My new home warranty expires in 2 days. I submitted defect fixes from an inspection a month ago. some fixes are done the rest are still waiting to be done. The warranty guy just says they will be addressed, not that they will be fixed. I feel like they are waiting for the warranty to expire.
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: I only submitted the warranty fixes
JA: Where is the home located?
Customer: Wylie, Texas
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: That's it as of now

With insurance the deadline that generally matters is when the claim was reported.  So long as you report the claim within the coverage period, then it should be covered regardless of whether the policy subsequently is cancelled or not renewed.

What course of action can I take if they now refuse to fix them once the warranty expires?

It would depend on why they are refusing to fix the items.  If they are refusing to fix the items and their refusal constitutes a breach of the insurance contract, then your remedy would typically be to sue for breach of contract.  You could generally do so in small claims court if the amount in question is less than $20,000.
