SOURCE: changed polarity on the rossi 220 amp mig welder but still won't weld

What do you mean "it won't weld" ? Does the wire come out when you press the trigger? If so and there's no spark when you ground it then check the heavy relay that operates the heavy juice. Tell us what you have done and tried so far.

Is there any buttons on welder to get a earth I have brand new jasic 250 all set up but cant seem to get a earth no spark did I do something wrong

The welding rod lead has to go into the +ve while the current return which looks like a big alligator clip goes into -ve and is clipped to the metal object you wish to weld.
if you are using mig then check the little black switch under the left zero has been switched to mig.
there is a orange power switch thing on the back of the welder that needs to be checked also .

How to connect a Miller welding machine

Do you need information on how to connect the electrodes to use it, or how to connect to your garage/shop/house's power?
If it's a different type of plug than your outlet has the ability to receive, it likely means it's a 220 welder (as most welders are), and you would need a 220 outlet to plug it into. In which case, you need an electrician or someone else capable of wiring and installing a plug for you.
If you're wanting to know how to connect the electrodes to use the welder, the negative (black, generally) clamp needs to be securely clamped to a (preferably bare) metal area near where you want to weld. Usually problems with good ground connections are caused by not having the ground attached to bare, shiny steel. If it arcs at the clamp, it means it's not grounding well enough to work properly.

Have 130xp welds the same with or with out the gas welds are not smooth

check wire feed speed , volts setting and current setting
if you are using solid wire with a gas bottle then the leads will be + to the hand piece and negative to the work
if you are using gas less wire ( no gas required) then the hand piece has to switched to the - terminal and the earth to the + terminal basically smooth welds is a combination of wire feed ,volts and amps suitable for the material thickness being welded

Rossi 220BZ Gas/Gasless Inverter Welder MIG MAG ARC Portable Welding Machine

The Rossi 220bz mig welder comes set up to use gas welding, that is with the Mig electrode connected to the positive terminal, inside the machine.
To use gasless mig wleding, the mig wire must be disconnected from the positive terminal inside the machine and reconnected to the Negative terminal - inside the machine. Open both the side coveres of the welder using a phillips screwdriver. Use a 13mm spanner to undo the hex nut holding the thick copper Mig lead to the terminal named positive, then lead it through the machine to the terminal on the oppisite side of the machine, labelled negative and screw it in place there with a 13mm hex screw. Be carefull not to bump any of the many electric parts inside the machine.
If you run the Mig welder in gasless mode with positive earth and positive elecrode it will blow the household electric fuse.
If you run the Mig welder in gasless mode with negative earth and positive electrode it will work, but the end of the Mig gun tip will get very very hot and start smoking abnormally from excessive heat.
But if you take the side covers off and rewire it (takes about 10 minutes) to negative Mig Electrode, the Mig gun tip remains cool and does not overheat. You will have to cut just one white cable tie, to get an extra inch or so of free Mig cable, so the thick copper Mig lead will reach accross to the terminal on the other side of the machine named negative. Stick the earth lead at the front in the positive terminal.
I did this on my Rossi 220bz mig welder.
