The tubes are not the only thing that wears out.

Electrolytic condensers (capacitors) tend to "dry out" with may hours of use and can get damaged in time with many turn on/off cycles, so you might wanna get them checked, too.

Just in case, also have the resistors checked, some might have changed in resistance from heating up.

Also, the fault could be something else like oxydation on the tube socket pins, damaged (or dirty) switches and connectors, there's plenty of things to check out.
