Exclamation Brand new filter impellar not turning...

I just did a leak check on a new tank that I havent set up yet and I was tryin to run my filter while I was at it. I hung it on the tank and plugged it in and it made a kinda of rattling sound but didnt pump and water. Its a tetra whisper 60 power filter. Someone please help cuz i lost my receipt!!

Not to be a jerk...but did you prime it?

Most HOB I've dealt with have to be full of water before they operate.
