Can you have the fan motor ohmed out to see if its shorted out or "open"? If there is a loose wire anywhere in the cicuit..at the fan, the switch, terminal block, loose fuse at the fuse block, pinched wire, etc. The voltage to the motor will be decreased. If there is less volts at the motor, the amp draw will be higher. Less volts=more amps. If the motor is drawing higher than the rated amps ( on the motor tag) it will burn out in a short time.
