wget getting stuck

My wget command gets stuck when parsing through the links in a html page. I think the issue here is that this page has more than normal redirect URLs (around 30) compared to what we use to have (around 10). Wget gets stuck and does not do anything.

I even tried to put more tries and for longer timeouts but it just got stuck. If it runs sometimes then it takes 2-3 mins to run.

Anybody knows solution to this or any help?

The code is too long for this posting. it's definitely more than 500 characters. About errors... it just hangs on the wget command and does not go forward... I can certainly forward that file and code if i have your email address.
