It's probably overheating. If the pump is starting to fail, the motor will work harder to raise the same amount of water pressure. That will cause the internal thermal switch to trip, turning off the motor until it cools. If you're certain that the pressure switch is functioning properly, about the only thing left would be the pump motor.
