If the sound is like a string vibrating against something, ensure that is not strings (usually G) vibrating against the bridge.
Ensure that the two screw on the saddle are well in place.
Ensure also that the vibration is not coming from a string vibrating against the frets, in that case you can fix the problem by adjusting the action and rectifying the bow of the neck.
In either case, if the sadde and neck bow are cause of vibration, try tweaking the saddles a little, and lowering the position of the saddle a bit downward. Try also to rectify the neck. turning the apposite screw.

Try restoring to factory settings first by turning it on while holding down the Level,Fx,Setupand Trans keys all at the same time. Your key delay function might be out of adjustment. You also have to remember to keep at least one of your thumbs on one of the earth plates. Refer to your owners manual. Start with the factory settings and compare each page of the manual to your instrument until you familiarize yourself completely with the manual. Play the instrument for a while with factory settings until you decide where you have to make changes. Work slowly with each adjustment and the manual until you get what you want. Some adjustments will affect others. Take careful note of what the manual says about temperature and humidity changes.

I want you to do a test. while using the amp plug a pair of headphones into the preamp out... note you will only hear stuff on one side if they are stereo phones and the sound may be fairly weak... while the unit is operating correctely then unplug phones and use it. When it fades out plug in phones compare the level when it was OK... If the preamp output fades lower as well, then we know problem is in the preamp section...
We can do a lot of troubleshooting without opening the amp.
I see nothing in the scheamtics that should be an issue causing this...
Since it didn't fail for the tech, think "what was different?". Are you connecting something else? Foot pedal? Temperature? :Loudness of playing?
Now what else is in common to these two units... AHA! The guitar...
If your guitar has a battery in it, the 20 to 30 minutes fading would correspond to a battery failing and then recovering after you unplug the guitar for a while.

Could have broken a spring in the reverb tank, or a wire connecting it to the amp, or the reverb driver tube, or a few other things, but those are the most likely in this situation. Thats what I'd check first. Give it a little slap and if it vibrates like normal, your spring is probably ok, you can still open it up and double check though. Check your wires. Then pull your reverb driver tube and replace it. If that doesn't work, it is probably in the circuit somewhere, and you should not work on your amp unless you know what you are doing. They store large amounts of electicity in the caps and they can kill you.

You can plug the output of the gt10 into the "power amp in" jack of the Fender. This bypasses the preamps in the Fender but uses a buffer amps in the Fender to drive the power amp. Please note that the reverb is STILL in the circuit when you do this. You can turn the reverb to zero if you wish to disable it.
