So to splice this wire you'll need to pull the the oven out and remove the screws coming into the back sheet metal panel. Locate the wire going to the light socket that is too short and cut it so you can splice a wire onto the existing wire. You'll need to use a ceramic wire nut to withstand the heat of the oven so use a ceramic wire nut, extend the wire, and put a new terminal on the end of the wire to plug onto the socket and you should be good to go again.
