Signs Your Hearing Aids Need To Be Repaired
Hearing aid technology has been developed to include protective features which prevent the device from being damaged through everyday wear and tear. Unfortunately, there are still several ways in which an aid can break down, become faulty or suffer physical damage. These include:
- Damaged tubing
- Ear mould blockages
- Open battery compartment
- Dirty or corroded battery contacts
- Clogged sound outlet
- Blocked microphone opening
- Broken faceplate
If you experience the following while using your hearing aid device, it is possible that it is damaged and in need of repair. These signs include:
- A howling or whistling sound
- A distorted or ‘fuzzy’ sound
- No sound
- Volume doesn’t stay fixed
- Ear moulds consistently fall out
- Sound is weak, especially during phone calls
Frequently Asked Questions
My hearing aids are not working well, are they still safe to wear?
In general, if your hearing aids are not working as intended or are causing you discomfort when worn, you should refrain from wearing them until they are professionally repaired. This is because poorly programmed hearing aids can potentially damage your ears and hearing further if not properly calibrated. If you are experiencing hearing difficulties, it's best to consult a qualified audiologist who can assess your hearing and provide appropriate recommendations for your specific needs.
How long do hearing aid repairs take?
Our front of house staff are trained in a variety of hearing aid repairs. In some cases repairs may take only a few minutes. It may simply be a case of exchanging a faulty receiver for example. For more extensive repairs your hearing aids may need to be sent to the specific eastern states manufacturer. These repairs typically take around 10 business days.
Repairs may also need to be done by the manufacturer due to the requirements of the product warranty, so the hearing aid device will need to be sent over to that manufacturer's or hearing aid brand location.
