So you are saying that it is tripping the 30amp. breaker.

Is it tripping right away when the motor is started or trips after the motor has run for awhile.


After running a while

Is there something hung up in the actual pump itself causing the motor to slowdown and trip? Maybe a bearing going bad and seizing the shaft?

I had the same issue with my pump motor( above ground)
Mine has a plug though and when it rained the gfci would trip.
water was getting in around the plug connection so I took some electrical tape and taped the plugs together.
No more tripping.
I would check the connections and look for an open spot.
It doesnt take a very big opening to let water seep in.

Check the full load amp rating of the motor, it might be on a label on the side of the motor. Check the running amps using an amp meter while the motor is runing. If you are well under 30 amps while the motor is running, use an ohm meter to check for shorts and ground faults on the motor and wiring.

Does the GFI ever trip?
