Isotherm Cruise 130 - Holding Door Open

I have an isotherm cruise 130 fridge. I need to figure out how to keep the door propped open when I'm not using it so mold and mildew doesn't set in. I've thought of all sorts of rigs but all would look crappy, so I'd figured I'd ask:

Has anyone found a somewhat elegant way to keep a front-opening fridge door open slightly for ventilation when not in use?

Something that doesn't look like crap, doesn't swing back and forth, and doesn't get lost?

The fridge has a "latch" that's supposed to work for this but it doesn't work, so I'm looking for something home-made.

With a bungee cord between both parts of the latch to keep tension on the doorstop?
