    No, you won't know if it's failed and needs replacing.

    They shouldnt flash the green light on means it is functional ... when the lights goes off it needs to be replaced.

    As pointed out by Andy whoever installed 2 line units ... clearly doesnt seem have a clue what they are doing ... I wonder if they fitted the busbar at the bottom and the earth wire and used the correct size wires ?

    While we picking your poor DB to pieces ... best you get a dremel and engrave the current rating on the circuit breakers ... then take tipex ... paint it over the engraving ... then rub if off leaving the current rating visible ... other wise every is going to tell you to replace the breakers due to the crap poor quality labelling on CBI breakers.
