GENSET (GENERATOR) CUTTING OUT.?

HI FROM NEW ZEALAND.
I HAVE A LISTER-PETTER 16 KVA DIESEL 3 PHASE GENSET WITH SINGLE PHASE SOCKET @ 240 VAC. WITH A ITALIAN ELECTRONIC DIAGNOSTICS CONTROL PANEL WITH BREAKERS ETC.

WHEN RUNNING A "ESAB CADDY PROFESSIONAL 140" INVERTER WELDER @130 AMPS USING 4 MM HARDFACING RODS, ON FIRST STRIKE THE GENSET CUTS OUT AND DIE.
WHEN USING A COPPER WOUND TRANFORMER WELDER THE THING RUNS WELL BUT WILL NOT STOP WHEN I HIT THE KEY TO TURN OFF OR EMERGENCY STOP BUTTON.

NOTE; THIS IS A STANDBY GENSET IN THAT I JUST PLUGGED IN A WELDER, THE GENSET IS NOT A DEDICATED WELDING GENERATOR.....I USED OTHER DIESEL GENSETS PRIOR WITHOUT ANY PROBS.

WILL ANY1 HAVE ANY CLUES? REGARDING THIS.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.

If you're pulling 130 amps, then you are overloading that genset. I included a sight that has the formulas to prove what I'm saying. If you do get it to run it, it will probably overheat. As far as when it keeps running, how are you shutting it down when it does? This would tell you directly what the problem was. On diesel engines, they shut down with shutting fuel down. The only reason it would not shut down with shutting off the fuel actuator (as it should automatically be doing when you shut the switch off) would be if it was burning the oil to continue to run (dieseling).
