Magnetic Sheets is a great way to cover a heating/air conditioning vents! We rent an older home, and most of the heating/AC vents are rusted wide open. Since our landlord isn't interested in fixing our oven, we know she's not gonna repair the small stuff, either. Most of the time, the vents are fine as-is, but the one under my sewing table either roasts or freezes my feet, depending on the season.
That is a great idea. However, as a property manager, I have to say that your landlady is obligated by law to assure your oven works. If you google the landlord tenant act for your state, as well as read your contract, you will see that she/he is suppose to maintain appliances, electricity, heating, plumbing and structure. If they are not complying, in some instances, you can ask for compensation for rent, fix it yourself and deduct that amount from you rent, ask an appliance repair person to fix it, or buy a new/used stove and deduct that from the rent.
Make sure you are not in "non-compliance" of your contract and in the right, or you could be asked to leave. You are paying for working appliances, so don't put up with ones that don't. Good luck!
