GFI devices are prone to degrade over time. Also, when used outdoors there are additional moisture issues that may cause sufficient current leakage to trip the breaker.
I had a similar problem this Spring. I was using a 20 amp GFI "master" outlet that protected two additional outlets 'downstream' of it (wired to the 'load' terminals on the GFI outlet- I'd have the check the doc. to see what terminology was used here). The pump was plugged into one of the downstream outlets.
Replacing the GFI seemed to solve the problem. I did ante up $20 for an 'outdoor' model of the 20 amp GFI unit, several bucks more than the standard 'indoor' unit - have no ideal if that represented additional value or not.
Note also, that this is the third such pump I have used for my pool cover. The other two failed to come on at all after about a year's use. The mfg replaced them under warranty (I may have had to send back the old pump - I forget!).

SOURCE: broken garden hose adaptor
We have the same pump and problems. I have attempted a few fixes with PVC sealant and hose clamps to the current adaptor, however the adapter is still continuing to crack. The adapter is removable- carefully so as to not damage the small eyelet it attaches to, (or in our case, it came off on it's own) and can be replaced by any adapter that fits- they can be found all over at lowes or home depot. I am personally going to try using a broken hose and clamping it directly to the eyelet. This is not a good reason to buy a new pump- they fix too easy!

Hello. There are several possible issues here which are all fairly easy to investigate. Begin by bringing your pump, cord and hose into a warm space for 24 hours to thaw everything out, warm it up and dry it out. Then try it. If it works, you know you have one of the problems described below:
1. Sometimes a circuit breaker wears out and needs to be replaced. Try your pump on a different circuit, insuring that you are using a different circuit breaker. IF it works there, the solution is to replace that worn circuit breaker. 2. Check the impeller and remove any clog, blockage, debris or residue. 3. The 24 foot cord on your pump might have a cut, or a scrape on it. If it does, water is getting into the insulation and causing the circuit breaker to kick. Check your cord thoroughly and if you do have a break in it replace the cord or repair it with a waterproof repair. 4. Your pump motor may be worn or faulty or have a water intrusion. In that case the only fix is to replace the pump. 5. The drain hose could be frozen. If it is, that blockage could cause the breaker to kick. Always ensure that the hose runs consistently downhill.

You are probally just getting an air lock and can fix this by taking the hose off till it's under water or hold it upside down in water till it starts. If you hold the cord while it's in the water an just make sure it's taught you should be able to feel the vibration through the cord to tell if the pump is indeed running while under water.
If this does not help you may have to take the bottom end apart and check the impeller for clogs.
I hope this helps and good luck.
