Question:

Can one kasher a clean (but not new) oven on chol hamoed Pesach?

Answer:

In general an oven cannot be kashered on pesach itself. The reason being, since the chometz inside the walls of the oven are already considered not kosher, therefore the oven will need libun chamur,; a temperature that a regular oven cannot reach. Even with a self cleaning oven, the glass on the oven door will still remain problematic.
