Hard starting br-400 blower

Stihl br-400 blower has been starting hard the last month or so. It's a back-up, we generally use the pb-650 all the time. It mainly starts hard when it's hot, cold starts are ok, but could be better(3 to 6 pulls when cold) ( 6+ when hot). Good fuel, fuel filter is clean, new sparkplug. Mechanic at the dealer where I get a lot of my parts said the coils have been known to break down causing hard starting.Checked spark, appears to be weak, not a nice sharp spark you like to see. Starting to think he is correct, before I drop $50 to $60 on coil, what do you guys think? Thanks
