Assuming that this is an electric, it could be a faulty element, thermostat, or dip tube.
If it was a faulty breaker, it would have no power at all. The breaker would keep tripping.
Do a Search above for all kinds of info on troubleshooting and repairing Water Heater elements and tstats.
Good Luck!

Less then 1 year on a new water heater, this is under a warranty, contact the installer or the manufracture of the heater.
