W126 #5 A/C fuse blowing

This post might be right on target (or thereabouts). Yesterday while driving my '86 420SEL at about 65mph the A/C blower quit. I saw the fuse was blown and replaced it with the same (#8 white ceramic). Blew again. Replaced it. Fuse only blows when A/C is on. Running blower w/o A/C does not trip it. Would a failed or failing compressor do this? I'm asking 'cause it doesn't seem so and I'm just waiting for the shop to say the standard "you need a new compressor" when it seems to me its something else electrical. Thanks for your help!
