If you did not press a reset ( and even if you did) the motor is damaged and that is causing the circuit breaker to trip. You need to have the motor inspected to see if the damage is repairable or if you need a new motor. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to take care of that for you. The thermal overload has reset itself if after cooling down the motor is trying to start but trips the breaker.
To be certain it is the motor, disconnect the line leads and be sure they are insulated from ground and one another. Turn the breaker back on. It should stay closed which confirms it is the motor tripping it when connected.
If for some reason the breaker still trips, there is a problem with the electrical circuit feeding the pump.

According to our Emerson parts dealer, parts for that motor and the motor itself are obsolete. They could not provide a part number to search for or an equal part either. We can quote you a new BN34 if you wish to contact us through www.arrowpools.net.
