I use a CamSpray 1500A
It can be one of two things, either the valves in the pump or the unloader on the pump is having an issue. The first thing I would check is the unloader. If you look on your machine the big black handle that you screw up and down to regulate the pressure is where your unloader is located. I don't have the model number off the pump so I can't really walk you through repairing it, if you could get the model off the pump I will be able to give you a better idea on what to look for.
If this is not your issue it is going to be the valves in the pump that need to be replaced, for this I would also need to know the model number of the pump in order to give you some direction.

My makita plunge saw is very stiff and does not return to starting position.
This is how to solve the stiff Makita plunge saw easily!!!
I've just carried out the following steps and it's like a new saw.
Clear a table top and grab the following tools:
Philips screw driver
4mm allen key
grease- i used silicone grease
1. Take the base off the saw by removing the 4 x obvious screws.
2. If you look at the saw, you'll see that is pivots on a single pin at the rear. You'll also notice that there is a 4mm allen screw driven into that pin.
3. Remove the 4mm allen screw.
4. Fill the screw hole with grease and drive the 4mm allen screw back in (it'll force grease along the pin internally). Do this 3 or 4 times.
5. Work the mechanism back and forth as if you're plunging the saw- you'll notice that it becomes so much more easy to move.
6. Wipe away the black dirty grease that you have forced out of the pin. Reinsert the 4mm allen screw and tighten
7. refix the base and spring.
8. Job done.
This actually bugged me for ages until i finally decided to have a look and see what the issue was.

Miele retractable power cord. How is the spring wound?
Retractable things - hoses and cables and even the mower recoil starter rope are invariably powered by a clockspring.
One end is anchored to the stationary casing and usually the centre is anchored to the rotating part. The spring is pretensioned by an amount sufficient to retract the hose, rope or cable all the way and then pulling out the rope, etc. will further tension the spring. The spring end is usually the part that breaks or the anchor.
The spring should be treated with respect as it is usually a great deal longer than expected and should you dismantle a troublesome unit it is very important to keep a firm hold on it because if they are allowed to unravel it is violent and there is a couple of sharp ends...
When a retractable unit ages it often becomes sluggish and it usually helps to wash and dry the spring and lubricate with a few drops of light machine oil or some graphite dust.

My troybilt hydrostatic riding mower blows the fuse the instant the battery terminals are connected. I know it's a short but where should I look first?
Start by putting a automotive test lamp (incandescent
type) in series with the battery and ground cable. It should light and the fuse will remain intact.
Then start push/pulling electric cables and wires while observing test lamp. If there is a short from abrasion or a detached connector likely you'll get the lamp to flicker or go out.
If you cant get the lamp to flicker, you'll need to start disconnecting components to isolate the problem. Start with the ignition switch, but expect the light to go out. If it doesnt then, look to connections at the starter solenoid. Then disconnect engine alternator or voltage regulator. Then the PTO and brake switches.
