Question about Electrical Supplies
First confirm that you have current available on the 120 leg by trying a lightbulb (use the ground leg for your neutral). A meter can show 120V even if there is just a slight leakage, but no current available. If the bulb lights (with the two-pole breaker off) then you have a wiring error. Find our which other breaker is supplying that 120V through a process of elimination. You might also confirm that the 40A breaker actually does turn of both legs by checking the output lugs of that breaker with your meter. Put one lead on a lug and the other lead on the neutral. Repeat for the other lug. Good luck!

Check your local codes, you probably will need a ground fault current interrupting breaker(GFCI). Do not skip the codes, if anything goes wrong, your insurance company will not cover. Putting a special box GFCI protected will give you extra protected outlets for outside use.

SOURCE: 15 AMP versus 20 AMP outlet plug
The circuit is protected by the 15 amp breaker. That's what matters, the wire size and the breaker feeding it. It's OK to have a 20 amp recepticle fed by a 15 amp breaker.
