You probably have a dirty switch or a bad connection to the electric motor.Follow the wires to the motor under the seat, unplug them and then plug them back up a few times.If this doesn't fix the problem,you need to replace the switch or the motor.

the switch has failed or a combination of the switch and motor. the switch will be the easiest to replaace as you will have to remove and on some vehicle partially disassemble the seat to do the motor. The switch os mounted on the plastic panel which is held to the seat usually by 2 - 4 screws.

See if the slide rail is bent. We just picked one up in a wrecking yard, leather seat perfect condition from a '98 Explorer, it has the same problem. If you put it back too far, it gets stuck and won't go forward. Check it for a bend or a burr in the metal which can be filed. Otherwise, ??
