Did it every work correctly?

Did you install the thermostat yourself?

Did you buy a conbination heating and cooling thermostat and hook up the furnace control leads to the cooling terminals (turns on when the termperature goes up)?

So if you burn the place down by doing work, as a renter, you want to be responsible?

It's his responsibility as a land lord! Have him call a qualified tech and make repairs that's why you pay rent?
