You will need a volt/ohm meter to accurately diagnose this unit as well as be familiar with it's use and have a basic grasp of electrical theory. To suggest you troubleshoot a device that can kill you should you make 1 mistake would be irresponsible.
Your description is pretty vague, if it does "nothing" that suggests it may not be getting power, check the breaker and re set it, even if it looks ok.The breaker may not be marked correctly or marked at all,
this is fairly common.
Look under the unit to see if it is hard wired or plugged in, check the outlet as well if it has one, wiring can be loose or burnt typically at a connection with a wire nut.
The draft motor if not running needs to tested for the correct voltage supplied and if it has this test for any amp draw. If you get voltage but no amp draw its bad, if you get an amp draw but it still wont work its physically worn or electrically shorted to itself internally..
The burners will not be allowed to come on until the draft is proven. As you can see there are many things that can cause a malfunction, at what point in a sequence of operation this occurs is critical to us ascertaining what it may be.
Get back with an observation of the units function and sequence of operation , we may be able to assist you better.

After using the grill cartridge for the first time, and then replacing it with the double burner cartridge again, now the fan goes on every time we turn those burners on. This is a grill only feature. ...

There has got to be an interlock that is actuated by inserting the grill into the cooktop. That interlock switch or sensor is probably stuck closed and still is sending the signal to the stove that the grill is being operated, not the burner cartridge. Pull the burners out, insert the grill back into the cooktop a few times feeling for interference or something not seating right. When you find the interlock or sensor, inspect it to see if it is hung up, clean it, adjust it, or tap it lightly. If the switch/sensor is operating properly, reinsert the burners, make sure the fan is turned off, and operate them, checking to see if the fan is now off. If not, there is either a faulty sensor or a fault in the signal line to the control board or in the board itself. But a hung up interlock is what I would be looking for first. Good luck.

Try carefully cleaning around the ignitors. Also clean hole in burners. Clean the holes closest to ignitors. This can be caused by a crack in ignitor, this requires replacement.

bibman: Sounds like the control switch or possible loose wiring. Take the element out and test the slots for voltage. You should get 220 Volts when on high.
