I've found that if you over tighten the two bolts holding the primer feed assy to the press it can cause the primer bar to stick. Try backing off the bolts a half turn or so and letting the primer assy float a LITTLE bit.

Between regular cleaning w/ alcohol, a little graphite powder, and freeing up the primer assy my 550primer system runs smoothly about 99.8% of the time.
