I fixed the problem w/out much effort. I used the online manual on the Nissan website to locate the problem motor and hit it with a monkey wrench. It has been working ever since.

2000 alero power seat stuck

The gear assembly attached to the motor is stripped/broken. The least expensive solution is to go the junk yard and buy a motorized seat for your model. If you go the dealer for the motor assembly it is sold as a complete assembly with the bottom seat frame. Cost is over $300 . Once you've replaced/repaired the seat, I'd recommend that you do not raise or lower the seat while sitting on it. I had to replace mine twice.
