aren’t sure how to insert your hearing aid correctly, give one of our hearing specialists a call and we’ll be happy to help.
If the sound your hearing aid emits is distorted, chances are that there’s an issue with the battery, or the battery contacts. Clean your battery and the battery surfaces with a dry cloth and make sure that the battery compartment is closed all the way. If this doesn’t work, you may just need a new battery.
If your hearing aids aren’t working at all, and you’re sure the issue isn’t the battery, they might be clogged. Usually, the clog is affecting the sound outlet or the microphone: clean both and change out your filters if necessary. If that doesn’t work, then call the Center for Audiology for further guidance.
