Should this get hot in a portable AC unit?

I have a portable ac unit and was wondering if this is normal for this to be hot, I pointed the heat gun at it and it was around 220 degrees. The AC seems to be cooling and I like it sounds ok, It just seemed really on the side.

Thank You

Assuming that you are pointing to the black object and not just the insulation sheet, the answer is yes. The black object is the compressor and it will get quite hot under normal conditions.
