Formula reporting from drop down list


I have a sheet that is used to track downtime in our production faclility.

Essentially an electronic form is used to record how long the line is down in minutes, based the length of time reported I have a formula that makes an associated cell record if the amount of time represents a "major" or a "minor" stoppage.

5 minutes or more is a major stoppage.

=IF([STOPPAGE LENGTH]19 >= "5", "Major")

The issue I am having is that when an amount of time greater than 9 is selected the formula doesnt work.......

Perhaps this is because I am using a drop down list not a number text column type?

Any advice appreciated.
