I would look for a thermal overload protection, though 30 seconds is pretty fast to trip one. Also, check for a pressure sensor that shuts the pump off to prevent deadheading. It could be defective.

Also check the breakers supplying the electrical power to the motor.
I have had similar issues where a pump operates for a limited time then nothing.
Ended up on three separate occasions breakers that were "loose" causing intermittent contact with the power panel.
I surmise the homeowner was a bit heavy handed opening/closing the breaker and caused it loosen up.
If this and/or the motor winding isn't it - fill up the blinker fluid then wire in a pigtail.
