I received this part and cannot find in the browser the axes marked with red arrows, what are they and how are they created?

they're not axis, they're part of the part which hasn't been removed with the extrusion - basically cr4p/rubbish from a bad sketch.

 

Open sketch2 and zoom in - there are 2 small areas which are not selected for the extrusion, so leaving material in place.

Also note there are "basic errors" all over the part:

 

sketch1: not tied to the origin (bad practise)

             floating lines out in space - why?

 

sketch2: unconstrained (10 dims needed)

 

sketch7 : unconstrained (3 dims needed)

              dim'd from an edge, but not selected it as a construction line (better practise would ahve been to use the centreline, assuming it was originally drawn around it...  and format construction lines as construction, to enable better reverse-engineering in future)

 

sketch8: again, not formatting construction lines to construction

 

 

In all honesty, whoever created this part could do with a fair bit of training, without wanting to sound rude.

I accepted as solution too quickly, without checking.

Sketch 2 doesn't look like that, see the picture, and besides, the "axea" are apart from the part while in your picture the areas are adjacent to the line
