Only thing you can do is find the short. Find out everything on the circuit and unplug componets one at a time until the fuse doesnt blow

I suspect the clutch coil on the compressor, sometimes they overheat and start a slow meltdowm process, everything will be fine until the load comes on then they short out and there goes you fuse, so check that first.
