You should put 'locktite' on the male thread and screw it in all the way and lock it there. That is how it works ,the spring keeps the valve at the bottom closed during high pressure operation. When the gun is released the part with the o-ring is forced down resulting in the valve opening and then the pressure is by-passed.Those dont normally give trouble. Look for a blocked nozzle or a restriction somewhere in your high pressure hose.

Derek, Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
I just now happened across your post and note it is 3 months old. Hopefully you already have the problem solved.
If not.. looking at the pump history of having the un-loader valve replaced it sure seems that the current un-loader valve is sticking. When an un-loader valve is removed the internal housing is sanded smooth and everything about the un-loader valve is coated with Lubriplate #105 White Grease. I get the feeling that who ever did the un-loader valve repair failed to sand / clean the housing and use White Grease for the final assembly.
You should remove the valve... Sand the housing and get some Lubriplate #105 white grease (auto parts store) in a tube. Lubricate it liberally and reassemble it. If should work fine after that.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
