The beacon in the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which has stopped rotating twice this year, is now turning once again, the Island Free Press reported.
The beacon first got stuck in February and was out of commission for several days until the motor was replaced. The light again stopped rotating last week.
A U.S. Coast Guard repair crew replaced a fuse and the mechanism was back up and running.
The National Park Service owns the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, but the Coast Guard maintains the beacon, since it is still considered an aid to navigation.
The beacon is lit by two back-to-back, 1,000-watt rotating lights. The lights are serviced by the Coast Guard once a year or as needed.
