I filled it and then turned it on and then hit the prime button on top.

mine has been running for almost a year and not missed a beat. It does take ages to prime if you haven't filled it prior to reinstalling, and there are a few bubbles for 5 minutes or so but thats just trapped air working its way through and out the filter media.
