Use it or lose it - as the saying goes.

You will probably find that it is a case of lubrication! Especially if the car lives outside and the previous owners havn't used the folding mirrors on a regular basis.
You may be able to get away with squirting some wd40 type stuff in and around where the mirror folds - you might fre up the motor.
Also I find the trick is not to turn the control too quickly - sometimes if you turn it too quickly the mirrors fail to fold. If you turn the control slowly they work better.

If you keep folding/unfolding the mirrors they may free up again.
Failing that you will have to remove the mirrors to gain access to the motors and spray/clean them direct.
