Or if the safety is working you may have bad bearings on your deck and that will also stall your motor, or something jammed in the blades.

Most likely it's the motor assembly. There is an internal switch that keeps the motor running until the wiper blades are in the "park" position. If the internal switch fails, the wiper will continue to run or will turn off wherever the blades are when you turn off the wipers. Either can happen when the wiper internal switch fails.

Make sure it is turning freely, and not binding. Spin the blades and listen for the noise of worn bearings. If it blows the fuse as soon as it comes on, it may be a defective motor or a short in the wiring. If it blows after running for awhile, the motor is overheating and needs replacing.
