Wiring issue?

I have what is apparently the smallest electricsl box made. (1958) I have a kitchen light that repeatedly burns out after only a few months. Could I have bad wiring, or could it be due to the small electrical box?

Re: Wiring issue?

I'm far from an electrician. :rolleyes:
I would say the size of the box itself has nothing at all to do w/ it. :confused:
I had a similar problem in the past, where on a 3 bulb ceiling fan/ light one bulb was always buring out after awhile.
I ended up cleaning out all 3 light sockets very well (compressed air & dry rag)then placed the bulbs back in bit more snug then in the past.
I have not burned out any lights from that that fixture since! :eek:
Good Luck
