Hearing Aid Repair

We Take the Worry Out of Repairs

With advanced digital technology, modern hearing aids are basically a miniature computer. They are exposed to some degree or another to the outside world. Rain, snow, or sweat from a good workout can take a toll on hearing aid equipment.

If you are noticing a problem with your hearing aid, call and make an appointment. Our staff is trained to perform minor repairs or can send it out to the manufacturer if it cannot be repaired by us.

Call 269.343.2601 and make an appointment to have your hearing aids inspected.


Maintenance and Best Practices

Open the battery door at night to extend the life of the battery.

Hearing aids are usually color coded red for the right ear and blue for the left ear.

Batteries can be harmful if swallowed. In the event a battery is swallowed, seek prompt medical attention at the nearest emergency center, or call the National Button Battery Ingestion Hotline at 202.625.3333.

Clean your hearing aid daily with a dry tissue; we suggest cleaning tools designed for hearing aids.

Keep your hearing aid safe, and out of reach of dogs, cats, or small children. Store the hearing aid in the case provided whenever you are not wearing it.

Do not drop the hearing aid or get it wet.

Do not spray on hairspray when hearing aid is in your ear.

Do not expose your hearing aid to extreme temperatures.

Do not wear your hearing aid around very loud sounds. Wear hearing protection when you are in hazardous noise levels.



If you are having trouble with your device, there are a variety of things you can do to correct the problem.
