Hearing Aid Repairs
While we will do our best to help you keep your hearing aids clean and functioning for years to come, eventually your hearing aid will get old and wear out, or be accidentally damaged. If your hearing aid stops working, here are some troubleshooting steps you can do on your own to see if you can fix it:
- Replace the battery (make sure it is in the right direction)
- Remove & reinsert your hearing aid
- Clean your hearing aid (it may be plugged)
- Replace the wax filter
- Open and close the battery compartment
- Check your input settings
If you are still having trouble, please call our office at 801-489-7948 to schedule an evaluation and discuss further repair options.
How Much Do Hearing Aid Repairs Cost?
Hearing aid repair costs depend on several factors: 1) Whether or not the hearing aid is still under warranty, 2) The extent of the damage to the hearing aid, and 3) The cost of replacement parts for your hearing aid.
If you purchased your hearing aid from Young Hearing and it is still under warranty, your hearing aid repair costs will be small–or even free. Out of warranty repairs or older hearing aids that require substantial repair may cost more. Cracked cases on custom molded devices can be expensive to replace, but in some circumstances these can be repaird.
When Your Hearing Aid is Beyond Repair
In the case that your hearing aid has accrued enough damage, it’s usually better to replace the hearing aid with a new model. It can be expensive to keep making repairs. If one or more of the following situations applies to your device, you may want to consider replacing it with new technology.
- Your hearing aid is 5+ years old
- The damage is visible–and looks extensive
- Your hearing aid has been repaired several times in the past
