Why isn't jet pump pumping?

Your suction line has an air leak, hence no suction , no prime. All fittings have to be perfectly tight and leakfree on intake side.

Power trips out when jets are switched on

I'm going on somewhat limited information here not knowing if the tub is newly installed or if this is a spa that has been working in the past and just started doing this. It would be helpful to know if this is a recently installed pump as well. That said here are a few things to check.
If it's a new install: Your electrician has more than likely wired the spa incorrectly. Be sure that the spa pack has 220V going into the pack and that the GFCI is wired correctly.
If it's an old spa with a new problem: A lot of times a bad heater element can cause a spa to trip the breaker. If you have a bad element the spa will operate normally for about a minute when you turn the power on, then trip the breaker as soon as the heater kicks in.
If it only trips the breaker when the pump is turned on to high speed, more than likely there is a problem with the wiring of the pump or the relay on the pump itself.

Have a sovereign hot springs spa purchased in 2000. When turning the jets on it kicks the breaker. Also, the inside control system is not working anymore. Could our friendly electrician do this easily,...

When spas turn on initially they run through a purge cycle. This when the pump runs for a few minutes to remove any air in the heating system so the heater does not dry fire.
If your system runs through the start up cycle just fine but kicks the breaker when the heater starts then the heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

My water pump when reaches 40psi clicks on and off contineously

Pull the pump and check for blockage holding the foot valve open allowing the pressure to leak past the impellor back in to the water table. Sand --rocks are sucked up during the pump operation and will hold the ball off the seat.

My pump when reaches 40 psi clicks on and off contineously

check for a slow leak like a toilet valve. leaking tap in the garden or it may be the non-return valve in the unit is not sealing off and allowing the pressure to leak back into the pump so causing it to cycle. Mostly it will require a new unit to fix.

Unloader valve releases a lot of air when compressor shuts off and will not let the motor kick in blows breaker

This is usually a problem with the check valve. The unloader valve on your pressure switch is designed to bleed the pressure off the head of the compressor. With a leaking check valve the pressure isn't relieved from the head and the pump can't turn causing the motor to overload and blow the breakers.

To troubleshoot your problem try the following:

Trace the 1/4" line that connects to the unloader back to the tank. You'll find a fitting there. Remove the lines and then the fitting. Sometimes cleaning that valve will alleviate the problem. If not you need to replace the check valve.

Hope that helps.
