Hearing aid repair in Tarporley: how to solve common problems
My hearing aids don't seem to be working
If your hearing aids aren't making sounds, you can check the following:
- Check if there's ear wax blocking the microphone opening or sound outlet.
- Make sure the hearing aid battery door is closed and that the device is turned on. Check if the battery is inserted properly.
- Try to turn up the volume – either on the hearing aid itself or using a remote control.
- Switch between the different programs (if your hearing aid has different programs). Press the button to change settings and listen for a few minutes to see if that makes a difference.
- Try replacing your battery. You can test the battery to see if you should replace it.
- If none of the above helps, your hearing aid may be damaged. Please call us for further assistance on troubleshooting and hearing aid repair.

Troubleshooting common hearing aid issues
- Check to ensure the hearing aid is turned on: This seems simple, but check anyway, especially if you are still getting used to wearing and operating your hearing aids.
- Turn up the volume: Make sure the volume control is at the appropriate level and wasn’t accidentally turned down or altered.
- Check the battery: If you have disposable batteries, make sure your batteries are correctly positioned in the hearing aids. Test your batteries or try fresh ones to make sure the problem isn't with the batteries.
- If a BTE (behind-the-ear) model, inspect the tubing: BTE tubing can sometimes become damaged or worn over time. If hearing aid tubing shows any signs of wear and tear or breakage, your hearing healthcare professional can fix it quickly and easily in their office.
