It's a feature!

In reality, check the connection to the shut-off switches, (the control panel and dash switches both connect to the generator at the same place). It's likely not connected.

Is it "dieseling" when you turn it off, or just running like normal?

If it is, change the spark plug.

Also, check the grounds on those switches. I seem to remember that being a problem as well.
