Corrections above.

@Robin: The phrase in English is leave the door ajar.

A joke for kids:
When is a door not a door? When it's ajar. (a jar)

Entornar quiere decir 'to leave ajar' o 'to leave half-open'. Entreabrir significa 'to half-open'. Una puerta entreabierta could be translated as a cracked door, but I would say apenas abierta (barely opened).
