SOURCE: High speed spa pump shuts off
The motor may have a thermal cutoff if the motor draws too much current. Do you have a sufficient large gauge circuit supplying the motore? If not the actual voltage at the motor may drop, causing it to draw more current to make up for the loss of voltage, thereby tripping the motor's protective breaker. I assume the motor will start again after serveral minutes of cooling down.

Put a clamp ammeter at one of the electrical supply wire and take note of the running current reading (amperes) with the motorpump running. Compare this with the rated current of the motor. It must be lower or equal to the rated current. From your comment that it is very hot to touch, I assume that the running current reading is higher than the rated current. To lower the running current, install a service **** or flow control valve at the discharge line. Then, put back the clamp ammeter at one of the electrical supply line/wire. Start the pumpmotor and slowly close the service ****/flow control valve until your running current reading is 85% to 90% of the rated current (amperes). I can assure you that the motor temperature will be lower.
