I have a ceiling fan that has lost the intensity of the bulb, I changed the bulb twice and still the same problem. At the store I was told the transformer was broken. I looked inside the fan and found the reverse module Type B from Rhine company#UC7067REV. Can't find a company in USA to buy it. I only found the company who makes them in Taiwan. Is there some one who has them in USA?

A PL-190B ceiling fan module is is a Wattage Limiter rated at 190W maximum. It is about 1" square and has a red, blue and white factory wired into the fan's light circuit in most cases. The AC power to the lights is run through the module to "ensure" no one puts more than 190W (about 2 amps)of light bulbs through the circuit for "safety" reasons. So four 60w bulbs and some CFLs will trip the module. These wattage limiters are sometimes feeding the fan motor in addition to the lights, however the units I have seen just control the "blue wire" going to the lights.
Some suggest simply cutting it out and splice the blue and red wires (or blue and blue) that are left in the fan after removing out the module. If the module has two whites, wirenut them together separately. Otherwise just insulate or cap the single white.
At that point your ceiling fan and lights are like all others made before 2005 and depend on the circuit breaker and you to only use four 40w bulbs max in the fan. As indicated, some low wattage CFLs will also trip the module. Some internet sources have the PL-190B available for around $15.
the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well. ceiling light
If I recall, this fan has no external switches that can be operated - all of the fan and light functions are controlled by the remote alone. If this is indeed the case, there is little that can be done outside of hoping the problem is with the remote itself. If that is the case, replacing the remote is likely to be cheaper and less labor intensive - that is if you can find one.
From what I have read, this fan is no longer in production nor available for purchase. You may have luck bringing the remote to Home Depot - the main (possibly the exclusive) distributor of the Hampton Bay brand to see if they have fans on display that make use of remotes for fan and light control. If so, try to see if all your remote functions work. If you find that the reverse function no longer works - you should ask the sales associate about how to go about ordering a replacement remote. If the remote fails to work at all, you can 1) try a "shot in the dark" about ordering a an exact replacement remote - with the hopes that the remote itself is defective - rather than the paddle fan, or 2) start new by buying a new paddle fan with hardware switches for fan speed, direction and light operation AND a remote control module to perform a whole replacement of your existing paddle fan.
The "add on" remote control gives you many of the benefits of the remote only fan - but also provides a "back up" way to operate the fan should the remote or module fail. Had this been the style you have currently, you could operate the fan by hand until the remote and / or ceiling module was replaced.
I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.
The reverse switch on my Hampton Bay ceiling fan didn't work. I cut the 6 wires; 1 white, 1 gray, 2 pink, 2 yellow. Here's what I did. Removed reverse switch. Had 6 wires white, gray, 2 yellow, 2 pink. Connected gray to yellow, connected white to pink and fan runs fine. Is this OK? I do not need to reverse fan. It's been running for 1 hour now with no problems. Don S.
Check wiring @ ceiling. Should b a black, white, green & red wire coming frm fan. Green is ground. Black & Red is power. White is neutral. Black provides power to fan, red provides lat power 4 lights. Remove light assembly, blue wire provides power. B sure 2 turn off power 2 fan b 4 working on it w/switch & breaker. Maybe lose wire connection or pinched wire grounding out. Fans require vibration proof bulbs regular bulb elements will break after short time use. Fan bulbs have larger filiments inside bulb.
I found a pdf of the manual on "KingOfFans.com" and there was a graphic showing the location of the switch. It is on top of the motor underneath the small bulbs in the top section of the fan. It is really rather difficult to get to and not the best design but I found it and it worked.

I have a fan just like that one to change a light bulb all you have to do is unscrew it from the fan itself and if that dosnt work then unscrew the plastic cover or unscrew a screw on the plastic cover
