sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

SOURCE: refrigerator leaking water
There is normally a small shutoff valve installed in the water line servicing the ice maker; you might shut off the flow of water until you locate the problem.
Most drip pans can be slid out but it would be wise to lower the level with sponges or similar to avoid any more spillage than you already have.
If the 'knob' is centered it is probably the release knob for the grill, behind which is of course the drip pan.
Before damning the ice maker (although they are among the most unreliable devices known to man), I would pull the fridge out and examine the fitting where the water line is attached.
Any lime buildup or green corrosion around the fitting would imply that the leak is external to the cabinet and the leaked water is only accidentally making it to the drip pan.
If you haven't been getting blocks of ice in the cube storage bin, the shutoff valve is apparently working so you may get lucky locating the source of the leak.

Does water come out of the water dispenser?
I is more likely that the tube that drains the water down from the self defrost mechanism is clogged. Look in the very back of the reefer cabinet, you will see a trough back there, if it is full of ice and water the drain tube is clogged up. If so, a little blast of air from a can of air (like the ones you use to blow off computer key boards will blow it out. Then the water can drain down to the evaporator pan and you will no longer get water on the floor.

Leaky dispenser ???
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. If so you need to replace the valves.

Just had this problem a few weeks ago. tube from freezer was frozen solid 1-2 feet down from the freezer. Empty EVERYTHING out of the the Fridge and the freezer into coolers or other suitable 2-4hr container(s). Unplug the unit and use a hair blow dryer on the coolest warm setting. If it's too hot it may melt plastic or styrofoam parts. As long as long as you have everything out and it's going to be at room temperature for a while, why not clean it totally out with fantastic or your favorite cleaner. Once your sure the clog is gone from the tube, put it all back together, plug it in and stop being a slob and keep it clean!!!! hehehehehehe
