If the original design and material strength were inadequate, one would not expect to rely on welding to fix it in any way that would be likely to prevent a repeat performance.

Welding aluminum will normally weaken the base metal surrounding the wekd zone. So, how much good is that likely to accomplish for you, long term?

The plate design was faulty the day it went into production, and the manufacturer needs to acknowledge that by replacing it (or both).
