Check the tube pins and sockets.Check and clean the band switch if it has one they can cause all kinds of troubles.Recap the set if you have not done that.See if you can find any bad solder joints .Sprman : )

First try cleaning it several times.Look at it closely to make sure contacts are making full contact.Iwould replace it with the same kind from a junker set ect,if it is indeed bad.You may have to clean it 3 or 4 times and work back and forth to get it clean.Sprman : )

No oil !Try alcohol to clean it .Oil will short it out.Any spray contact cleaner will work too.Sprman : )

Caution with carb cleaner as it melts plastics.
You might also look for intermittent resistor as heating up over time it will crack open so look for both hairline cracks and poor solder joints.
