    Abstract: An inner guide plate has an inner guide plate surface that guides air. An outer guide plate has an outer guide plate surface that guides the air toward a discharge port of the fan. In each of predetermined cross sections perpendicular to a rotation axis of the fan, a reference line is a line connecting the rotation axis and an outer guide end of the outer guide surface that is a radially inner end. In each of the predetermined cross sections, a guide line is a line connecting the rotation axis and an inner guide end of the inner guide surface that is a radially outer end. In each of the predetermined cross sections, a phase difference angle is an angle between the guide line and the reference line in a rotation direction of the fan. The phase difference angles of the predetermined cross sections are different from each other.
