The things that typically go bad are solder joints that tend to be under stress, jacks, switches, connectors, etc. You can narrow down the problem by deducing where it's happening in the signal path- whether it's on the dry signal, wet signal, one output, both outputs, whether or not it's affected by gain controls... and then look at the schematic to see what that suggests.
I appreciate getting a reply but this is not very helpful. I went over all of the circuit board solder connections, jacks, switches, connectors. There are no intermittent issues with any of these. As I thought I was clear when I explained, the noise which sounds like "static" interference or "crackling" is caused only by physical movement of the reverb springs, therefore isolated only to the wet output. The dry signal is unaffected. The reverb transformer wires are also not the cause. It is similar to the sound you get when metal filings get attached to guitar pickup magnetic pole pieces and it makes a crackling sound when you play. Don't know if there could be a similar scenario with a reverb tank. Never experienced this issue with any other reverb circuit. Just found a schematic as I write this.
