No, the series has no known problems, other than normal hard drive weaknesses.
Please run Seatools tests on the drives.
Also, check your power supply to make sure it provides enough wattage.

the main point was. the harddrive is broken. there is a 28% failure rate on those and other Seagate harddrives. A 28% or worse failure rate for them is normal these days. change it to something else if you can.
there are big issues with those drives which are not "normal harddrive problems". lookup sd15 thailand to get a starting point what to search for.
