Hello haim... here is a manual for a 160. if it is not exactly your model it may be very close to yours so the information would apply.

Try for a different owners manual instead with the same amperage rating since they operate the same way. They were copied from US manufacturers in the past and still are

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.

What is the basic technique in welding


Hi:
Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.
I think if will be better if you read the basics of welding with MIG machines with an owner's manual. Check the link and go to section B-7.
