Check to make sure nothing is blocking the seat from moving forward. Sometimes things can get forgotten under there. My 1st aid kit once got hung up on my seat. Also there could be something in the tracks.

I hope it's that simple. Maybe you could try greasing or oiling the moving parts if it doesn't??? I'm not too sure what else would cause that.

Mine was having a similar problem, the motor would run into resistance at a certain point. I removed the seat for a different job and found a piece of metal underneath had bent out of shape. I tried straightening out which helped only somewhat.
