Engine won’t start when hot

Hi, I bought a Makita 4 stroke leaf blower last week. Right out of the box, it wouldn’t start if I had the engine ran few minutes or longer, or it stalls when engine gets hot. Once the engine is cooled down, I can start it with one pull. Any idea what could be the issue? I called tech support and was advised to return it. The place I purchased ask me to keep it but gave me a refund. Now I’m stuck with it, I wanted to make it work.

Right when it quits, check the spark. It may have a bad coil/ignition module.
