It could be a shorted diode, If I remember correctly a shorted diode will make it draw a very large current and make a pretty loud noise, (more of a growling/vibrating noise then crackling thou).

You won't usually get the loud noise with a bad magtube unless it is shorted and from checking yours it doesn't seem to be shorted.
