You can changes to Auto mode.
Some generator has auto mode and manual mode. In generally, emergency generators have these two actions, when power grid is cut off, the generator will connect to machine automatically, then supply power to the machine.

I don't know your equipment, but the unbalanced term may refer to too large a load connected to one leg of your split phase service. Go to your load panels and try to get the amps drawn by your loads to be more equal. You may be over taxing one leg and have available capacity on the other, assuming you are running a 110/220 V split phase output.

Check for low oil level. If level is OK, check low oil level sensor. Disconnect the wire to test.

Sounds like fuel starvation. Check fuel tap, the vent in the cap, and personally, I would take the carburettor off and clean it out.

The first thing I would look for would be internal fuses blown. This sounds like a 460 volt 12,000 watt industrial generator and you probably should call the installing contractor for service. My 15,000 watt generator is over 30 years old and has less than 700 hours on it and those are mostly test-run hours.

Change the circuit breaker. Its opening the circuit at some Amps.
Look for a good brand of Circuit breaker

Check and replace the spark plug, clean filters and try again. If this doesn't fix it, it is probably the carb. Clean it and try a SMALL squirt of starter fluid
