T​hat might be true to some extent, but those pans are painted and usually not rusting out. It wouldn't be hard to remove the cover up there and look. Is that something you can do or not? Let me know and I can direct you further here. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

How did you happen to notice that rust was coming out of there? Sounds like you were up there or did someone else report that?
