Common Crate VC Problem??

KobbsCommon Crate VC Problem??
I've had, currently have, will probably have in the future Crate VC 30's (various models) with what appears to be a common problem, and I'm hoping a common solution. There are the volume ups and downs, however, these tend to be fixed with a major solder joint overhaul... However, what sometimes remains, and I can't seem to find the specific problem, is a hiss/static/low level distortion that creeps in to the sound of the amp after it warms up... I know this is common, but as I stated before, looking to see if anyone knows a common solution... particularly weak cap, dressing, etc. etc.???
