I was told this at the shop. Its due to the cheap/thin plastics that are used to make things like the fan. I'm really hoping that the fan had a chip or a flaw in it that caused this and not something else like the water pump. (Which I also JUST had replaced 5 months ago). I'll keep everyone up to date on the happenings. Thanks all for the speedy responses!!
You MIGHT, if you are very lucky, get a new fan under warranty for the original being faulty. But I sincerely doubt you will on the radiator or anything else.
