Q:

switch set at 70/50, pump fails to build > 60 390251483 Craftsman Well jet pump

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your well jet pump will not build pressure.

First, make sure te pump is properly primed. A leak in the suction line could be causing the issue. Make sure the foot valve is below water level, but not clogged with mud or sand. A weak motor could also cause the issue. 
 
On page 9 of your Owner's Manual that gives you information on troubleshooting. If this information does not help, then you will need to contact a service technician.

While I'm no expert, I've have 30 years experience with shallow well jet pumps. Most of the time this is a suction side leak. If the pump is older this could happen at the shaft seal. If the pump is priming and pumping with no signs of air in the water, I'd look elsewhere. If the pump is priming and pumping water, but not building pressure there may be trash in the venturi/nozzle. This can happen from trash falling in the pump when priming or small particles getting past the well head screen. If the pump is running and building pressure, but not shutting off look for a water logged pressure tank or a faulty pressure switch.
