Depending on the symptoms of the seat not working, this may be related to the power motor itself not working properly or potentially something lodged in the track not allowing it to move freely. As you may know, there is a small electric motor that operates the power action of the seat. when this motor does not have the required power to it, this may cause the seat not to function properly. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your power seat.
