Default Third Ninja Fan dies in 4.5 yrs

I have my Ninja cooler since 2010. I bought it then to reduce the noise of the system. The stock AMD cooler is very noisy.

A strange thing happens every 1.5 yrs or so: the fan just stops working, I didn't do anything with it: I didn't reconnect or turned the knob of the fan controller. It just died.

The first time was in early 2012 and I bought a new one myself. The second time was in july 2013 and I contacted Scythe support and I got a replacement (nice!). I found out that the fan died again. I contacted the support again and I'm offered a replacement without controller. This time I would have to pay, but that's not a problem. I simply have doubts about the fan in general.

I understand that some devices can malfunction after a while, but after 3 times something says to me that there is a quality problem with the fan or I'm doing something very wrong here. I have other 120mm fans in the case which never malfunctioned.

Has anyone an idea?
