You deserve a break

breaks on Mac OS 10.11.5 don't happen

At the end of the timer count, the timer resets and there is no break.

I added a test break that breaks every 1 minute for 10 seconds. Notice that when the break should start, it just goes into the countdown timer again.

Here is the console output:

Try restarting your Mac; that might fix it.

If not, try the steps in this FAQ answer.
