The genetic algorithm is stochastic, it often gives different results every time.
Allow me to suggest that you use patternsearch instead of ga as your solver. It is usually faster, more robust, and easier to tune. The only down side is you need to supply initial points. If you have finite upper and lower bounds, you can try
x0 = lb + rand(size(lb)).*(ub  lb);
Good luck,
