hot tub pump tripping breaker

4 hp pump tripping the breaker on the panel inside the tub. Works for a minute then kicks off- resets easily, but licks off again - first time with this problem - what to check for?

Has this same pump worked on this same circuit for years and years and years, and then suddenly started causing this trouble? And nothing else changed?

If all this is true, then maybe you need a new pump. But I might try a new breaker first since that will be cheaper.
