I have just bought a second hand cf-50 in good condition, but there was no owners manual. What is the significance of the LOW, MED, HIGH settings?

Those settings are compressor speed RPM settings.
In summer MED will be sufficient and in winter LOW.
Only if you filled up the fridge with all warm goods would you run it on HIGH for a couple of hours.
Make sure you wire the fridge in with 6mm2 wire and do not use a cigarette lighter plug. Use a Hella 16mm DIN plug or Clipsal T plug and socket.

No they are not.......they are to do with cut-out battery protection, being low, medium or high protection. Don't have the exact voltage cutout for each setting however it is in the manual

it may work ok from cig lighter connect, but will definitely work better with some decent wiring direct to battery...

The owners manual can be downloaded, but I had a look to find it again but couldnt.
However the following link answers the question:

The low setting will cut out the compressor when the voltage is at 10.8 vlt at the pump. Not the battery. The pump has this built in. The low setting was designed to cope with the voltage drop over a cig lighter. You will however get 5-7 hours more running time out of a battery if you wire a 6mm loom from a battery.. The high cut out is 11.9 vlt cut out. Pointless really. cause your always using your second batery, right ?. If not use the high setting so you can start the car again.
