I have a Subzero bottom freezer refrigerator that is sweating on the
rear of the cabinet behind the freezer section. The sweating does not
occur between the doors but there is also some sweating on the one
section of the freezer door.
Can this be repaired?

Sweating can/could be an air leak, wet insulation, defrost drain leak,
plugged condensor coil....have a SZ service depot check it out.

Which model do you have? 611 or 650? How old is it?
Describe exactly where it is sweating. On the outside of the cabinet shell
on the back? If so, first remove the back cover and check to make sure the
refer drain hose has not split. This hose runs down to the drain pan. Verify
the ice maker water line hasn't split. Also check behind the refer crisper
drawer to make sure the drain tube is intact from the drain trough. If all
is well, then you may have a foam void. If this is a newer cabinet, I would
talk to the vendor about a replacement unit.
If you feel inclined, pull the freezer drawer out and flip it upside- down.
Remove the trim in it's a frame or overlay unit. There are holes on the
bottom... one is the hole to charge the door with the foam mixture(an A and
B part, that mixes inside the wand) and should have two .108" holes as air
bleeders. On the side with the sweating issue, push a wire into the hole.
You will know right away if there are voids.
Where sweating is an issue, press with your hand on the surface with
moderate pressure, it will not give more than a 1/16 to 1/8" inch if there
is foam there.
Let me know the results,
