LED flush mount burn marks?

All of a sudden noticed the lights are getting dim and opened it up to see this...any thoughts? how do i fix that other than buying a new light? it is an older 1900s house - can i even use LEDs?

Is that a retrofit LED kit for a recessed fixture ?
If it's burned it would need to be replaced.
The year of the house has no bearing on the type of fixture.
How old is that light in the picture ?

If it's only 6 months old I'd take it back for a replacement.

I have a feeling they may be inexpensive type light fixtures. They are running the LED's too hot.
If you require something to run continuously you may need to get a more expensive fixture.
