Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be glad to assist you. Your description would indicate a bad connection has failed. It may be where the breaker attaches to the buss, a bad wire connection in the circuit or in the pump wiring compartment. You'll need to look for signs of arcing or melted insulation.
The first thing to check is the breaker. Pull it out and inspect the jaws for signs of arcing or corrosion.
