Can the maintenance guy show up unannounced multiple times a week to enter our apartment because he knows I work from home?

Unless they provide notice that they are coming, you don't have to let him in. If he is coming in without permission and unannounced that may be a violation of your right to quiet enjoyment. A landlord has a right to make repairs and enter an apartment WITH NOTICE, but once a week is definitely pushing it, although it depends on the issues he is fixing. You and your roommate should speak with a lawyer to send a demand and rent withholding notice to your landlord to both get the stove fixed and to stop these unannounced house calls.
