Hello Faith,

To properly answer this question, we will need to know the model number of the generator. However I am going to assume this generator has an evolution controller in it, since the generator is only running for 5 minutes during the exercise cycle. The installer or an authorized dealer have the ability to change the exercise time duration , as it is a hidden menu on the controller only accessible by these people. You will need to call an authorized generac dealer to accomplish this . It is perfectly normal for the generator to run for only 5 minutes as it will save on fuel consumption .
