Answers :

There may be some binding from twist in the seat back that is pinching the pivot points, dirt, or corrosiuon as well. If you can see the pivot points, some light silicone may be all it needs, it may show signs of having used lubriplate grease (white grease) if so, a slight application of some fresh ay be enough to alleviate the issue.

The motor may run fine in no load condition, but it may need new brushes, or it may have a few winds begining to short out. The only way to know is to try brushes first, and if that does not correct it, and the seat is not binding, replace the motor- it likely has some winds shorting. If none are available a motor winding shop should be able to evaluate it with a device called a "growler" to reveal if the armature is shorting.
