Workers identified a problem with electrical wiring that connects a terminal box to the motor that powers one of the plant’s four reactor coolant pumps, said Jennifer Young, a FirstEnergy spokesman.
The wiring requires repair, and testing of the motor continues, she said. She did not know when the plant would restart or what caused the wiring problem.
