Where to have your hearing aid repaired is a question many hearing aid users will have to ask themselves sooner or later.
Hearing aids contain small discreet electronic parts. Over time, it is not uncommon for all hearing aids to need to be professionally repaired. They are subjected to moisture, dust, dirt, earwax, debris, physical abuse and mishandling. At some point in time, all hearing aids will require repair. Where you go for hearing aid service is important.
As a hearing aid user, it is important that you understand that it is in the best interest of traditional hearing aid dealers to repeatedly sell you new products. Why? That’s how they make their living. Many times these offices try to deter their customers from repairing their hearing aids and instead pressure them to buy new ones. This attitude is reflected by many local providers who claim that a hearing aid can’t be repaired after a specified period of time, such as 3 or 5 years.
All hearing aids can usually be repaired, no matter the age.

Common Reasons Hearing Aids Fail
- Earwax (cerumen) is the #1 reason hearing aids fail. The good news? Often, hearing aids can be cleaned and they will start working again. Earwax in the receiver (speaker) is the number one issue we repair hearing aids at HearSource.
- Moisture – Sweat and humidity can all attack the electronic components of hearing aids.
- Dirt and Debris in the microphones, battery compartment or receiver (speaker).
Hearing Aid Troubleshooting
You might be able to troubleshoot your hearing aids using a few of these quick tips:
It is always best to start with the simple things first.
- Replace the hearing aid battery to see if that takes care of the problem
- Check the date on your hearing aid batteries. Make sure the hearing aid batteries are not out of date
- Clean the sound outlet (the hole or tube where the sound comes out that goes into your ear canal)
- Brush/clean the microphones with a soft brush
- If you have a thin tube type hearing aid, remove the thin tube from the aid and push the cleaning tool thru the thin tube
- Replace the wax filter/wax guard (if applicable)

My type of hearing loss is called Sensorineural hearing loss, meaning that my inner ear hair cells or nerves have become less effetive. My hearing loss was caused by a lifetime of exposure to loud noises. When I was young, I raced motorcycles and worked weekends at a local drag race track. As I got older I joined the Army and after that, a law enforcement career. I call this exposure to loud sounds… MY LIFE.
I have personally worn hearing aids for 13 years. In that amount of time, I have worn four different sets of hearing aids from four different hearing aid manufacturers. I live a very active lifestyle. I am the kind of person that always wants the latest and greatest hearing aid technology that I can get.
Joining the world of better hearing and getting a new set of hearing aids is not like getting a new pair of glasses for eyesight correction. Generally, when I get new glasses, instantly everything is clear and in-focus. Getting a new set of hearing aids requires a bit more time, patience and understanding.
I was told along time ago that we don’t hear with our ears, but we hear with our brains. Our ears are nothing more than an energy conversion device. Our outer ears gather up sound (acoustic energy) and directs it to the eardrum. At the eardrum this acoustic energy strikes the eardrum and is changed into mechanical or moving energy. Attached to the other side of our eardrum is a string of small bones called the ossicular chain. The mechanical energy is transmitted through the ossicular chain to the inner ear. The inner ear is a fluid filled organ called the Cochlea. At the inner, mechanical energy is transformed into hydraulic energy. As the ossiculer chain vibrates against the fluid filled inner ear it creates small waves. Floating in the inner ear are little nerves or hair cells called stereocilia. As the waves move back and forth in the inner ear, the stereocilia move also, similar to waves in a pond moving tall grass. As the sterocilia move back and forth they generate small electrical impulses that pass though a nerve and are sent to the brain.
My hearing loss (and most others) is because my stereocilia has become less effective, due to my life of exposure to noise. This type of hearing loss is called Sensorineural hearing loss.
