SOURCE: water leaking onto floor
Angels, sounds like your defrost drain is frozen over. When the refrigerator is going into defrost it's draining through the front instead of the drain pan. You can remove the shelves and peel off the back cover and clear the drain by pouring hot water on the frozen drain hole. If you have a baster of some sort you could try to squirt the hot water through the venting on the bottom of the panel. Another way to to point a hair dryer on the drain hole. The best method is to remove the shelves and panel and make sure the drain is clear. Catriver..post back.

Sounds like you have excess pressure building up in the water system. Is the water dispensor working? If not it sounds like you have a frozen line somewhere or the valve in the door is not working to allow the water to dispence.

If The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Go to the hardware store and get a brass tube sleeve coupling; cut off the old tube end, slide the hex cap thread side out onto the tube, then; slide the tube sleeve onto the tube and, seat the tube into the supply valve then tighten the hex nut.
take the old parts to the hardware store to compare; the size is most likely 1/4" the part can be found in the "evaporative cooler parts" section of the hardware store

and water dispensers are convenient to have on your refrigerator, but
can also cause a lot of aggravation if they are not functioning
If your water valves are not defective and you are still
experiencing water or ice delays, you may have a clog in your
refrigerator hose line.
