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.

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
