I uploaded the information available for this model. Click the link and see PDF pages 139 and on. Did they give you an aftermarket version of the Knob as the manual has the wires color coded. If so the only way to confirm is to test with an OHM meter each switch and tag the wires accordingly as shown in the manual or ask for a knob with the color coded wiring. Let me know.
