The prime button only works if the START button has been pushed.

We need more complete information on what is happening, and what has transpired to the point of when you questioned if the cooker is working or not.

When holding the prime button in, the auger will run constantly until the button is released. If you don't also change the set temperature, the controller will compensate back to the temperature set on the controller.
