Make sure that there is no leaks traveling down the hoses or at the connections on the top. The tanks can leak, if you have the Stainless Steel tank the following information applies - Stainless Steel Tank: 3 years, with an extended service plan available when installed by an InSinkErator Pro Circle™ plumber. I you product is under warranty I believe that you can call the number that is printed on the tank and literature.

When you cut the pipe it has to be cut square or it will leak . Try recutting the end of the pipe and then reinserting it. If this doesn't work then the only thing you can do is replace the fitting.

Replace water heater if tank wall is leaking.
These things have short warranty period.
Stainless steel will theoretically last longer, but steel tank water heaters have replaceable anode rod to prevent rust-out.
Be sure to recycle the old metal.
