what cause freezer door sticking?
if mullion heater is on will it cause sticking freezer door?
evaporator oversize will cause this issue also?

door seal is perfect no air leakage issue.

its a walk-in freezer by the way.

The only reason why a door would be stuck closed is if the
door was frozen to the door frame.

Evap size has nothing to do with it. If the door frame is cold
enough to freeze moisture on it then the heater tape is not
opperating correctly.

All the best

Is there a relief port on the room?

Heaters around the door keep the frame dry and the door rubber seal will never stick to the frame.

check heater around doors and frame and if you have not have air relief put small air relief holes on it . in designing we try to put door in position there is not direct evaporator fan's blow

The mullion htrs should be warm to touch and as 750 vav said a relief port is necessary for pressure imbalance, the balance port should also have a htr in it.
