Hearing Aid Repair and Maintenance
Hearing aids are comprised of tiny electrical components that may experience wear and tear over time. If this is the case, you’ll likely need to visit your hearing professional to have the problem assessed. Whether it’s simply due to aging or the units have been exposed to moisture, excessive wax, debris or physical damage, you’ll want your hearing specialist to evaluate the extent of repairs needed.
3 Reasons - Hearing Aids Fail
1. Wax - Earwax, or cerumen, is the #1 killer of hearing aids. The good news? Often times the hearing aids can be cleaned and they will come back to life. Occasionally, the damage caused by earwax makes repair necessary.
2. Moisture - Showers, sweat and humidity can all attack the electronic components of a hearing aids, resulting in damage and decreased performance.
3. Defect - Just like any other device with electronics, hearing aids can fail because of a manufacturer defect. Typically, this would be covered under your initial hearing aid warranty.
Hearing aid batteries typically last between 3-7 days, depending on factors like:
- The type and size of hearing device you have

- The technology level of the device
- The environment you live in
- The way you take care of the battery
