When Will Your Hearing Aid Need Professional Repair Service

Generally, a hearing aid can last 3 to 7 years, depending on its type and style. This does not mean that you will not experience any issues with your hearing aid until that time. A hearing aid can occasionally fail or have minor performance issues because of many reasons such as exposure to excess debris (ear wax), moisture or heat, etc.

If you have any issues with the performance of your hearing aids, you should start with checking for any battery issues or debris (ear wax) blockage in the ear mold or the receiver port.

  • Make sure there is a functioning battery in the battery compartment and that it’s positioned correctly. If there is any sign of corrosion on the battery, replacing it with a new battery should revive your hearing aid.
  • To confirm that the battery has power, either check it in a battery tester or do the following: Place the hearing aid in your hand and make a little chamber by cupping your hand around it. If your hearing aid squeals, then it has power, and most likely, it’s working. If it makes no sound, it would mean that either your battery is dead and it needs replacement, or there is debris in the ear-mold or in the receiver port, which then needs to be cleaned.
