try pulling out the fridge very slowly, any signs of hard resistance than stop. there should be a main water shut off back there. if still uncomfortable with this you can always shut the main water off to the house before trying. hope this helps.
tiles on wooden floors will always move and crack the grout/tiling cement
therefore the rubber membrane goes down first with out nails and then everything is laid on top
that way when the wooden floor moves , there is a water proof membrane to prevent the water from rotting the wood over time
need info. disconnect from electricity supply look for a water collector in bottom rear of fridge if full of water drain out make sure drain hose into fridge is clear : if it continuies door sesl needs looked at as taking in to much warm air
Yes there is a way to disconnect the water line. Pull the Fridge out from the wall. The electrical power chord should be on the back side as well as the 1/4" water line. You need to locate a valve and shut off the supply water. Then you can disconnect the line with wrenches. It is located near the bottom.
Sounds to me like you have a leak, probably from an ice maker tubing connection or vinyl water supply tube itself. Have someone get a good flashlight and get a good closeup look at where the water is coming from. The water supply to the fridge's icemaker comes from the house wall, floor, or cabinet area of sink. Often they are connected to fridge, then someone moves the fridge to clean and the line gets run-over or tugged on too hard causing a leak. If that is cause, install a new line (hardware stores have these specific to ice makers, 1/4" vinyl or copper tubing) and it should be coiled several times in mid air near the wall, so if fridge is moved out it just uncoils not incurrs damage from un-noticed tension (full amount of water pressure in that little line).
2nd possibility for newer type fridge. All frost free fridges have a pan underneath that catches condensation from coils, from the pan the water evaporates into the air where balance is achieved and pan is never full. On rare occasions, like during moving, on some the pan isn't fastened down and can fall out of place, then condensation water from the coils falls to floor (not any great amount but some).

The coil of tubing is normal so you can move the fridge out from the wall without damaging anything.
Your water line could be frozen in
the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the
door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out
there. If it does, leave the
door open till it thaws. If it doesn't come out there disconnect
it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could
be bad. A strainer before the inlet valve
can also get stopped up restricting flow.
The most the fridge will contribute is the quart or so of water contained in the lines. If the water has been turned off to the house and the valve to the refrigerator is closed, then that is about all the water that should come out of it.
If the water supply to the house is off, then open the valves to the tub or sink on lowest floor to relieve the pressure, then start looking for the water source.
If in a cold climate, look under the sink if it is on an outside wall
Is the water slow coming out of the water dispenser? Your fridge should have the same water pressure as any sink in your house. Most of the time low water supply is from thw water valve in your basement or under the sink or wherever your is hooked up. Most people use piercing valves and they always plug up
