My landlord won't fix the house I am renting. I was not

Customer Question

My landlord won't fix the house I am renting. I was not allowed in to inspect it until I gave him a check for over 7000 dollars. Then I gave him a list and photographic proof. He has been stalling for almost 3 months. Now he won't pay for cleaning a duct that is causing the dryer to overheat and made me have a $600 electric bill two months in a row.
The lease says he is not responsible for repairs and I can't withhold money from the rent if I pay for them.
What rights do I have in Contra Costa County?
