Question about Your One Source Square D #HOM 115CP 15A SP Circuit Breaker
How do I test a circuit breaker?
First of all, is the breaker bad? How did you test it? Breakers don't usually go bad, very seldom. A simple test is to use a meter and check for voltage at the output terminal. Is it tripping or what is going on? Unhook the wire feeding off the breaker, then reset it. If it holds, it's probably fine. You can use an ohm meter and check for 0 ohms through the breaker too (with it unhooked and out of panel)

To test a circuit breaker you should set the multimeter to "Volts AC" and touch the prongs to the breaker's terminal screw and a ground. If there is no power, the breaker is faulty and requires replacement.

I have a 40 amp gfi circuit breaker for my hot tub and want to know how to test it to ensure that it is not the breaker that is faulty as they are very expensive and from my understanding they cannot be returned for a refund after purchase

the first thing i would do is to remove the feed wire from the breaker and see if will reset if it does you have a short in the system , tell me more about the system and maybe i can advise further
