Go to Lowes or other such stores and they have a section with all of that stuff.

If by stopped working you mean that it no longer has any suction, then check the hose for a clog and also clean all the filters.

If you mean that it literally stopped running, then the most common cause is a faulty switch. If the machine is still under warranty, contact Shop Vac for a replacement motor, Switches for shop vacs are not available, only replacement motors. If the machine is not under warranty you can either replace the motor or the whole machine.

the machine should have a filter inside if it looks like a big foam sleeve than your ready to go, if it takes a paper bag as well or a paper sleeve over the big foam sleeve you want to remove them ( not the foam ) because the paper would fall apart and make a big mess in the machine.

The brushbar or brushroll of an upright vacuum is mostly belt driven for a very practical reason - if something jams it the belt will slip rather than burning out the motor. Some uprights have a clutch that disengages the drive to the brushbar automatically when in the upright position...

A vacuum in real life picks up stuff that doesn't always end up in the dustbag - carpet fibres, hair, sticky sweets and stuff and a considerable amount can become wrapped around the brushbar and slowing it down and making the belt slip. Drive belts deteriorate naturally but when slipping occurs the condition goes downhill rapidly.

The brushbar has a bearing at each end and these sometimes seize, though I have yet to replace one as I usually manage to free them and persuade a little lubricant in them.

When the belt begins slipping and finally fails, it usually takes a little time before the owner discovers something is wrong. By that time a fair amount of stuff has been picked up by the suction alone but because it hasn't been thrown back by the brushes with the usual velocity, much of what has been picked up gets stuck in the internal pipes and never reaches the dustbag.
It is rarely a matter of fitting a new belt - a belt failure usually means an hour or more of cleaning it out; a second vacuum cleaner is invaluable for this...
Fitting a new belt before it is needed is the answer...

A mystery machine. Let's guess the one in the middle!

If the price is an indication your Pondovac is seriously premium equipment, but perhaps not as it is clear shopping around can produce discounts, depending on model.

If the appliance is new and doesn't work out of the box as per instruction manual it should be assumed to be faulty and returned to the supplier for exchange or refund.

I have no experience of them but I would expect there is somewhere a method to prevent sludge and water entering the motor head and this might be a switch to cut the motor when the bin is full though the description speaks of intelligent circuitry and an automatic restart after the bin is drained - I don't think any circuitry is telepathic and whatever provides the information might be stuck or faulty...

Clearly, with the additional circuitry, checking is more complex and specialised than with the average vacuum cleaner and if the instructions have been followed, nothing more can be done without opening the head casing.
