The water heater gets quite a workout in most homes. Based on most manufacturer’s suggested service life, the life expectancy of a water heater is about 8 to 12 years. That will vary with the unit design, quality of installation and the level of maintenance your unit has received.
If your water heater is more than 10 years old, leaks around the base of the tank, and / or works erratically or not at all, it probably needs to be replaced. In any case, make sure that an electrical problem such as a blown fuse or tripped breaker is not the reason for the unit’s failure.
