What causes metal deficiency defect?

There are many solids which are difficult to prepare in the stoichiometric composition and contain less amount of the metal as compared to the stoichiometric proportion. A typical example of this type is FeO which is mostly found with a composition of Fe0.95O. 

This type of defect occurs in compounds where the metal can exhibit variable valency. e.g., Transition metal compounds.
