I cannot find out, how to place the finger numbers below the staff of the left hand staff in a piano staff.

The command \set fingeringOrientation = #'(down) does not work or it only works with chords.

This is an example:

\version "2.19.83"
\score {
  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff a'1-1
    \new Staff \relative c, { 
        \clef bass 
        \set fingeringOrientations = #'(down)
        c4-5 \tuplet 3/2 { c8-5 f-2 g-1 } \tuplet 3/2 { a-2 g-1 f-2 } c4
    }
  >>
  \layout { }
}

And this is the result:

Just specify whether you want them up or down for each note, using ^ or _ instead of -.

\version "2.19.83"
\score {
  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff a'1-1
    \new Staff \relative c, {
        \clef bass
        c4_5 \tuplet 3/2 { c8_5 f_2 g_1 } \tuplet 3/2 { a_2 g_1 f_2 } c4
    }
  >>
  \layout { }
}

If you want to position a larger number of fingerings, you can use \override Fingering.direction = #-1:

\version "2.19.83"
\score {
  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff a'1-1
    \new Staff \relative c, { 
        \clef bass 
        \override Fingering.direction = #-1
        c4-5 \tuplet 3/2 { c8-5 f-2 g-1 } \tuplet 3/2 { a-2 g-1 f-2 } c4
    }
  >>
  \layout { }
}
