If the seals are damaged, water will leak into motor section and cause GFI to trip and yet the pump will seem that it is running fine if plugged into a non-GFI receptacle

check to make sure your power has the right amp 15 to 20 amps. and then i would check the unloader and make sure its working, you may want to check your valves to make sure there not stuck.

Check your power cable for any hole and damage, that might be the problem
remove the 2 screw where the cable is connect on the pump, gently pull off the ruber from the cord and check if your 3 wire are wet ? and if any water can come out of the cable hole?
if yes you have to take most of the pump appart to make the stator and rotor get dry and also check for any black part on the stator, to make sure it not burn if you cant find any black spot on the part let it dry for a week and spray some air on the stator everyday and your problem will be fix,
At our big factory we use special oven to dry the part quicker
If you have no water that came out from the inside of the pump it has to be the power cable or your breaker the reason why the pump work fine when only the base is submerge is because the pump have less restriction (Water to push) so the engine work is very light compare when she is submerge and have to push so much water alll the way throught the hose.
I can help you if you need more info,

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
No, only a thermal overload. If the unit was hot and has had a chance to cool off it should start. If you have voltage to the motor and it will not even hum or buzz, you need a new motor. The short must have blown the winding open.
