HDDs are assembled in a clean room (How it's made - Western Digital Hard Disk Drives - YouTube), because even dust particles can cause damage to the platters or R/W heads. There is no guarantee that the "renewal" work was performed to the same standard.

Note that some HDD manufacturers will sell refurbished drives. These are typically repaired drives that have been tested by the manufacturer to meet the same standards as new drives, and are typically sold at a significant discount. Going to Western Digital's website, a MyCloud Home 8TB lists for US $299, while a refurbished device lists for US $199.

Personally, given the relatively low price/TB of new HDDs, I would not risk my data on a drive that has already failed once.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
