The little black box inside the fan motor area is called the ballast and in most cases this is what goes out and needs replacement.

when incandescent light bulbs burn out they often draw huge amounts of current . thats the bright flash you see .. as the filiment breaks it can start an arc .. the arc vaporizes the filiment material which becomes a conductive plasma.. that, for all practical perposes, short circuits the lamp for a short time ..currents can go so high that they damage the "triac" (like a transistor) in the solid state controller (the electrical brick inside your fan) ... often the triac fails shorted ... so it stays on all the time just as yours is doing ... the triac is usually soldered to a printed circuit board inside the fans electronic control box .... sometimes they are easy to change and are inexpensive ... but often they are sealed inside with potting compound ... that makes them unrepairable by anyone not skilled in the art ....they expect you to buy a new control unit .. or sometimes you can send in your control unit for repair ... you have to call the manufacturer to find out what they want you to do ... by the way .you cant use the new spirial lamps in most of these controllers... there is no hazzard in using your fan/light the way it is . of course you wont have remote control over the lamp until the controller is repaired or replaced ... light bulbs above 40 watts have a built in fuse in their base.. that is supposed to minimize this problem .. but the triac can blow before the fuse opens .... light bulbs 40 watts and below are not required to have the fuse so present a little greater risk to solid state controllers .....
