handle SEPARATE from dial?? turn handle and see if dial gets harder to turn.. see below..
BUT, you were close.. 4 times left to first number.. RIGHT, till the SECOND number comes up the THIRD time left, till the third number comes up the second time, right to open..
IF the dial got tighter with handle. STOP at left till third number above and see if handle will turn..
that might get you started at least.
