    hi and welcome.....

    could be many things but most likely a trapped/chaffed wire is shorting to earth and blowing the fuse.

    could also be the actuator/motor has burnt out or the mechanism has jammed and is overloading the fuse.

    you need to get to the motor/actuator to check if it moves manually when pulled/pushed and the wiring to see if theres any obvious damage.

    I had this happen on our car, as said by pappajohn turned out to be actuator, a little lubrication carefully applied to moving joints cured the problem.

    Sorry forgot to say welcome
