Wayne Dalton iDrive keep blowing fuses

I have a Wayne Dalton iDrive and after about 2 years of using it (was installed in the home we bought) it started blowing fuses. After replacing the fuse for the first time it worked fine for a couple of months and blew again, few weeks later it blew again, seems random, each fuse works for a few weeks or months and goes out. Looks like there is a more serious issue. Any Ideas?

Couple of notes, the board says the fuse should be 4A time delay although the very first one the blew was 5A and I've used 5A because my local home depot and other stores I check never had time delay 4A, now I found one on Amazon and waiting to try it out but to my limited knowledge it should not be the cause for the frequent fuse blowing, if anything 5A should make it less frequent but more risky for the opener, correct?

The board was a bit dirty and oily, so I just cleaned it with a dedicated cleaner, will see if it helps.

I believe what you are saying is correct. My guess is that maybe the garage door is not quite balanced. And when it require too much torque on the idrive, it blows the fuse. The instruction manual explains how to test if the door is balanced.
