a compressor support coupled to the base and configured to support the compressor;
at least one boss configured to protrude from the base and including an insertion hole with an inclined inner surface;
a vibration absorption member disposed between the compressor support and the boss, configured to absorb vibrations generated from the compressor, and having a height greater than a height of the boss; and
a fastening member configured to couple the boss, the vibration absorption member, and the compressor support, the fastening member including:
a head,
a body protruding from a bottom surface of the head, wherein a lower end of the body is supported by the boss, and
a fastening portion protruding from a bottom surface of the body,
wherein the boss protrudes from the base into a hole of the vibration absorption member,
wherein the fastening member is inserted into the insertion hole of the boss and the vibration absorption member, and at least a part of the fastening member protrudes through the boss and downward from a lower surface of the base at least the part of the fastening member including an inclined portion that is seated on the inclined inner surface of the insertion hole in the at least one boss,
wherein the fastening portion has a smaller diameter than the body, and the fastening member further includes a guide provided between the fastening portion and the body,
wherein the guide is provided on an upper end of the fastening portion to guide insertion of the fastening member into the boss, and the guide includes the inclined portion seated inside the boss on the inclined inner surface of the boss,
wherein the inclined portion has a diameter that gradually decreases in a direction moving away from the head, and
the inclined inner surface has a diameter that gradually decreases in a same direction as the inclined portion and corresponds to the diameter of the inclined portion.
