HELP.......Adding a super.

I have a question about a honey super I just added. I have a hive which over a three week period completely filled up its two brood chambers with honey. I added a super with rite cell foundation 10 days ago before I left for work offshore. I came back today expecting to see some honey stores but when I opened the top ........ Nothing. They hadn't even drawn any comb. They had managed to wax the frames together, but nothing else. I've never had problems with rite cell before. Should I put some syrup on top or spray the frames with sugar water or something?

no. the brood chambers are 2 deep supers and the honey super is 6 5/8 inch. when I went through the hive two weeks ago, there was still room for the queen to lay.
