My a/c does not work and has not been working for 7 days. Maintenance comes in occasionally messes with the a/c but does not fix the problem. The dishwasher and garbage disposal has not been working since I moved in.
Many, many people live in dwellings that do not have A/C, dishwashers and disposals. You have zero chance of a court ruling your residence is unlivable for these reasons.
You might have a breech of the lease contract, but that would be to get you out of remaining obligated under the lease for future rent, not refund of prior payments.
