If your oven is of the self-cleaning variety, koshering it is fairly simple. All you need to do is self-clean it. If you need to kosher the oven racks too, just leave them in the oven while it self-cleans.1

A non-self-cleaning oven is much harder to kosher, requiring a lengthy and thorough procedure that involves a blow torch. If your oven is of this variety, I would recommend that you contact a rabbi who is familiar with both the laws and the procedure, and can arrange someone to kosher it for you.
