Main radiator fan blown fuse x3

My main radiator has blown a fuse 3 times in the last year. And this is after I replaced the fan and the resistor a while back.

Thoughts?

looked into the radiator blower electrical, found there's two circuits. one for the left and the other for the right radiators.
I hate "swapping", but might you swap out the fan and resistors (relays) from the right to the left?
if the same side "blows its fuse" then most likely a loose connection.
(motor being a power device, it will suck as much current to run. if the wiring developed an additional resistance, the motor sees less voltage and therefore demand higher current)
