Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
Often with external hard drives, as two years go by, the external powersupply of the external case tends to wear out and not provide the required voltage or constant power required by the hard drive(s) and its controller.
If possible I would give a try to another powersupply and see if it issue is solved.
The hard drives itself last longer than 2 years, the control board(s) are quite simple and should last longer than that as well, as for overheating, probably not, unless the air coming out is Hot.
