Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Sum All Primes

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Your code so far

I am not getting why is not passing the test.
function sumPrimes(num) {
  function checkPrimes(number) {
    for(let i = 2; i < number; i++) {
      if(number % i === 0) {
       return false
      return true
  let result = 0;
    for(let j = 2; j <= num; j++) {
      if(checkPrimes(j)) {
        result += j
    return result
