Question and Answers

Q:

Is a Converter Kit PP1512 needed for Craftsman Pump Model No. 390.252282 for shallow well? Model No. 390.252282

A:

According to your details, the pump is not building up enough pressure to fill the tank. Check your pump installation according to the guidelines in the owner's manual.  You should get more than 60 psi of water pressure out of that pump if it is installed and operating properly.

Q:

jet pump stops running after 30-60 minutes of operation. 390.252282

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Craftsman Pump model 390.252282. I am so sorry one of your jet pumps stops running after less than an hour of operation. I am sure you want to get this working properly again as quickly as possible. I will be happy to help you with this. I have included the link below for you to view the owner's manual online in case you don't have a copy. 
 
 
Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor may be overheating. Because the pump comes back on after the motor has shut off for a while, it sounds like the overload protector is actually doing it job, protecting the motor from damage. Since you have two identical pumps, a good way to test parts like the overload protector would be to switch the part on the pumps. If the problem follows the part, the part needs to be replaced. 
 
Possible issues that can cause the motor to overheat include faulty wiring, the voltage to the pump is too low or the pump is cycling too frequently. If the pump cycles too frequently, there are several possible causes. The issue could be there is no air cushion because the standard pressure tank is water logged. There could be a pipe leak. Faucets or valves could be open. The foot valve could be leaking. The pressure switch could need to be replaced or the air charge could be too low. The troubleshooting section of the manual will help you with steps to correct these possible problems. 
 
I hope this answers your question. If you need further assistance, please resubmit your question with additional details. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

I have a Craftsman pro water pump. It leaks down slowly. There are no leaks under the house. I put a new check valve in the pump. Can you help?

A:

I am assuming the pump works fine, pumps up to pressure and cycles off. After the pump reaches the cut off pressure, the pressure slowly drops in the storage tank with no water being used.

If my assumption is correct, you might have a leak in the foot valve that has the jet in it.

The second pipe from the pump goes into the well and recirculates the water through the nozzle venturi that is inside the foot valve. This is how the pump builds the pressure.

I think you need to pull the pipe from the well and check the foot valve assembly.
