Sorry, I'd like to clear up the confusion. Chieffan is correct, they're quite common. KennyP reference the picture of the three relays, the two on the right side of that picture are wired this way. Hope that helps and this picture. You're making me practice my drawing skills, and that's a good thing.image.jpg

There are a Bizillon types of relays, Here is how this one would be wired. PS Also looks like my Craftsman OPR Relay.

Wow, never knew those were made in Germany!

I know just enough about wiring to get lost! Just give me a good old switch any time!

A regular switch will work fine as long as it and the wire is rated properly, and the device's motor is functioning properly. Many electric sleeve / deck lifts are wired directly to a switch. OP stated wires get hot. A relay won't solve that, I would lean towards having the sprayer motor checked for excessive current draw, and/or correct wire (and fuse) size. Don't want to burn up a good GT by a bad sprayer.

I would have hooked my inductive amp clamp on and known the amp draw in seconds, works for me, but doesn't help a beginner. Sometimes it takes a lot of words to describe what you take for granted and sometimes forget to include all the steps. Let's go back to the beginning. Do you think it was sold on Craigslist because the owner was having problems with the pump motor?

  A relay is nothing more than a remotely operated switch. If a switch does not work an identically rated relay in the same place and the same circuit will do no better. Don
