Our hot water heater stopped working. It's from the 90's, so its very old. The fact that it lasted this long makes me want to keep it longer since things built these days aren't built to last. However, I'm wondering if its worth trying to fix, or if its made it so long past its life expectancy that I shouldn't bother. With it being an 80 gallon, I know its going to be expensive to replace, so if it would be worth troubleshooting and fixing (or if its even possible), please let me know and give advice on what I should check.

I'm not sure exactly what the problem is other than it's not heating the water anymore. I have no experience with but experience with hot water heaters.. Are there some basic things I could troubleshoot to try to figure out the problem?

Replace it.
Do you need such a big tank? Can you get by with a 50 gal tank?
If you are considering moving, a new water heater will close the deal...
