Tj Keep blowing #8 fuse

2000 TJ 4 cyl.
Heater only.
Blowing #8 fuse (fuse for heater control, blend door actuator,& fan relay)
When I replace the fuse, the heater and fan will run for a while then after a few minutes the fuse will blow.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Check behind your control panel...

Fixing Fault in TJ's Wiring for AC Control

That might not be your problem but, you're overdue for that failure and it's an easy check.

Right on. I will check that out. Thanks! Although I will point out that while I was replacing the stereo, I pulled the panel and did a hands on and visual check of the control panel. I was looking for heat stress to the plastic or any type of visible failure. (at the time the heater wasn't working at all and the owner thought he changed the fuse out for a good one.) Silly me for not verifying .
I will definitely put this upgrade on the to do list as I like to know anything I ride in is safe.
Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
