more than likely you're what we called short cycling, you have a blocked vent. remove the vent from the machine and you will see the burner operate for the proper amount of time. if you remove the vent and the burner short cycles change the coils on the burner. post back.

Check the vent for proper airflow, if that's good it is probably the coils. Run it with the vent off to confirm good airflow.
