I just brought a true -49 two door cooler last month. Last week I found the left side door didn't close by itself after I open it. I have to push it back. Is that the door hanger or something else?

The cooling coil is probably frozen up. Shut it off and leave the door open over night. Start it up in the morning and see if its more accurate. Down the road you may find you have issues like leaving the door open in high temperatures, maybe the coil is plugged with paper, ice, dust etc. and needs to be cleaned, or maybe it was improperly charged by the last service man that worked on it. The charge should have been weighed in with a scale by the ounce. Good luck and hope this helps.
I had same issue this past week. Refrigerator up to 45 freezer up to 15. Ice would melt and then everything would get cold again. Ice formed on everything. Next thing you know it was warming up again. I knew the rubber seal on door flap that opens to let ice out warped during summer months because I keep it 78 in summer. Had that replaced today. Temperatures have gone back to normal and stayed ALL DAY (knock on wood). Check door flap seal sticking your hand up making sure you don't push in the water tab. You should be able to feel if it is warped/wavy like an old LP or not. Good Luck.
That sounds like a wire is loose in the pin plug at top left hinge. The difficulty in opening the L door and the puff of air has me interested in what is happening. I will assist you if you like and will send a Service manual shortly. This may not be a simple solution or a one word solution but I will stick with you through out the repair, Thanks, Sea Breeze
please do not use hot water.........only clean drain hole with copper wire with very small cloth on
end.sounds like you left door open? adjust feet to allow door to close itself..if left ajar.
fully defrost.clean drain hole.adjust feet. switch on ...
this freezer works best full....
If its getting warmer or more humid where you are this is probably a sign of needing to clean your outer coils. Remove the panel covering the compressor and check the condition of the coils. Clean with a nylon brush or wire brush. Or blow out with compressed air.
If the outer coils look ok see if they feel warm up and down the sides. If they dont you may have a defrost problem. If they are warm recheck them in 30 minutes if still warm or warmer and no one has opened the door check the lite inside, and the fan inside (it will only run with door closed). Hit the switch and see if lite goes out and make sure the switch is being activated whith the door closed. It could be low on refrigerant or an inefficent compressor but not laikey as much as these other items are.
The last thing is the thermometer could be reading wrong or out of calibration. Is it Electronic? Yes - Then its most likely one of the other problem before. If its mechanical (bi-metal) get another thermometer you trust or a new one and check it before you trust it. 2 of them telling you its 5'f then Id believe it other wise one or both of them are wrong.
