The current rating of the breaker is dependent on the wire size it is protecting. In other words if your wire size dictates a max load of say 40 amps and you up the breaker size to 50 amps or greater then your wire becomes the device that will burn out. If the breaker is supplying voltage to your fuse panel it gets even stickier as the total load needs to be calculated. If you are having trouble with the 40amp breaker tripping you need to investigate why.
