Different fruits and vegetables have different storage needs with regard to the humidity level. To give you an example, items like lettuce, spinach and berries prefer high humidity (over 90%), while onions and squash prefer lower relative humidity (under 80%). Since the RF266AERS features Samsung's signature Twin Cooling system, which maintains an optimally high humidity level (over 70%) throughout the refrigerator, your produce should last longer compared to conventional systems regardless of the setting on the drawer. The drawer lever can complement the Twin Cooling, however: open the lever for lower humidity-loving fruits and veggies, and close the lever to increase it. A helpful trick to remember which produce loves higher humidity is to think of what items are kept on the sides of the produce aisle in the grocery stores (where they receive frequent "mistings" of water) and which are not.
As for the icemaker, it can take up to 24 hours for the freezer to reach the set temperature, which is recommended by Samsung as being no higher than -2°F. Once this temperature is reached, the icemaker should start to produce ice at the rate of approximately 133 cubes per day under ideal conditions. Factors like water pressure and freezer temperature (which can change if the drawer is opened frequently or warmer items are loaded into it) will effect the pace of ice production. Selecting the Power Freeze option on the control panel can speed up ice making.
