Removing wattage limiter (?) from ceiling fan.

I have a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan. The lights suddenly stopped working. The fan still works as it should.

I replaced the light pull chain switch, but this did not help.

I read that the wattage limiter is the likely culprit.

I am attaching a few photos to find out which wires go where once the limiter is removed.

Photo 1: I had black wire #1 from the new switch connected to red wire #1 on the limiter. I had black wire #2 from the new switch connected to the black wire #2.

Photo 2: The blue wire #1 was connected to 3 black wires #2. I removed the blue wire. This is as far as I got.

How do I complete this little project? All help appreciated!

Connect one side of the switch to the lights. Other side of switch goes to
power in.
