It is most likely due to, as you point out, to some condensation because paraffin wax will protect the metal preventing it to rust. Check for possible condensation.

Hello to all I histoland.  I just discovered that my first paraffin pot has a  hole in it due to rust.  And of course all of the paraffin overtime had leaked out.  Does anyone have a idea what may have contributed to this happening?  I think that it had to do with some condensation.  We have had this VIP-5 for about 8 years and never had this to occur.  Any thoughts?
