I have no experience with it but, at first I'd make sure that it's correct Ampereage on the replaced relay that you put on and all connection at the relay are clean and tight.

Wild guess - Possibly the fan motor is slowly failing and sucking up a lot of extra amps. Otherwise a bad wire or connection somewhere as New Guy suggests.
