Although my Racors are 500 series I'm confident that any of the Racors would not be designed to function with air inside the filter. I would suggest that you open the top of the filter-separator and top it off with diesel, inspect the O-ring and moisten it with a finger swipe of diesel and refit the top. There actually may be another O-ring seal at the threaded center post for you to inspect. Often these O-rings can be replaced as they are present within the packaging of the replacement filters. Once again, I'm speaking with my familiarity with the 500 series, but I assume it's similar. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
