Default Electric Question

If you have a flickering refrigerator light due to a loose connection,
does the removal of the light bulb eliminate the threat of arcing?

No, it removes the bulb, but leave an open socket and the same loose
connection that can still arc to something grounded.

It is also possible that the bulb itself has a loose filament and is causing
the flicker.
