Oven light burning out

Recently I posted about a 30" Garland (BlueStar predecessor) RPB range we acquired and "refurbished". One problem we are noticing is that the light bulb in the oven lasts about 4 days. I inspected the socket while I had everything disassembled, and did not notice anything amiss with the socket or the wiring to it - the connectors were all tight, and not corroded. Any suggestions as to why we may be going through bulbs? We have had the oven up to high temps a few times, but our previous electric self cleaning oven certainly achieved higher temps and our bulbs lasted years in it.

Thanks,
Scott

I should add that we are using appliance bulbs - we have tried GE and Sylvania so far.
