U will need to replace the power seat transmission, the gears are most likely stripped out, not uncommon, this part is $800 so i would suggest u try to locate a used one.

SOURCE: Power Seat does not work on Expedition.

Have the same issue with mine. My solution was to take the seat out, real easy. And clean the entire motorized system with some MAF/electronic cleaner. From time to time I still have to play with knob a couple of times. My issue is the knob not motor. Not sure what the noise is. This could be the motor. Ensure you don't have any unknown obstructions blocking the motion.

you may have just over run the end stop , try sitting in seat and whilst pressing the back button push with your feet against the floor , this might get the seat moving again , if not i think you may be looking at getting a new switch , but get it checked by a mechanic first as there may be some other way to get it moving

If it isn't making noise, check the electrical connection. If its getting power it could be that the motor needs to be replaced.If it just hums when you try to operate it, the motor is either jammed or needs to be replaced.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.
