Yes, never use a 15 amp socket in a 20a service.  Is there anything else connected to the same circuit, it shouldn\’t but it could explain why you are not able to set the GFI\’s.  Usually a kitchen circuit has 240V into it.  If you connect the wires incorrectly, you will never be able to set the GFI.
