If I understand you correct;

a. The pump does run
b. When you run the pump it kicks a breaker (on the pump?)

Well, here are a couple things to check. I like to test the pump with a battery and a couple cables, bypassing the switch. This test will confirm that the pump works - it is then one of two things, the wiring or the breaker (either may be corrosion and too much resistance). I really suspect wire corrosion or that the breaker is tired.
