Hi, I will try to help.
What model do you have? That would help. The pictures are useless as you say.

I looked up the oven, and it has many models. The 9 function oven says the following.
9-Function Electric Oven :
- Light
- Bottom Element + Fan
- Conventional (Top + Bottom Element)
- Conventional+Fan
- Grill + Rotisserie
- Full Grill + Rotisserie
- Grill + Fan + Rotisserie
- Fan Cooking Mode
on this website.

I hope that helps a little or at least gets you closer to your answers. ~Bliss

Did it not come with a an owner's manual? If not, I'd call the company and ask for one.

This was my first thought too. Every appliance comes with a manual. Whenever I buy anything I always read the manual before I use it. The manual on your Elba will show exactly what everything does and how it's done.

Sorry but you didn't post the pictures correctly so we can't click on them.

  • Power: 1600W
  • Capacity: 35L
  • Rotisserie & Convection Functions
  • New Interior Lamp Design
  • 60 Minutes Timer with Bell Ring
  • 100-250 Degree Temperature Control
  • 4 Stainless Steel Heating Elements
  • 4 Stages Switch Heating Selector
  • Dimension (cm): 57 (H) x 41.5 (W) x 44.0(D)
  • Gross Weight: 9.91kg
To me, it looks like one would choose between convection and rotisserie, one would be a 60 minute timer, one would be a Celcius temperature control, and one would switch between 4 stages of heat selection.
You can send them your question on this web contact us page. Make sure to give the model number and that you want to know what each of the knobs represents. Good luck, Bliss
