Default overpacked bowl

If you accidently overpack the bowl and the tobacco burns a little is there any way to save it other then repacking it?

i did that once, took all the coals off, put the bowl in the fridge for a few mins and it was fine.

It depends really, if the tobacco only burnt a little bit then you should be ok just simply take the coals off, get the bowl off and blow through the bottom of the bowl to clear any bad ashes etc. That normally works for most people.

Just be careful changing temperatures dramatically with your bowl.. Going from coal heat, to a fridge could shatter your bowl

Cannot stress this enough. Happened to me with a bowl and a vase (not in the fridge though, with water.)
This happens on occasion to me and the easiest solution is unfoil then adjust tobacco level as needed, and get some new foil. You might want to take the coals off and let the bowl sit for a few mins to cool down if your hands are not that heat resistant.

When it comes to this I'd have to ask if your over packing it to the point where it pulls like you're sucking on wet sand? Because IMO (with a mod bowl), it should be packed to where it feels slightly tight and that's not hard to do. You don't want it under packed, as I have found this to produce the least amount of smoke, and packing it tight where the pull is like sucking on a milkshake and lets everything get through just fine (no charing). I also DO NOT use foil, rather steel screens, as it's far more convenient and efficient with heat management and burning shisha. Really, unless you're seriously compacting the shisha in there and not shifting the coals enough for heat management, it should all be good.

Overpacking is not the cause for the burning usually its a heat mangment thing...Or maybee you did'nt overpack the bowl enuff...At any rate just take the coals off purge a few times and take a few more pulls without the coals on the bowl and let it cool for 2 minn...then put the coals back on
