Need help on controls on original 1970 Dometic refrigerator

I recently came to own a 1970 Safari with the original Dometic refrigerator. The electric heater no longer works, but the gas side works great and the refrigerator chills nicely.

My issue is that the lettering on the plates behind the knobs are no longer legible. And, if they were, I'm not sure what the left-hand knob (where the pilot light button and spark knob are) does versus the right hand knob.

It would really help me if someone that has one of these older refrigerators could post a picture of the controls.

found a manual!

By golly, I found a manual! It took a while for me to figure out the model number from the manufacturer's plate. Turns out to be a model MB 52c. I'll printing out and will be adding it to my binder.
