tacky primer

Hi, I'm refinishing a set of outside shutters. I've taken them down, removed all paint, and sanded. I then applied two coats of Kilz Premium Primer (water based-oil not available in Calif according to Home Depot salesperson) which I purchased two days ago. At least 4 hours between coats. The last coat was applied about 24 hr ago. Primer is still sticky. What should I do?
