I need to get to the ice/water dispenser to see if I can adjust it. How do you take off the front panel? It seems to be snapped into place, but I don't want to pull too hard in case it breaks. Is there a special technique involved?

Possibly a clogged piece of ice from water leakage preventing the dispensing of ice. If you haven't tried taking the ice bucket out and rinsing it under hot water to get all the frozen ice out, you should.
Lowering the water pressure to the fridge by turning the knob on the connection at the wall should help prevent the excess water and clogging going forward. There is a very small change between almost off and just on, where the water will still dispense from the front of the fridge but you can tell that the pressure is less, that should give the desired results. It may take some trial and error by testing the water flow from the door while adjusting the valve at the wall.
The water pressure adjustment may help with the flooding problem under the meat/cheese drawer as well, but most likely you have a clogged drain too because it's a very common issue with these fridges. There should be a panel on the bottom back of the fridge with 3 or 4 Phillips head screws that opens access to the drain tubes which are just about in the horizontal center. The drain tubes are little white plastic tubes with flexible bulges (they look like really oversized whitish/clear bendy straws). They are about 5 inches long each and you will probably see a bunch of gunk at the bottom where they enter the plastic evaporation tray. There is a rubber grommet with a flap on the end of them that needs to be cleaned out, and there may even be some ice formed in the tube that needs to be cleaned out. This will take a bit of time and patience while crouching or on your knees, so be ready for that and have towels ready for excess water. I found a turkey baster and a glass of warm water to be very helpful as well.
Four possibilities are the water control valve for ice maker is leaking while off, you have a leak in ice maker, time on ice maker needs adjusting if the mechanical type, If electronic not much can be adjusted and if you refrigerator is leaning, Let me know if when you unplug the water control valve if it still flows, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
