The only difference is the 20 amp has a T shaped slot. The 15 amp will be fine. You probably can't find a device that requires the T slot in your house.

So I just replaced the GFCI with a new one. I turned on the circuit breaker. GFCI does not work. I tested all of the wires and there is no charge at all.

What do I do now? Replace the circuit breaker switch?

No, I don't think he caught the part where you said you turned it back on is all.
IF the breaker STAYED turned on, and the outlets do not work, there is most likely an open in the line somewhere.
If the breaker shuts itself off, there is a short.

When I turn the breaker to the on position, it stays that way even though there is no power from it. In fact, when the old GFCI failed last week and produced smoke, none of the circuit breakers switched off by itself.

Does "open in the line" mean the line is interrupted?

readar: The original 20a question has been resolved.
See post #3 above. The new problem is "no power."
