Do NOT attempt the repair yourself. If something should happen, the property management will hold you liable for damages. Technically it's your lease, but it's still their property. Put in a maintenance request and wait. If the maintenance is as bad as you say, report the management to the rent control board or the authority having jurisdiction. Obviously this is not a life-threatening situation where it would cause you to rent a hotel room for the week-end.
