There is probably a loop in your application which causes that the API gets called recursively and returns the error. Here is an explanation:

1/ A user opens/clicks the URL in the browser.
2/ Your application calls the API and passes it the URL (ie itself).
3/ The API loads the URL which calls the API again.
4/ At this point the API returns the 503 error because the API call made in step 2/ has not completed and is still active.

I would recommend that you start logging each API call on your end to understand what is going on.
