I have same problem where distortion works but clean doesn't on same amp. What might be helpful for someone to help me is that sometimes the clean does work.

I don't believe there is a power "outlet" on this, only an "inlet".
Usually the inlet will have a lead, often green, that goes to the chassis.
There will usually be two other wires, often black and white that connect to the other two pins.
From the back of the connector, with the center pin tied to the grenn wire of the triangle lower, the pin to the right should be the white and the pin to the left is the black wire

You may simply be overdriving the clean channel and causing it to "flat top" . See if it occurs when you back the gain down a bit. New tubes PROBABLY will not help and be a waste of money. You may be unconciously playing harder during the popping episodes. You cannot hear level variations smaller than about 3 Db BUT the electronics will sense much smaller variations. You could gently tap the tubes with a lead pencil to listen for any pops... NOTE: tubes can be slightly microphonic so some sound from tapping is normal.
Yes, a cable can be noisy and not show itself when using intentio0nal distoprtion... try another to verify it is not the problem.

Yellow should be the positive. Try plugging in and reversing. The louder of the two is the one in phase and the correct wiring. If the speaker is pushing out when playing , it is in phase and correct also.
The distortion problem could be a speaker going out. It may not be totally blown, but may be verging.
Holding your hand out as wide as you can push against the speaker lightly. If there is a rubbing or scratching sound, the speaker could be damaged.If it moves freely, and there is no scratching its okay.
Another possibility is the clean channel may have a channel volume set to high. Make sure the clean channel volume is set lower than the master volume otherwise you can get distortion on that channel too.
