As an owner of Jeep Cherokees both older and newer than your model, the following is only a guess.
For the older units, the fuel block is located under the left side of the instrument panel. Mid 90s units had the fuse block located in the right side kick panel, behind a cover. Late 90s had the fuse block located in the right end of the instrument panel under a cover.
A blown fuse is easy to identify through the clear plastic body. Also, the fuses can be checked with a test light. If replacement is necessary, BE SURE TO REPLACE WITH THE SAME AMPERAGE (i.e. use the same color as the blown fuse for a replacement).
Repairing an electric window often requires specialized tools. However, you can check the fuse(s) as you suggested (there may be one for all windows or separate fuses for each door motor), the actuating switches for broken/loose wires, and you can remove the door panel(s) to check the motor wires to see if they are loose or damaged.
Check to see if the affected window fails to respond to only the switch on the driver's door or the switch on the affected door itself. This may help narrow down the search
Just some general ideas which may be helpful.

My power window interior door lights quit lighting up could the bulbs be blown


If the power window itself still work fine, and the illumination on the driver's side door lock still work, then the LEDs behind the switch are the issue ( usually bad solder joints ).
If you are talking about all doors other than the driver's side, do you have the window lock on ? The lights on the switch turn off when the driver's side window lock is enabled.

since your other power windows are working and if the other interior accessories are working fine I would suggest having the power window motor actuator checked and replaced if found to be defective.

2000 Buick LeSabre where power locks, seats, windows quit working


If all power devices stopped at the same time you may have a bad fuse link. Since it is rare for all the fuses blowing at once and you already checked them. Start at your fuse links before assuming something expensive.

Power windows do not work. fuse is fine


If all of the windows do not work and the fuse is fine, the problem is either the window switch on the drivers door or the wire is bad that provides power. Remove the door panel and meter the switch, if you get power to the switch but not through the switch the problem is the switch. If you are not getting power to the switch you know you have a wiring problem.

Pass. front window won't move.


Mike,
I would check the power first to the motor.
IF the power to the motor is good. Then safe to say the motor/ regulator assembly should be changed.

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.
