If you have run any examples/extended/elelectromagnetic, you have written 2 files: currentRun.rndm and currentEvent.rndm, which contain the seed at begin of last run (and last event) of your previous job. To restart from a given seed, use the command: /random/resetEngineFrom fileName where fileName contains the seed

Interactively, see also the help for the directory /random/
