How do you know that the coil is bad? Have you checked it with an inline spark tester? It is very rare for this model to burn up an ignition module.
Please check for spark with an inline tester. If there is no spark with that tester, then disconnect the on/off switch and retest. If there is no spark with the switch disconnected, then indeed the module is faulty.
To access the module, the engine has to be removed from the case. Start on the right side and remove the muffler cover and muffler. This is a good time to visually inspect the cylinder. Look into the exhaust port with a flashlight and look at the piston. If there are scratches/scoring on the side of the piston or cylinder walls, then the blower is probably not worth repairing.
On the left side, remove the air filter cover, then remove the filter base (carb cover). This will expose the carburetor. Remove the 2 fuel lines leading to the carb, and then the throttle linkage and remove the carb. Next, remove the carb mount.
Now, remove the 15 or 20 screws that hold the plastic case halves together. The lower hinged cover will have to be releases before the case will seperate. Once you have the case apart, the engine can be removed. The ignition module is now exposed and can easily be replaced.
To set the proper gap of the new module to the flywheel, use a clean and dry business card. Lay the card across the magnet of the flywheel and place the module against it, then install the screws and tighten up the module. Remove the business card.
While you have the blower down this far, check to make sure the cylinder is tight against the crankcase. This model is prone to having the cylinder come loose and will effect compression.
Reassemble in reverse order. Take pictures as you go to aid in reassembly. If the blower is more than a couple of years old, I would recommend to replace the fuel lines at this time. It will save a repair down the line.
You will need allen wrenches, phillips screwdriver, T15, T20, & T20 torx, a large, clean workspace. This is not a repair for the beginning mechanic, but with patience, it is not too difficult.
Good Luck !

I have never used, nor heard recommended Ace synthetic fuel. I do believe in synthetic lubricants, and the fuel may be part of the problem. See if you access the H and L mixture screws on the carburetor and adjust them. Here is how that is done:
