Hydor slim skim nano not working

Hi I have had my Hydor slim skim nano running for a few days now but literally nothing has happened yet. I don't hear it making noise or anything. I know skimmers need to be broken in but I thought it would at least make a noise. I just discovered that it's grate has to be partly in the water not fully today so I just adjusted that. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Has anyone had any experience with this?

You just told us what is going on... That the grate had to be half submerged and not fully..

I know that was a problem but was that the reason that it wasn't working?

Ohhh, I see what you're saying.
How long ago did you adjust it?
Is it working fine now?
Are there no bubbles or anything being created at all?

I'd wait like a day, then trouble shoot from there...
Were there any parts missing when you assembled it?

No I am pretty sure I made it properly

Okay I'll wait and see if it helps

Also do you have this skimmer?

I had it for a little while on a 20g just testing it out. I never had any problems putting it on though.
