When test & reset buttons are pushed does the outlet trip then reset?

If test & reset do not work, the GFCI is defective & would need to be replaced. If there are two sets of wires on the GFCI it is required that they are wired to the correct terminals of the new device. Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you
