Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Please provide me with the information on the motor nameplate? I need to know the motor HP, the Full Load Amps (FLA rating) and the connected voltage (120 or 240VAC)?

2) How many amps is the circuit breaker?

3) Is this a new pump or was it previously working OK prior to this problem?

Haven't heard back from you on my questions. I will opt out of the question and place it back to the open board. No need to reply back to me. You will be notified if another expert picks up the question.
