To be sure, make sure you are using fuses rated for up to 15 amp, and take care to get the fuse nicely crimped and/or soldered to the wire connections. (A bad connection or an underrated fuse might heat up enough to blow based on the current.)
On further inspection, the crimped area on one end of the new thermal fuse was not crimped well at all, but I can't imagine that I've made that mistake every time.
