Thumbs down Pump Tripped Breaker

About a week a ago I turned the water on, no water.Check the breaker it was not tripped but, I tripped myself then pump came back on. Now it happens everyday no matter how little water I use.
First- changed out breaker with another one-Still doing the same.
Filled the points.
Still tripping.
What is wrong?

Turn the breaker off and check out the pressure switch for loose, burned or corroded wire connections.
If it's not a problem with the pressure switch electrical, it may be in the pump motor.
Good luck!
