    Pictures cannot always help you as the cracks can be thin and hard to see when they are first starting.As cbbr said, pull the box and clean the area thoroughly. Pay particular attention to the lower left hole (as you look at the frame from the inside). Use a good light source and rub your fingernail around the holes to check for ridges in the metal you might not be able to see. The earlier you catch a crack the easier it is to fix!
