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!).

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.

You are wasting your time...the whole new pump is under $50 and no manufacturer is going to have an aftermarket parts program or repair manual for such an item. Once they fail you replace them.

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the pump. Unfortunately there is no reset or other means of restoring your pump to operating condition. If the unit is out of warranty there is no cost effective means to get parts or to have it repaired.
You may be interested in knowing they warranty the pumps for 3 years.
