Deterioration, Rust and Corrosion in electrical connections create extra resistance for electricity flow, which causes heat, arching burning and flickering of lights. Loose connections and loose termination cause the same safety hazard potential.
FPE panels could work fine for years, but after one overcorrect or short circuit, they can overheat and become a fire hazard. The panel could over heat and catch fire and cause severe damage to the home. There is an average of 2,800 fires 13 deaths and $40 million in property damage per year.

If your house was built between 1965 and 1973 you are most likely to have aluminum wiring. Aluminum wiring becomes defective faster than copper due to the qualities inherent in the metal. Neglected connections in outlets, switches and light fixtures
containing aluminum wiring become increasingly dangerous over time. Poor connections cause wire to overheat, creating a potential house fire
Certainly heated up from increased resistance, but it also may have been subject to arching, which can create even more heat. ... This is called a parallel arc fault and can be caused by (among other things) loose wires that touch other wires inside an electrical box. Conductors being underrated for there voltage and amperage potential as well.
