Once I get deferred action status under DACA, when should I renew it?

Your DACA status is only valid for two years. 

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recommends you renew your DACA status 120 to 150 days before the expiration date on your DACA approval notice and/or Employment Authorization Card. Renewing during this timeframe increases your chances of having your DACA status renewed before your deferred action status expires. To renew, applicants must submit a new set of forms and pay a fee. Failure to renew your DACA will leave you without legal status once your DACA expires. Talk to an immigration attorney to help you renew your deferred action status.
