I've never had any problems w/ a consistent flow. Have you checked for leaks in your tubing or within the siphon tube? Also how high is your carboy above the container you're siphoning into?
I use a household folding step stool for one w/ the receiving container on the floor.
I even use a cut off clamp to facilitate getting gravity samples and the flow restarts w/o issues.
