When living in a rented apartment, how much/many repairs am I supposed to do myself, if any?

For example,
1. The hood of my oven is about to fall off – broken screws, etc.
2. The door hinges in a few rooms have rusted, worthless screws that don’t "bite" into the wood anymore
3. My tub and one of my bathroom sinks is plugged up.

I’m just giving examples of "minor" problems. I hate having maintenance goons in my apartment, but i also don’t feel like i should spend any money on repairs that aren’t my fault. What’s the basic rule of thumb?
